Have Fun With Pedal Tractors

If there's a young person in your life who loves vehicles, consider getting him or her a pedal tractor. These are fun toys that kids can interact with while getting exercise. eBay has affordable new and used pedal tractors for sale.

What materials are pedal tractors made out of?

The industry has changed over the decades, so antique pedal tractors for sale are likely to be made out of different materials from newer models. In general, new and vintage pedal tractors for sale are made with one or a combination of the following:

  • Iron - Cast iron was a common material in certain types of toys in the early 1900s, so you'll likely find many cast iron antique pedal tractors on eBay. Cast iron is strong and durable.
  • Steel - This metal is another strong and relatively rigid material. Steel can be heavy, which can be a benefit in terms of durability for a toy like an affordable pedal tractor.
  • Aluminum - Aluminum is an affordable material that has been used in some toy tractors. Aluminum is lightweight, so small kids might have an easier time pushing aluminum pedal tractors than heavier ones.
  • Plastic - Newer pedal tractors are often made out of plastic. Plastic pedal tractors can be some of the cheaper ones available, especially if they are used. Plastic requires minimal maintenance.
New or used pedal tractor features

As you shop for a pedal tractor for sale, you'll see that there is a wide variety of models. These features could be included in some of them:

  • Seat back - Children can get comfortable if a seat back is provided. A seat back also helps kids stay in place and not slip off the back.
  • Durable tires - If you plan on using your pedal tractor outdoors, it's a good idea to get one with wide tires that have some tread to them. This helps the tractor navigate over uneven surfaces.
  • Coupling device - Having a coupling device would come in handy if you ever plan on hooking up accessories, like a front loader, hay wagon, or trailer.
  • Realistic details - Many tractors come with details that look just like the real thing. For example, you can get a miniature version of a Farmall M or a Massey Ferguson tractor.
  • Adjustable seat - If children of different sizes want to use a pedal tractor, it's important to have an adjustable seat to accommodate them.
