Jim McGraw on his '58 John Deere

A caretaker of old tractors

Listen to this story
Some people collect coins or stamps, others find joy in restoring vintage farm equipment. In the antique tractor world, collectors are divided into color categories: Farmall red, Allis-Chalmers orange, or John Deere green. Some collectors are sentimental and still want to use old tractors on the farm simply because it brings back the old good days. Others resurrect these metallic work horses to compete in tractor pulls. Todd Moe caught up with Jim McGraw, a St. Lawrence County classic tractor buff, as he was preparing for the annual Old Fashioned Harvest Days Exhibition in Madrid.
