OUR BEGINNINGS

 

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.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

 

There are a number of projects going on right now. The one is doing an out-of-frame engine overhaul on a 1970 JD 4020 Diesel Powershift as well as rebuilding the Hydraulic pump, brake valve, new PTO seal and updating the injection pump to the JDB pump. This tractor was one of our own tractors bought locally over 10 yrs ago.

 The other interesting project is a 1972 JD 3020 Diesel Powershift. The thing that is unique about this tractor is that it is a consecutive serial number to the last 3020 we restored for a customer. These two tractors are very rare, as both are 1972 3020 diesel, Powershift’s tractors, are last yr built and have consecutive serial numbers. These tractors also belong to the same collector. The 3020 is one of the most valuable collector tractor on the market today which makes these two tractors more valuable in the coming years.

Some of the other projects include: engine overhaul on a JD 1120, transmission rebuild on a 1971 JD 4620, repair oil leaks in a customers JD 4000 and a 4320 as well as getting 2 late 4020’s ready to paint.

 

TRACTORS FOR SALE

 

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.
