This is a replica 1939 John Deere model BR, which I built for my grandchildren. The tractor driver is 3? year old Jordan Neal. The engine is a 6S Briggs and Stratton which drives a wheel horse trans-axle. The front wheels are 4'; rear wheels are 8'. I was able to hand fabricate most of the tractor.

Children have ridden this tractor at many engine shows in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio. Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Seeing the children laugh and smile when driving this tractor has touched our hearts and souls. We can't say who enjoys the ride most-- the children or us.
