Age Grade 5+ Diecast This a replica of the John Deere 4020 designed by Chip Foose that was given away by Deere and Company on June 30, 2010 The 4020 Chip worked on spent most of the past 40 years hard at work. And with the kind of wear and tear that can add up over the years--from a slipping clutch to worn lines and seals-even a tractor as durable as the 4020 was in need of some maintenance. The tractor was inspected from top to bottom. Ultimately, the list of repairs included: * A new fuel system, including injectors, pump and lines * New seals and lines throughout the tractor * An entire new clutch assembly, including housing, * Replacing the knuckle assembly, tie rods and ball joints on adjustable front axle Chip Foose Known for his clean designs and sophisticated style, Chip Foose is a living legend in the automotive industry.
