Antique tractors at auction offer a trip back through time

Norman and Judy Erickson’s farm near Viking was the place to be on Aug. 13, when 74 antique tractors (all but three completely restored) went on the auction block. More than 1,000 people came from across the Prairies and Ontario, with online bidders joining from the U.S. and the United Kingdom for the sale handled by Dunkle Auction Services. A very rare 1938 John Deere “D” with the exhaust manifold and the air intake on the right-hand side (only three are known to exist in the world) sold for $29,000. The smallest John Deere ever made — a seven-horsepower LA model — sold online for $12,000.
