Went camping in Lancaster PA. this past weekend. Love to just tour the countryside looking at the farm land and countryside. Leaves were turning nicley. Went by one very nice looking homestead and low and behold there was a young amish girl mowing on a 300 series JD. with steel rims and wheels. Have seen many tractors and iompliments with this setup in the past but this was my first lawnmower. Very cool to see wish i had a camera to photo the JD.

Most likely Mennonite, not Amish. The Amish do not use anything with electricity or gasoline or diesel engines. The Mennonites do, and they usually convert all of their tractors to steel wheels. The Mennonite farm where I get a lot of my produce is run by a large extended family, and they have at least 5 tractors that I have seen that all have steel wheels, ranging from a Case 444 garden tractor to an old Farmall Cub and various sizes in between.
