1949 Volvo Tractor

Tractor fail
His dad bought the tractor many years ago from a farmer. When his dad stopped using it it ended up in a barn for 25 years. Two years ago he started it and it worked like a charm. That was not the case on this occasion. I spotted the tractor a few days ago now by the side of the road. The planned trip to the summerhouse out on the island had to be put on hold for a while. His son was on his way to help out. They only use the old tractor twice every year. To get the boat into and out of the water. Why it wasn't already on the island I do not know.

Look at those old tires! At least the guy is smiling so he must know what he's doing. Tractors are a great accessory for any farm or any area you might own in the country, or for pulling boats out of the water. :)

A fine, tack-sharp photograph. Quite an interesting old tractor.
