Workshop news Duke of Deere Pulling Team
The John Deere received a new homemade steel wedge frame with a new smaller homemade steel rollcage, a homemade hydraulic power steering, new constructed wheelie bars, a new hitch and a John Deere 4040S sheet metal hood. The original 4040S hood and the 4040S fenders come from the old Duke of Deere Tractor. Also the rearend, the gearbox and the clutch bell housing were took over of the old ride. The rearend comes from a JD 4040S and has original brakes and brake discs, a needle bearing differential and a original ring and pinion gear. The Duke of Deere Team will use on their new ride a set of cut Michelin XM 108 tires on steel rims.
The 3 speed gearbox for the John Deere is a original cast iron housing with special built gears and shafts by Ron Perry from the USA. The original bell housing was machined and a homemade steel liner was fitted into the housing. The guys can run without the shatter blankets around bell housing after those changes. The centrifugal clutch with a size of 11´´ inch and 4 discs was built by Freakshow Performance in Germany.
Janosch and his Team will compete in the German Championship this year. The maiden voyage of the new Duke of Deere is planned for 28th of April 2018, at the German Championship opener in Füchtorf.
