Using an old tractor for yard art is a common cliche. How many of you actually do it? Do you sink the rims in the ground and plant Morning Glory vines around it? 

 

How about showing us your photos?

Only time I do yard art is when they break down in the middle of the yard. Usually it's at the far end of the yard.

I don't use tractors as yard art, I have heard of too many running tractors that get water in the engine :wallbanging:

Have an old wood frame wagon gear with a 2 row MM corn planter on top. Have another wood wagon gear in the shed I would like to sell.  Had to replace the reach in that one.

At first I thought you were from Maine. I've seen places up there that have every vehicle and appliance they ever owned scattered about the yard.

I use a running unstyled Allis Chalmers WC for (front) yard art.  I do keep the exhaust covered and take it for a spin every so often to keep it in shape.  I'll have to remember to snap a pic when I'm outside again.  It's the one sitting behind my 'bota in my avatar.

I don’t have any yard art tractors, but I did put one of my parts tractors outside with lights on it for Christmas. I have thought about putting a junk tractor at the bottom of our driveway, but my parents don’t like that idea.
