John Deere Compact Tractor

Spawned by a hankering to build something green and yellow...and a little different, I present the John Deere Model 3203 Compact Tractor. Meant to be a small, yet heavy duty workhorse, this tractor can be fitted with all kinds of additional doodads to suit all your farming needs. I built this particular model as it seemed to fit the tires and pieces I had available in yellow and green and it nicely fits The Aminal Kingdom build challenge over at LUGNuts. I’m quite happy with how this turned out but I learned only after I was almost finished building that they had to recall this particular model due to a potentially faulty forward drive pedal that can get stuck, posing a risk of loss of control and injury to the driver and any nearby looky-loos. Awww Nuts!
