Cotton producer David Cochran did what any farmer with welding experience would do when his old tank rack didn't fit his new John Deere tractor. "In 1994, John Deere had just come out with its 8000 Series tractors, which had a componentized frame," explained Cochran, whose family farm raises cotton, rice, soybean and corn, and runs a gin near Avon. The tank racks are formed out of quarter-inch sheet metal plating. "Almost everyone else uses some kind of square tubing that sticks straight out the side," Cochran said. The racks are designed to allow plenty of service access to the tractor.
