Tractor Pics from Norway

December 13, 2016

Machinery Pete is about 3/4 Norwegian.

MP's mom, Carol Peterson, of Benson, MN is 100% Norwegian. Her family generations back came from the Bergen coastal area of Norway. I've never been to Norway. Hope to go some day soon. On Saturday, via our Machinery Pete Facebook page ( I became connected with a 17-year old farmer from Norway, Jorgen L. Here was Jorgen's note to me:

"Hello Pete! I have great respect for your work. I am a 17 years old boy from the countryside of Norway. I have driven a lot of tractors, mostly row-crop John Deeres. I have a big wish to spend my next summer holiday in the U.S. working on a big farm." Best regards, Jørgen L

I asked Jorgen if he could message me a few tractor pics from Norway. He immediately sent me some beauties...take a look:


Snows in Norway just like it does here in Minnesota! Here's Jorgen moving snow with their 2008 John Deere 6430:


Here's Jorgen family's John Deere 7530:


One more for you from Norway:


If any reader is connected in some way with a farm group, business, or organization that could help in Jorgen from Norway's request to come work a large U.S. farm summer of 2017, get in contact with me, Machinery Pete. Email: 800-381-0423.
