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!

    Kool! Neat departure from the kustom kulture stuff, Lino. Now all you need is a pasture to mow ;0)

    Once more very original! I like it a lot, and you always come up with something fresh!

    I ave to admit that for a little while I was wondering what it had to do with the Animal kingdom. It's a bit of a stretch, but very imaginative (as usual). Very nice MOC too!

  • Lino Martins 5y

    Thanks all for all the awesome comments. Thanks especially to anyone who invited to a group or blogged me...especially blogged me, I appreciate that greatly. it was indeed a nice departure from my usual hot rods and customs but such a refreshing change to be able to do this. I really wish Lego had a license with John Deere.

    Lino this is very similar to the John Deere that I mow my yard with...well excluding the roll bar and the fact that I never wash it !
  • Lino Martins 5y

    gregory Hergert...hopefully yours wasn't on the recall list like this one is.
  • Phillip Ryman 5y

    Haha, locking gas pedals... that sounds familiar.... oh right, Toyota! Ha. Nice tractor!
  • Lino Martins 5y

    Phillip Ryman...yeah, Toyota is in a heap of trouble these days.
  • Tim Gould 5y

    Hot stuff on this one.
