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. Sometimes the tractor is just too old to do the job required. Sometimes a collision, fire or other accident damages the unit to the point where it is not cost effective to repair it. 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.
