1959 John Deere 430U Tractor
A tractor is an engineering vehicle specifically designed to deliver a high tractive effort at slow speeds, for the purposes of hauling a trailer or machinery used in agriculture or construction. Most commonly, the term is used to describe a farm vehicle that provides the power and traction to mechanize agricultural tasks, especially tillage, but nowadays a great variety of tasks. Agricultural implements may be towed behind or mounted on the tractor, the word tractor was taken from Latin, being the agent noun of trahere to pull. The first recorded use of the meaning for an engine or vehicle for pulling wagons or ploughs occurred in 1901.
Serial number 146569 designates a 1959 John Deere 430U tractor. “U” meaning Utility, a lower to the ground multi-functional, multi-attachment tractor that can perform many tasks in addition to tilling a field. Typically mowing, snow removal, moving organic material, and general labor-saving tasks around an estate, or small farm, make this the perfect helping hand machine. This very complete, original tractor has a 5-speed transmission, full 3-point hitch, a power take off cover, rear weights, new front tires, and an excellent plate. One of 1,340 made, it is in excellent overall condition, with everything fully functional.

Deere green with yellow highlighting, yellow steel wheels, a leaping Deere logo, and adjustable axle are noted on this example.
