WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY | MEET THE ANGLO TEAM | TRACTOR RESTORERS & SERVICING TRACTOR GALLERY  | A HISTORY OF TRACTORS 



Restoring a vintage or antique tractor is not a task to be undertaken by the faint of heart.  It's a labour of love and can take time, effort and deep pockets.

According to Parrett Farm Equipment - specialist in vintage and antique tractor restoration, the process should look like this:

 

1. Check and examine tractor
2. Take off sheet metal and disassemble other parts
3. Tear down tractor
4. Gears and bearings will be taken out, inspected, cleaned, and replaced as needed
5. Wash and degrease tractor – most parts disassembled at this time
6. Prepare tractor for sandblasting
7. Sandblast tractor parts
8. Hang all parts individually
9. Prime all parts as soon as possible
10. Begin painting process with first coat. Each piece is sanded following each coat of paint
11. Most tractor parts can get 6-8 coats of paint
12. Tractor is reassembled
13. Get manifold exhaust pipe and muffler ceramic coated (optional)
14. Restoration of the wheels will follow the same process as the tractor
15. Sheet metal will be mounted to tractor
16. Get the tractor running
17. Restoration is complete

LEWIS MCDONALD

Lewis is a young, enthusiastic restorer – at the age of 14, without any knowledge but a passion to learn, Lewis purchased a seized, solid, Ferguson TEA 1948 from a local dealer and began his first restoration.  With help from his Grandad, uncle and lots of other friends the TEA was bought back to life and a year later came 3rd place in it’s first show.
