You may find that looking for tractor tires for sale in your area can be a hard task. This can be especially true if you are searching for quality used tires for your tractor or piece of lawn care equipment.
Luckily with the internet it is now easier than ever to find new and used tractor tires for sale for prices well within your budget. Online forums and search results will not only give you places to purchase tractor tires for sale online but also locally. However, you may find it a bit harder to find local results so you may need to place some phone calls as well.
The best way to find the tractor tires for sale you are looking for is to know specifically the size or brand you need. Whether you are looking for antique, John Deere, used, lawn or rear tires you should be able to find them if you specifically search or ask for the brand or type you need.
If you are not sure what size of tractor tires for sale you should be looking at, try getting the size number off of the side of your current tire. If you do not have a tire to reference you can usually search online for your type of tractor or lawn care equipment for the size chart. If you still are unable to locate what size or type of tire you need try asking a tractor and lawn equipment specialist.
A wholesale store or shop is a great place to look for tractor tires for sale because of the huge discounts you can take advantage of. You normally don’t buy just one tire so buying wholesale could save you some cash and give you a great deal on two or more tractor tires. There are hundreds of great deals out there just waiting to be found, so shop around to take advantage of them.
Threading change gear label on a century-old 20-inch x 12-foot Muller metal lathe in a junkyard, made by the Bradford Mill Company
This large and ancient metal lathe is located in Lookout, California, in Lassen County, Big Valley. This is in the boonies of Northern CA.
The label reads:
The Muller Lathe
The Bradford Mill Co.
The size is as follows, roughly measured:
Swing over bed: 20"
Swing over carriage: unknown
Four-jaw chuck diameter: 18"
Bed length: 12 feet
Bed width, center to center across the outer two ways: 16”
Maximum workpiece length, center to center: 8 feet
It may have been built in the 1886-1901 era, from what I’ve learned so far.
It is owned by a fine older gentleman named Willie. He owns a LARGE property full of old tractors, cars, trucks, bulldozers and vehicles of varied and sundry description. My girlfriend Zoe bought a 1955 Carpenter (1954 GMC based) school bus from him, and he towed it the 17 miles to our Ranch with his old tractor on public roads:
Photos of the bus can be seen in another set of mine:
Willie also renovates and runs old steam engines. His tools are basic and in, umm, often less than pretty condition.
I believe he told me that despite its condition, having been outside for many years, this lathe was still in occasional use, wonder of wonders. I expect that it could be restored to its former glory by a man willing and able to put a LOT of time and/or money into it. I plan to list it for sale soon, online. If nothing else, it makes a magnificent lawn ornament.
Almost all of the images in this set were 3-exp HDRs, processed with Photomatix. The camera was a Nikon D50.

This video is of the 40.00 riding mower find! A little wheeling and dealing lead to me getting this perfectly awesome and tuff riding lawn mower that looks about a year old for just 40.00! Later I sold it for 300.00 for a nice little profit.
