I've met Kurt Smith in person a few years back at an Ohio PD and he's a cool dude .

He brought one of his early half scale tractors to that 2008 plowday .

 

I believe it was his first half scale , and after doing it he found people that were interested in him making them one .

That's how he got started .

Nice looking work. I bet it is expensive to have one made.

Thanks everyone, Jess, it's good to hear from you. I've kind of jumped off of forums unless I see activity on my website from one. That's how I ended up on gardentractortalk.com

 

That picture of the 826 was taken long before I built even the second tractor. We affectionately call the 826 "Trevor," it's the only tractor that I've kept. I hope to build a new one for myself soon though.

 

I do buy my tires from Miller, I call and talk to Ed about what I'm looking for. He always comes up with a solution for me.

 

Yes they do get a little expensive, but I look at it as piece of functional "art." I'm not becoming a millionaire building them, but I am providing a living for my family, and for that I'm very thankful. Oh yea, I'm having an absolute ball making these giant "toys." :)

 

Kurt

Great looking tractors. I always enjoy seeing mini replicas.
