    My very first Deere.....Made my childhood wonderful.

    Picked up my first Deere from my parents garage the other day. Thought I would share the picture with you all. They just don't build them like they used to! Ahh the memories of riding it when I was a child are great.

    Hello Fenwayer
    neat older Model 520 John Deere Pedal Tractor. Ertle made those Tractor's for John Deere for quit awhile. The real early one's had steel front wheels then they changed to Plastic front wheels. I bought one brand new for our Daughter 22 Years ago, her's has the Plastic front wheels on it. it has been moved and in storage for many years. The Test of time took It's toll on the paint and decals so I decided to restore it so that my wife & I could pass it down to our Granddaughter at her first Birthday Party that is coming this weekend. I took it all apart to paint it. The rear steel wheel's were rusted so I had to mask off the whole tire so that I could sand down the wheels and repaint them with John Deere Yellow paint, which was Nerve racking to say the least. The Pedal assembly was a Little challenging as it is Pre-loded to keep the drive chain tight. Once I got it all apart I noticed that rain water had gotten in down between the Two body half's and rusted the inside of the chain Guard. I sanded it all down and Painted it as well inside the chain guard. I Lubricated the chain, sprrocket, and all of the Plastic bushing's in the Tractor with never Seize while I had it apart. The Aluminum bodies on these Tractor's were made by the Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan. Super early one's with the steel wheels have no starter on their engines that came later on with the Plastic wheeled Tractors and the early one's also had a steel seat not black Plastic like the one I have has on it. Ertle no Longer offer's these aluminum cast metal bodied Tractors they now only sell Plastic. It is worth a restoration on these so that you can pass them down in the family. Here are some picture's of it apart while I was Painting the Body Panel's for my John Deere 318 I did this Tractor as well. If you need any Part's just let me know I have a short list of supplier's for these style Tractors that sell about every Part on them shown below is a link to some I got parts from. My decal's came off Evil-Bay they are exact reproductions and were only $18.00 which Included Free shipping for the set that this Tractor needed. Regards, Hammerdown

    I had one as a kid too, mine has the metal seat. I worked that thing hard pulling a red wagon. My dad had to replace the rear tires for me because I wore them down. I don't know if it's ever been fully restored, I think my brother took it to give to his son.
