This tractor was in the sale lineup at the Mecum Auction in Davenport, IA, back in November of 2016.

We started the project of this 4520 early fall of 2016....this is what we started with

We start the restoration by taking the tractor down to the torque tube

We use the highest quality of paint. At Olson Tractor and Restoration, we want your restored product to look better than what it looked like when it came off the assembly line.

From our high quality paint booth, the tractor comes back out to the assembly floor.

The re-assembly is tedious. We are very careful how we put the items back on the tractor as we don't want to damage any of the new paint.

The finished project

We a very particular when it comes to every step of the restoration project. We will fix any repairs, which needs to be done, as we are doing your restoration.

We want this paint job to be PERFECT!

At Olson Tractor and Restoration, we want you to be very satisfied with our jobs

Your satisfaction is our goal.

We want you to be happy, as you're our future.

The first week of November 2016, our customer came to get his restoration which was to be sold at the Mecum Auction in Davenport, IA.


Below is what we started out with...


We start the teardown

We do a COMPLETE teardown!

Then the primer is applied

Our paint booth helps make a professional paint job

Then comes the paint!

Our paint codes, schemes, and decals match just as it was direct from the factory

Your finished tractor!

Our final product is closely inspected

You will not get your project back until we are satisfied with our workmanship!

We are very fussy when it comes to the results of any restoration!

Any restoration will not be "good enough" when the job is complete

It has to be PEFECT when you pay for your restored project!

Another Restoration - Farmall Super MTA

 We stripped the tractor chassis as far as you can go. It is important to us, we do not paint over grease or dirt of any sort!

At this point this, it doesn't look like much...PERFECT!

At Olson Tractor, we use the best primers and finishes to give that "better than showroom" finish!

Bring on the paint!

The job is not easy. It is a very tedious challenge to be sure there are no runs and so the paint job is perfect

We try our best to be sure your restoration is as close to factory original as possible.

You tractor or equipment can look as good as this if you bring it in to our shop.

Don't let an amateur try to save you money, it will only cost you more in the end.

Let the professionals do the job the right way the first time.

You will be much happier!!


 November 12, 2014, we finished

Josh Kerns's John Deere B


Along with my Allis-Chalmers U and to the right is the McNamara family's Minneapolis Moline Model R

Here is what it looked like when they brought the "R" in

 Then we take it apart, fix any oil leaks, fixing any repairs needs and prepare it for paint

I like to keep our customers updated as their project advances.


The final product....

Olson Tractor is very fussy when it come to our restorations!

Our restorations will look better than when your tractor was "brand" new. Our restorations will be done with economy in mind without making the restoration look cheap.

We take great pride in the quality of our work!
