I wanted construct a toy tractor, after looking at many images, I settled on the Minneapolis Moline A4T 1600 because I liked the design and straight lines. Work processed quite quickly, and was soon ready for a new set of tires. In the last issue of Farm Show magazine I found this article.
A bit on the expensive side, got a deal on the price, $8,000. each mounted on rims. They have more flotation than double regular tires, which has many advantages of not compacting the soil and do not leave that squished up lines.
Cheaper than a track assembly though, so I ordered up a set. Quite massive as when I went to pick them up, it was all my 1935 Chev truck could handle
Once they where installed the tractor looked quite sharp.
Redid the interior also
So now just waiting for spring to come in the north to start farming. Now that this done is done I will be working on restoring a Massey Harris 44. of the early 50’s vintage.
The link to the video of how the tires and rims where manufactured, an overview of the tractor components, then assembly and completed tractor. https://youtu.be/fHqZG3Xtcr8
