That guy went to a lot of work to make a good joke. Hope he thinks the sacrafice of a tractor - regardless of brand - was worth it. :(

I hate to argue with you, but yeah they are. I enlarged it and looked, I think it is real. It looks as if it was painted in place, and you can see where the dirt has settled leaving old faded paint showing. I really like the cut off spoke wheels like are on it, but there is no way to put weights on them.

Well then that's just stupid in the extreme. If I saw somebody doing that to a John Deer (or any other classic tractor) I'd resort to violence if needed to stop the moron.... :?

There is a John Deere setting in a flower bed not too far north of me. The guy built up a frame from landscape timbers around the tractor and it is partially submerged like the H in the picture. The tractor is an unstyled A or B but the point is that the tractor was shot and not worth salvaging. It looks good from a distance but up close you can see that it is only partly there. He shot some paint on it and painted "Retired" on the side of the hood where the JD decal would be. It looks good from the road but it is junk.
So what may seem to be a waste might not be so. The shine of fresh paint and a quick glance has sold many tractors to unsuspecting buyers who ended up with a money pit that should have been scrapped.
If well used, they will eventually wear out to the point that it is not economically feasible to keep them going. We hate to see that (and some won't admit that) but it does happen.
What better way to pay homage to a well used tractor than to let it live on as yard art where you can at least enjoy looking at it.

Well said. Sometimes yard art is a good way to pay homage to the equipment that helped our farmers feed our nations . :applause:

Wow.

Actually, that was featured in Farm Show magazine some years back.

The secret? There is no tractor buried there. What you see is all there is.

Everything was cut off a parts tractor at ground level.
