Tractor Tales: John Deere 530

September 26, 2016 12:54 PM

Machinery Pete heads to southeastern Ohio for this week’s Tractor Tales.

Blaine Melvin is active in the Pioneer Antique Power Association, spending many hours working on his 1959 John Deere 530.

Even though this tractor looks like it’s never seen a day of hard work, Melvin makes sure it gets the job done.

 “I bought it from a private individual in 2007, and I’ve completely went through it,” said Melvin.

Professionals built a new radiator and carburetor, while Melvin sand blasted and painted the equipment.
