When you start buying farm toys for the kids, beware: You could be about to slip into your second childhood. Jim Poorman knows all about that. “I clearly remember my first toy tractor, a 1:16 scale John Deere Model 60,” he says.

“Over time, I had several to carpet farm or play with outside on the dirt pile,” Jim recalls. “As I grew older they were all packed away. When my wife, Joanne, and I started our family, we began buying toys for the children.” At about the same time, he began attending farm toy shows. “I started buying additional toys for our children,” he says. “I also started adding to my small assortment of toys from the past that had been stored away. And gradually I became a collector.”

Local shows offered a nice selection of farm toys. But Jim — who lives in Somerset, Ohio — began hearing about bigger shows, like one in Lafayette, Ind. and the National Farm Toy Show in Dyersville, Iowa. “Until you’ve attended those large shows, you really haven’t experienced what farm toy collecting is all about,” he says. “I’ve learned so much by attending those shows. All of that stirred my desire to have unique custom pieces for my collection. It also got me thinking about building a layout.”

The novice farm toy hobbyist learns through experience but often stumbles a few times before seeking help. Jim soon learned about people who could customize “that special piece.” Others provided input on diorama construction. “It’s been a pleasure meeting people from all over the U.S. and Canada involved in farm toy collecting,” he says. “They’re friendly and willing to help with anything you’re trying to do.”

Winner at the National

Jim exhibited the winning 1:16 scale diorama at the 2012 National Farm Toy Show in Dyersville. His highly detailed display featured a Massey Ferguson dealer’s inventory reduction sale. After helping a friend with his dioramas at the national show, Jim decided to get involved and built his first diorama in 2010. Eventually, he hit on the idea of a 1:16 scale display and he knew just what he’d put in it. “My farm toy tractor collection focused on Massey Ferguson,” Jim says. “It was a natural to use those tractors and implements for my 2012 diorama.”

Jim wanted the diorama to be realistic, complete with animation. He cut an oval track in the parking lot in front of the dealer showroom. The track allowed operation of a chain-driven Rhino ATV that transported the auctioneer. An auction recording was played as the auctioneer moved along, selling each piece of equipment. “We added a lot of detail throughout the entire layout,” Jim says, “including the dealer showroom and a mechanic’s bay in the service center.” The diorama includes 51 lifelike figures; several are hand-painted.

Finding the Black 860

The most unique gem in Jim’s Massey replica display is a 1:16 scale Massey Ferguson Black 860 combine. The original combine was built to commemorate the 1983 launch of a new line of Massey Ferguson combines. The combine was painted black to signify past company failures and carried a logo that symbolized the phoenix rising from the ashes. Built in Canada for promotional purposes, the one-of-a-kind full-size combine was used for demonstrations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Over time it was believed to have been sold to a farmer in the Midwest and then to have been scrapped. Jim decided to add a special version of the Black 860 to his collection. In November 2010, he asked Dan Kiley, Anamosa, Iowa, to customize a Black 860. After Dan completed the project, he made it part of his display at the 2011 National Farm Toy Show. Since then the piece has been on loan to the National Farm Toy Museum in Dyersville, where it remains on display.

At the next year’s National Farm Toy Show, Jim incorporated the Black 860 into his diorama. During the show, a Kansas man stopped by for a look. When he spotted the Black 860, Duane Thompson, Atchison, Kan., pointed and said, “My dad owns that combine.” Duane explained that his father had purchased the combine 12 years earlier and used it regularly on his farm in Kansas.

Memories of boyhood on the farm

Growing up on the farm leaves indelible impressions. Jim’s family had a Ferguson Model 30. “I was probably 4 or 5 years old when I drove a tractor for the first time,” Jim recalls. “Most farm kids back then learned to drive at an early age. It helped a kid develop responsibility early in life.

“Back then, our corn was husked by hand and pitched in piles on the ground for later pickup,” he says. “Dad had me drive the old Ferguson with a trailer hitched behind. The men walked alongside as they picked up the husked corn from the piles and pitched the ears into the trailer. Dad helped me turn into the next row when we reached the end of the field. My feet didn’t reach the pedals, so if there was ever a problem, I knew how to turn off the ignition.”

When Jim and his brother were toddlers and their parents were busy during planting and harvest, the boys stayed with their grandmother. “We liked helping her bake pies because she saved leftover dough for us to play with,” he recalls. “The tires on the John Deere 60 made neat tracks in the dough. Grandmother liked the dough with the tread marks so she baked pies with that dough. Eventually the dough built up and hardened between the front tires, but that was resolved when I restored the tractor.”

Almost better than new

Jim enjoys turning the clock back on old toys and models. “As I hunt for old farm toys, I like finding a piece with character that may be crusty, dirty, bent or broke that I can turn back into something new and shiny,” he says. “When I’ve completed the restoration, anybody would be pleased to put it on display.”

Jim appreciates today’s highly detailed models. “The finer detailing has made them more acceptable by collectors,” he says. “They’re not just play toys for kids anymore. Fortunately, the builders have made versions suitable for play.” But he worries that shift from toy to collectible may be peeling young people out of the hobby. “At a recent farm toy sale, I noted only one kid there and he was buying older toys,” Jim says. “As the older collectors pass on, there seem to be fewer younger ones replacing them.” FC

Of all the farm toys, from barns to cows, windmills to machinery, it's the old toy tractors that are among the most popular collectibles. Whether you grew up on a farm or just wish you did, toy tractors represent the ingenuity and craftsmanship of American rural life.

Tractors Go From Farmland to Toyland

Until the late 19th century, farming was based on physical strength: plows were drawn by horses, mules, and oxen, and guided by humans who walked or rode behind the animals. Steam and gas powered engines appeared in the 1869s and 1870s, and by the 1880s, tractors. The word "tractor" itself is a bit of a mystery. It was used as early as 1890 by George Edwards, who patented a steam-driven farm vehicle, which gained traction by the motor's power (thus, "tract-or").

Henry Ford believed that improved agricultural equipment would advance civilization so by 1917, Ford and his son had opened the Fordson factory to produce the Fordson Model F gas-powered tractor. The popularity of the machine was enormous and soon, tractors were common farm machinery.

It wasn't long after the invention of a full-size tractor that companies began to pay attention to the possibilities offered by farm-related toys. After all, in 1900 the US labor force was composed of nearly 40% agricultural workers and farmers, and millions of children were fascinated by the big, noisy farm machines.

Manufacturers and Companies

Arcade Manufacturing Company was one of the first companies to produce toy tractors. Based in Freeport, IL and founded in 1885, the company started out producing home goods, like coffee grinders, but by 1921 they introduced a toy car and not long after, perhaps the first commercially made toy tractor, the Fordson. One of the fun mysteries of this toy is whether the man depicted driving the tractor is Henry Ford! Arcade proved that Americans would pay more for a farm toy, and other companies soon followed. (A detailed history of Arcade Toys, including tractors, was written by Al Aune.)

Other major toy tractor manufacturers included:

  • Wilkins Toy Company, located in Keene, NH. According to Bill Vossler in his book, Toy Farm Tractors, some of the earliest farm toys in the tractor family were produced there around 1886. They were horse-drawn vehicles (not self-powered tractors), but the cast iron toys were ancestors of all toy tractors and were offered by Montgomery Ward and Sears, Roebuck and Company catalogs.
  • Hubley Company was founded in 1894 in Lancaster, PA. The company made molded metal toys that were painted and detailed at the company foundry. By the 1940s, Hubley was the world's largest producer of cast iron toys.
  • Dent Hardware Company was founded in 1898, and produced cast iron and die-cast aluminum toys, including farm tractors. The company is still in business but manufactures hinges and other utilitarian items.
  • Ertl was founded in Iowa by Frederick Ertl in 1945 when he began to mold tractors in his home shop while waiting out a strike at his factory job. By 1952, the Ertl company was producing John Deere toy tractors, and through the years has made die cast toys for automobile, film, and other companies.

Toy Tractors on the Assembly Line

While many companies make toy tractors, the production methods tend to fall into a few areas:

  • Cast iron toys were formed in carefully carved master molds, so cast iron tractors have lots of detail, with some hand finishing. Cheap modern reproductions can lack the fine details and are rarely carefully painted.
  • Die casting was accomplished by forcing a metal alloy into a mold of the toy. Die cast items are generally lighter than cast iron, and once you see an early cast iron piece next to an early alloy tractor, the differences are obvious. Some companies reissued older toys as die cast products and these can be difficult to spot if manufactured by companies like Hubley or Arcade. Toy tractors made in Taiwan are often poorly assembled and have little detail.
  • Tin toys had designs printed on a metal sheet using a lithography process, and details were sometimes added by skilled finishers. The toys were then folded into shape and finished. Inexpensive toy tractors have tabs holding the sections together.

Other materials used included lead, wood, plastic, rubber, and aluminum.

Tractor Companies

Virtually every tractor company is represented by an antique (100+ years old) or vintage (50 to 100 years old) toy, including:

Many smaller firms are now forgotten, but the website TractorData contains listings of more than 230 tractor companies and is a great resource for identifying toy tractor models.

The Modern Toy Tractor

By the 1970s, the toy tractor field had exploded into a popular area of collecting and remains so with events, magazines, and fairs dedicated to the toys. Standard model sizes are 1/16 and 1/64 (although tractors can be found in 1/8, /125, 1/32, 1/50, as well as other sizes), which means that 1 inch on the toy tractor equals 16", 32", 64", etc. on the full-size tractor.

Vintage and modern toy tractors are classified into four major categories:

  • Limited edition toy tractors are made in small quantities, usually as a onetime production or with a specific number of pieces. However, "limited" can mean 25 pieces or 250 pieces. It depends on the manufacturer.
  • A shelf model toy tractor is kept in production over the years. This makes the toys generally less valuable than a limited edition tractor.
  • Precision toy tractors are very detailed, including parts like detailed engines, upholstered cabs, and working windows. These miniature tractors are usually desired by serious collectors, and new versions allow the owner to display the toy without removing it from its original packaging.
  • Pedal tractors are large toy tractors made for children to ride.

Determining Rarity and Value

Since there are thousands of toy tractors for sale along with many new collector sets, determining rarity and value can be confusing. Recent sale prices can be checked on sites like WorthPoint (a subscription value site) or eBay, or you can begin with basic price guides and then move on to specialty guides. Experts can always be consulted in person at local antique stores or online via websites like LoveToKnow's What's It Worth? community.

Book Guides

Copies of guides specific to toy manufacturer, like Ertl Toy Tractors by Patrick Ertl and Catherine Lee Phillips, general books on collecting farm toys, like Standard Catalog of Farm Toys by Karen O'Brien, and guides to particular tractor companies, like John Deere Collectibles by Brenda Kruse. Locate the books through various book stores and resellers, as many may not be currently in print.

Examples of Rare Tractor Toys

Antique toy tractors (100+ years) don't always bring the highest prices, and sometimes vintage or recent releases can be just as costly as a very old piece: according to Farm Collector, the following antique and vintage tractors are highly sought after, as indicated by realized prices (per WorthPoint via their subscription section):

  • John Deere 430 by Ertl, was an early toy made by this classic company, and values for one new in the original box may reach above $2,000. A John Deere 630 with a harrow sold for $625.
  • Allis-Chalmers by Arcade, 1938 with an original box is rare and has brought $1,800 at auction.
  • Arcade's Farmall Cultivision A Tractor in the original box sold for $1,800.
  • Among the earliest tractors produced as toys, a rare circa 1900 brass and iron steam toy traction engine tractor sold for $2,800.
  • Among the extremely rare, an early 1/6 scale tractor (circa 1890) live steam traction engine sold in 2009 for $15,850. While not a toy, this piece indicates the high values that collectors pay for related toy tractor items.

What to Look for When Purchasing

Although people of all ages collect toy tractors, many tractors are purchased for display, not as toys. Prices range from $50 into the thousands, but good collectible examples can cost well under $200 when sold. The best way to ensure that you are purchasing what you want is to buy from a dealer who will back the sale. Toy tractors are big business and most dealers are honest, know their stock, will guarantee your purchase, and answer your questions. In the meantime, some basics to consider include:

  • Scarcity can impact the value of a toy tractor, with examples from as early as the 1940s bringing thousands of dollars, like this John Deere A diecast model, made in that decade.
  • Condition is based on the tractor's original issue form, so you will need to know what the original looked like before you can judge a reproduction. You can see many new and old toys at sites like The National Farm Toy Museum, and their collector's corner page shows a number of new reproductions, as well as vintage collectibles. For older pieces, web searches can turn up pieces in museums or individual collections. Take every chance to visit shows, ask questions, and examine original toys in person.
  • When evaluating an antique or vintage tractor, consider the following: Is the paint new, scratched, chipped, worn off in places, or completely missing? Are all the pieces intact, including tires and steering wheels? Have pieces been repainted (check color, paint finish, brush marks)? If metal, is there any rust, or worn sections, and are the details clear? Is there paint inside the molded piece? Modern reproductions of older piece generally have the paint sprayed on the outside, while the originals have some paint on the interior, according to collector and writer Bill Vossler in Farm Collector.
  • Some older cast iron toy tractors, like the Fordson, have been reproduced and those reproductions can be mistaken for the originals by both seller and buyer, notes Vossler. There are a few points you can watch for to avoid a costly mistake. Newer pieces often have thin paint, and few painted details. Reproductions are generally smaller than the original due to newer molding and production techniques. "Fins" - untrimmed corners of metal - and loose joints can indicate a reproduction rather than an original, antique or vintage toy tractor.
  • The more recent diecast reproductions, including those by Ertl and other manufacturers, are known for their quality and details, which are very obvious when placed next to an inexpensive reproduction.

Purchasing Parts and Kits

If you need to do repairs on antique or vintage toy tractors (or build your own), you can locate materials and parts at the following companies:

  • Bosson Implements provides models, toys, and kits for tractor and farm implement collectors.
  • MiniSteam offers kits, models and replacement parts for toy steam traction engines (early tractors).

Additionally, Toy Tractor Show provides links to many dealers, and sources for toy tractor repairs and purchases; they also list toy tractor shows across the US where you can find vintage and rare toy tractors for sale. They may also have kits available at their various shows - look for an upcoming one scheduled for your area soon.

Collecting Antique and Vintage Toy Tractors

If you love farming, history, and technology then collecting toy tractors may be the perfect hobby for you. It doesn't take long to fall in love with these miniature works of craftsmanship and to appreciate having a farm tractor on your shelf.
