I present to you, the one and only die-cast tractor that I have in my collection. It is a jalop tractor cast to rule all jalop tractor casts.
This is a single axle tractor. Lovingly referred to as a “Walking Tractor” or “Two Wheel Tractor”. Beloved in Thailand and a rare (but not uncommon) sight throughout the world. These handy machines can be used to pull a trailer like this model or they can be outfitted to pull a ground tiller as well as other options.
This beast is quite large. It is about the same size as my Auto Art cars. So, I estimate the scale to be about 1:15. There is no brand noted on the cast. I purchased it on DealExtreme for a miniscule $15 with free shipping. Even though I do not collect tractors... I REGRET NOTHING! It’s awesome. The detail is terrific. The Tires are incredible. The paint job is sub-par and riddled with blemished and bubbles. But, it’s a tractor Yo! I love the metal details and little things like the foot rests and the throttle linkages. The tailgate is removable and the bed tilts back via hydraulics. How cool is that? About 80% of this cast is metal. So, it is quite heavy.
I was compelled to buy it because I have never seen anything like it. Honestly, if I had a farm, I would totally want a 1:1 version of this. It seems quite handy!
Oh, and it has a built in lighter... Can your AutoArt do that? I don’t think so.
