The Sixty achieved great success in every field of endeavor it entered, such as agriculture, mining, logging, and construction. The gasoline powered Sixty was produced throughout the 1920s and up to 1932.
Our base version of the tractor (without winch or dozer blade or ripper attachments) finds itself at home on the farm or in the woods or on top of a flatcar.
What you get: When you order a tractor Shapeways prints it and mails it directly to you. The tractor arrives unpainted and you finish it off however you would like. You can read the material descriptions here on Shapeways to get a better feel for the plastic and paint options, but we will share our experiences with cleaning and painting here so you know what to expect. There are also many threads on the internet with people sharing painting and cleaning tips. Be aware, until you paint the tractor it is hard to see the details, they don't show well on the clear plastic. Painting brings it alive, so don't fret when you first pull the tractor out of the box.
Shapeways prints the tractors with a wax support base material. After printing they melt the wax in an oven and then clean the tractor with hot oil and then hot water. The tractor you receive will usually need some further cleaning before you paint it. You can usually clean it by hand by gently immersing and 'swishing' it in hot water and dish soap, but you may not get all the residue off. A hand cleaning is usually good enough for painting, but if you want the best prep for your painting you may want to do a little more. We use an ultrasonic cleaner and hot water and find we get very good results. Others use chemical cleaners but we have found that chemicals aren't a necessity.
