Old Iron Garden Tractors

The Trojek Family Antique Garden Tractor Shed

Welcome to the Trojek family's antique and vintage garden tractor shed.  We are old iron garden tractor enthusiasts whose goal it is to enjoy, to preserve and to promote these amazing pieces of history and technology.  We are primarily interested in garden tractors from the mid-1960s and earlier, particularly the oddball brands that are long out of business.

On this site you will find many pictures of past and present garden tractors in our collection, information on some lesser known Canadian brands, antique garden tractor paraphernalia, and pictures of the collections of some of our friends and acquaintances.

We are always looking for antique garden tractors to add to our collection.  If you have something that you would like to sell that you think we may be interested in, or know someone who has something that you think we may be interested in, please contact us.  Some brands that we are looking for are Shaw, Gard'n Mast'r, Tiger, Panzer, Gibson, Mighty Mite, Jaques Frazer, Bantam, Haney, Ottawa Mule Team, Mayrath, Quaker Mule, Atomic Babe, etc.  There were a whole lot of brands between the 1930s and the 1960s, so this is only a short, partial list.  If you are wondering, just ask.

Feel free to contact us for anything and everything antique garden tractor related.  We'll try to help in any way we can.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy the site!

 

This page is devoted to literature that I come across that may not be specifically garden tractor related, but is interesting nevertheless.  Enjoy.

Here are two old tractor manuals.  The first is a Rumely Oil Pull tractor manual. It is the Instruction for Operating manual, for the 16-30.  The second manual is an Eagle tractor manual, Book of Instructions.  Click on the image to view the entire PDF document.

Here is an Otaco catalogue from 1950.  Otaco was a company in Orillia, Ontario, that sold many farm-related items.  I divided it up into different section.  Just click on the image to view the PDF document for that section.  Thanks to Mike Unwin.
