Personal Creations are Always More Special

The beauty of 3D puzzles from UGEARS is they operate using sophisticated mechanisms, but don’t use any electronic items. This model of a Tractor is a nod to its predecessors belonging to a bygone era.

  • The model is operated using a rubber band motor – no need for an electric power source. Hand tools or glue isn’t required either!
  • Engine works rhythmically and you can see the pistons moving.
  • Transmission switch in the form a small gear lever offers triple control modes – Park, Drive, and Sport. The Drive mode has a speed of 5cm per second, while the Sport feature makes the Tractor run quite fast. Spin the big wheel during Park mode to get started.
  • Maximum speed that it can cover is around 80cm at a leisurely pace.
  • Observe the exceptional detailing – one glance at the all wheel drive and you can get a fair idea about the workmanship.
  • Step-by-step instruction manual is provided – just refer to the booklet, remove the ready-made parts from the board and begin assembling.
  • All parts are manufactured with premium grade plywood, and thus resistant to corrosive deposits and rust.
  • Lastly, you can showcase your creation by displaying it on a shelf or on top of a cabinet in your dining area or living room.

 Touted as a mechanical miracle, this project has earned a massive fan following and become quite successful on Kickstarter. If you are worried about your child spending hours in front of the TV or playing video games, gift them with the Tractor mechanical model kit – rest assured they will be hooked! Thus their free time will be spent engaging in a constructive activity that subtly encourages mental prowess in kids. Get ready to operate a mini-firm in your home – have you placed the order yet?

Models assembly tips


  • If you hold the board with its front side directed to you, it is better to remove the parts by pulling them. In this case, if a burr is pulled together with a part, it will make a pit in the board, not in the part. The best solution is to incise the hangers with a knife;
  • If you have difficulties in inserting a toothpick in the assembled gearwheel, rub the toothpick with a candle;
  • You may also lubricate all the projecting axes of the gearwheels before installing them on the frame. In this case the friction during rotation will be minimal;
  • However, do not lubricate the parts of pendulum connection with a candle – two projecting sticks in the tractor or timer. In this case the pendulum will not swing but skid;
  • Try to remove big burrs on the gearwheels, if any. The motion of some models is very delicate, and they may hinder it;
  •  If any gearwheel creaks or squeaks, lubricate it with a regular candle, paraffin or wax. If the plywood edge is too resinous and some teeth tend to seize, which happens quite rarely, lubricate the gearwheel in the same manner;
