This week's classic iron is a unique piece of equipment that stands alone in its category.
Paul Tingler of Williamstown, West Virginia, created this unique piece from several pieces of machinery. While this garden tractor might not have much use in the field, it’s a magnet for young enthusiasts.
“It's made me feel good to see another kid on a tractor,” said Tingler.
The tractor is a hodgepodge of different materials he’s picked up along the way or were given to him.
“That tractor’s bits and pieces, the framework and the differential on the front axle, were given to me by my brother,” said Tingler.
When his sons were young, he said they needed “entertainment.” After a trip to an engine show, it was the start of a new project.
“This was just a fabrication work, a trial and error,” said Tingler.
With a variety of parts, safety is the number one concern.
“Kids don’t ride it without parental permission,” said Tingler. “I want to make sure it’s safe.”
