History
This is the old two cylinder 16 hp John Deere 650 Diesel tractor I have been working on the past week or two. (Make that busting my knuckles and getting all sorts of grease, grime and 30 years worth of dirt in my hair, in my ears, on my face, in my nose and every exposed part of my body!) It belonged to my father before he passed away, he purchased it to do the small mowing chores around the farm after I had moved off to boarding school and then College. It barely had enough power to pull itself out of a ditch when the mower was going - But it was reliable and always ready to go! It is now being lovingly restored to working condition for duties around the farm here. Someday soon my son (Who is away at school now) will use this tractor to mow and dig post holes - just like I did for dad when I came home from school for a few weeks on holiday breaks. - 11/05/2012
