Jaswant Singh, the farmer from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh has modified his John Deere tractor, raising its height from 5 feet to 10 feet, according to News 18 Hindi.


Singh had bought the tractor in 2002 to primarily perform tough agricultural operations, but customised it later to reach places where ordinary tractors fail. It has now become a multi-purpose vehicle, which can be used for various tasks such as sowing the fields and carrying large amounts of harvested crops.

In addition, Singh uses his modified tractor to apply manure in sugarcane plantations.

"To get rid of this problem, I have modified the tractor to reach a height of 10 feet  so that it can easily cross ponds or canals enroute to my farm ," News18 Hindi quoted Singh as saying.

The farmer told ETV Bharat that he uses his tractor only in the fields as they are not allowed by the government to be used on roads.
