Every tractor has a story

The preservation of old agricultural machinery keeps our heritage alive, says Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society curator John Burnett.

The club was started in 1965 and now has about 200 old tractors on display at Brayshaw Park, Blenheim. One of them, a 1954 McCormick Farmall tractor, was restored last month and is looking brand new.

The job took 130 hours, says Spring Creek engineer Trevor Collins, and he did it for free. He is semi-retired and wanted to thank the club for loaning him old machinery parts to replicate other restorations.

He grew up on a mixed sheep and cropping business in Bealiba — in the Central Goldfields Shire — and was introduced to Internationals when his brother bought one, some 50 years ago.

Geoff, at 68, isn’t so young that he cannot recall feeding the animals with a horse and cart, and remembers the difference the International, or indeed any of their early tractors, made on the family farm.

Today's dose of good news: Iowa's most notorious tractor, stolen from a warehouse in Mason City, has been recovered intact in Minnesota.

Hinton offered a $20,000 reward for its return and blanketed the region and collectors' magazines with an Old West-style "wanted" poster.
