The show was on RFD TV today at 12:30 p.m. and it featured eight different tractors.  The show started by talking to a collector named Steve Johnson who owned somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 garden tractors not counting some of his other parts tractors.  The tractor they featured of his on the show was a David Bradley Tri-Trac, it was a very neat looking three wheeled machine.  Next was a Pennsylvania Panzer 1110 that was slightly modified by the owner who recreated all of the sheet metal parts with stainless steel. Then there was a Shaw Du-All R7 that was a rare tractor and the owner was really interesting to listen to as he talked about Shaw's history.  The fourth tractor featured on the show was a 1972 Case 442 Black Knight Demonstrator that was used by the dealers to demonstrate certain models.  The 442 had a very interesting black and gold paint scheme.  That same collector also owned a beautiful looking red and white Colt 2712.  Another collector owned a B-1 Allis that had dual wheels and a tiller on the back.  The next garden tractor was cool looking little Jaques Mighty Mite 4T it was red and yellow and the owner talked about how he had admired the little tractor for years and he finally got the opportunity to buy it.  Last but not least was a Bush Hog D-4 10 that was in better than new shape out of the state of Florida.

Sounds like a nice show. We don't have cable so won't see that show. It seems that a lot of people are starting to notice the older GT's and starting to collect them or at least take an interest.

I seen that about a week ago! Good episode to watch. I don't remember which tractor it was but it was a very decent size garden tractor. Very cool!

Keep hearing about RFD shows, but my cable doesn't seem to have it on the Basic Digital package I guess. I'm on Comcast. Not sure if even offered on other packages?  Anyone have Comcast and get it?   Seems to be on Dish I've seen advertised.

If it is available it your area, which is not for sure, it would be available if you added the Sports and Entertainment package.

I haven't seen RFD TV in years - we used to get it on our Directv system - but Classic Tractor Fever was one of my most favorite shows. 

 

We have Comcast and I haven't seen it listed anywhere.

You can watch them online, I believe, but they require you to give your CC# for a fee of some sort.

That episode of the garden tractors has been airing on and off for a while on RFD, nice looking stuff,,, I do enjoy Classic Tractor Fever, unfortunate a lot of cable systems don't carry RFD anymore ......
