You’ve read all the articles, now watch the movie! Our John Deere 6800 restoration made its ‘red carpet’ debut at the LAMMA Show to universal acclaim. It proved to be a major attraction at the event, receiving 5-star reviews from machinery journalists across the agricultural media spectrum and messages of congratulations from scores of admiring visitors to the stand including farmers, dealers and other exhibitors.
If you missed the tractor at LAMMA, you can now watch our video (below) which, through slide-show and time-lapse video, records the major milestones in the restoration project, from receiving the tractor from the previous owner in September 2021 to rolling out the stunning finished article in December 2022.
Beyond the restoration work, we have equipped the tractor with some of the latest add-on technologies to better meet the demands of modern-day farming. Our born again 6800 now boasts a brand new Stoll ProfiLine front loader with electronic Pro Control joystick, a new Zuidberg front linkage, front PTO and override protector, a pickup hitch fully refurbished by the OEM, Dromone Engineering, to match the original from the early 1990s and a new Flexxaire reversing cooling/cleaning fan.
