Unless stated otherwise in the item description, all pedal tractors and trailers come unassembled in the original box.
Due to the size of the pedal tractors they must be shipped alone. If you want additional items please create a seperate order, or call to place your order to insure that the correct shipping charges have been paid.
We do not ship pedal tractors outside of the continental US due to the high cost. As an example the dimensional weight charges to ship a pedal tractor to Europe are over $310.
FYI - Pedal tractors produced by Scale Models are manufactured in the USA.
Pedal Tractors & Trailers
Small model toy tractors have been on the market since the 1920's but pedal tractors were not produced until the late 1940's. The first pedal tractor, a John Deere Model A was produced by Eska in 1949. It is prized by collectors and can bring a high price in good condition. Ertl came out with pedal tractors shortly after Eska and continues to produce them today. Scale Models has also manufactured pedal tractors since the 1980's in their U.S. based plant.
The selection of pedal tractors is not as great as the smaller model tractors. AgFarmToys.com generally has fifteen to thirty different models in stock depending on availability. There are new models produced most years with the John Deere and Case IH brands. Other brands vary depending on what a manufacturer chooses to produce.
Since the 1970's pedal tractors have enjoyed renewed popularity mostly due to their collectability. Today approximately sixty percent of all pedal tractors are sold to collectors. The other forty percent are sold for use by children. Collecting and use of these mini tractors as riding toys are not mutually exclusive. Kids can enjoy riding them and the value will still increase over time if they are not abused.
Kids love pedal tractors, in part because they are much like the real thing. Children ages three to seven are the perfect age to enjoy these special toy tractors.
One popular event at many county fairs is the kiddie tractor pull. These pulls are just like tractor pulls for adults but with pedal tractors they operate under kid power only.
