Many years ago I was looking for a challenge, I began working on the tractor. Once it was completed I moved on to the manure spreader. I ended up setting this aside for a few years, until recently. This is my finished project. Everything that should move, does. When I came to the chain, I decided to try and make my own to keep the integrity of the wooden project, rather than buy the chain. They are about 10 ft when connected. I am not sure what I will do with it next, so I mounted it onto some plywood for storage.

10’ long ? Wow, that’s quite a build. A real nice build at that. The tractor wheels remind me of an old Fordson tractor my uncle refurbished about 50 years ago. Great job

Great job ’chip...

Wooden Tractor and Manure Spreader
incredible how a bit of BS goes a long way… talking about a long way, how long is it? what are the dimensions… looks too big for a typical “wall shelf dust collector”!

Lots of details, looks great, bigger than I thought it was. Can’t wait to finish up my shop build and set up to get back into woodworking. Always enjoyed building small toys for the kids, now it will be for the grandkids.

I love….... ( Мне ОЧЕНЬ нравится….... )
But it is advisable to know the model of the tractor, its real NAME Who manufactured in the industry Who is the constructor ?? These names must Live ….. We must not forget the names of these wonderful people. They moved the progress of the world and facilitated hard work.
But today’s progress moves so …. that people are left without work ….....
