  7. What Happens To Your Tractor?

    What Happens To Your Tractor?

    What happens to your tractor?

    Every day, hundreds of farm tractors, combines and other equipment are retired from service throughout the country. The reasons are many.

Many times a major component, such as an engine or transmission breaks, and the repair bill becomes more expensive than the overall value of the tractor. Sometimes, as we see more and more frequently, the farmer retires and the tractor he’s farmed with for decades retires with him.
