Information search

I sent an email to Agri-Fab to see if they had information about Workbird tractors or if they had any old-timers around that would know anything about the tractors. Here is the email and response:

Hello, I have been doing some research on an old tractor I am restoring and have been led to Agri-Fab. The tractor was manufactured in 1965 and is called a Work-Bird. It was made by George Garden Tools which was bought by a few companies then by MTD which shut the plant down. As I understand it, the plants' workers and managers formed a new company which is the current Agri-Fab. I am looking for any old timers that might still be around the company or area that would have any information on Work Bird tractors.
Thank you in advance,
Matthew Wente


You are correct, this used to be George Garden Tools many years ago, but I’m afraid there is no one here now that could help you. There was a gentleman that worked for George Garden Tools that kept up with parts for quite some time after the company went out of business, but he passed away several years ago. Agri-Fab itself has never had anything to do with tractors, only lawn & garden equipment that can be attached to tractors. All of the original owners of Agri-Fab who would have had anything to do with George Garden Tools have retired in the last 10 years. I’m sorry that we couldn’t help you more.
