Tractor Weathervane – Silhouette Style

Tractor Weather Vane Silhouette


Our Tractor weathervane was originally commissioned as a Christmas gift by a wife for her husband who is a big Tractor Pulling aficionado. It is crafted in the silhouette style and consists of two layers of copper soldered together for strength. We used optional nickel silver and palladium leaf to create the silver colored sections. It was important to match the markings on his custom built tractor so she snuck out into the garage,  surreptitiously took photos, and emailed them to us. We used optional gold leaf to replicate the flames on the tractor’s side and the logo on the arrow’s fletching. The weathervane now sits atop their new two-car garage.

Silhouette vanes range from basic to highly detailed. They can also include a horizontal tube below the wheels to represent the ground or we can add a half arrow tip and fletching as was done here, to indicate wind direction. Since each of our weathervanes is built to individual order, we are happy to personalize your weather vane to your specifications.

For the same price you may order our silhouette tractor with driver as seen at right. This piece was originally designed for the Los Altos History Museum here in California. Please give us a call if you have an idea for a personalized tractor weathervane.

Tractor with Driver

We are often able to reduce the design fee for our more mechanical weathervane commissions if detailed schematic drawings are available. Also helpful, are detailed photos of the actual vehicle including photos of insignia, detailing, etc. If scaled down models are available, we often find them helpful guides during the construction process.

Truck and Tractor pulling, also known as power pulling, is a motorsport competition which requires modified tractors to pull a heavy sledge (sled) along a 35 ft wide and 300 plus feet track, with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sledge farthest. Popular in  America, Europe (especially in the Netherlands), Australia and Brazil, Tractor Pulling is known as the world’s most powerful motorsport, due to the multi-engine modified tractor pullers.
