Few months ago we went down & visited w/ the farmer down the road from us.. He had a couple of his old tractors out and we took 2 of them for a spin.. Got back & little brother fired up the 4586 & took it for a drive around the pasture..

Back in the day many years ago, I drove the top of the line, at the time,- #4020. Also drove a #4010, #520 and a Model #70. Brings back a lot of memories. Also drove what the farmer called a "popin johnny" Old model John Deer two cylinder that had a fly wheel for a starter on the side. Open up the compression valves and spun it till I had no fingerprints trying to start it.

This is a 3020 w/ an aftermarket cab.. It was interesting to see all the sweeps move on the cultivator..

Great pics, brought back some memories from the old days. up

Here is one from my past, it sat in a field for years in a field on a farm north east of Miles, TX, then moved to town and repainted etc.. Needs a new paint job, I am sure some day that will be done again.

I forget which model he said this was.. The cool thing on this tractor is it was originally a steel wheel model like the one in the picture DC posted, and was later converted to rubber.. They added more spokes to the wheel and those welds eventually rusted out and ruined them.. Tire tread is excellent but they won't ever inflate w/ out the wheels being repaired..

I think that last one is an early model of the John Deere Model A, but the wheels are wrong.

Here is a cool photo of a bunch of Poppin Johnies. My grandfather is on the first tracter. The story was that a local farmer had back surgery and the community farmers came out an prepared his fields that year.

Great pics up I have an older friend down the road that is a Poppin Johnie hoarder. You pull into his place and all you see are Poppin Johnies everywhere. Crazy.
