This is an introduction into the world of T&D Restorations INC. This is a business that specializes in restoring 1969 to 1972 Classic New Generation John Deere Tractors. This family run business was started by father and son in 1996 and has grown over the years as they have got more experience and became widely known for the quality of work they do and their attention to details, both during restorations done on a tractor to the tractors they buy for customers or for their own use.

            This small family run business also consists of their own crew of 3 body work guys, one of which has had over 30 years experience in this kind of work, that do an excellent job to make old rusted through or bent parts look like new without using body fillers or just buying new parts to replace the original ones. Although as any collector or buyer is aware that, occasionally, there are parts that have to be replaced because they are in such bad shape, when this happens the customer is told before any more work is done.




            There was a number of projects on the go this month. Right now Tony and Dan are working on installing new brake pads on a 1971 JD 4000 PS, as well as doing a complete out-of-frame engine overhaul on a 1964 JD 3020 Diesel Power shift.  We are also cleaning a preparing a 1961 JD 2010 Gas for sandblasting. A 4020 with a roll guard and canopy was just finished and the pictures are posted on our website www.tdrestorations.com it also had all the wiring changed and set up as the original factory tractor would’ve been right down to the paint job. These where the big jobs a lot of small stuff was also done.




The tractors that are for sale from T&D are driven and tested to make sure the components are in full working order. Each tractor is dyno tested to make sure all the engine components are working properly. If you buy a tractor from T&D they will consult with you any issues the machine you are purchasing is having plus its better qualities.  T&D does this because we don’t want you to experience any surprises, however unforeseen and unexplainable situations can occur.  A good thing with your choice of buying a tractor form T&D is they stand behind the work they do as well as fix any issues resulting from the restoration process. We are one of the few companies out in the world that does not play games. What you see and are told is what you get, and nothing more or less.
