A little tractor repair

Even when it rains, we still have work to do. We may not be in the field, but we have plenty to do around the shop, like tractor repair. This isn’t just any old tractor that we were working on. It is a John Deere 4020, and my brother Dan is the fourth owner of it, and the previous owners were family. I guess you could say we keep it in the family! We use this tractor to lift heavy parts for machinery or to lift something high. A tractor and loader is a very handy tool around the shop.

Mom isn’t normally helping us out in the shop, but very often she does come out and turn a wrench or two. She has enough work of her own to keep her busy all dang day. And I would NOT want to switch jobs with her! Here are a few pics to show what sort of repairs we have been doing to it.

    That is good to have a tractor to do the heavy work.

    A 4020 was the best Tractor John Deere ever made .What year is it a late 60’s or early 70’s model ?

      I think my brother would have to agree with you Tom! I’m not too sure on the year, I’d have to get back to you on that.
