Enter Shop Hacks Contest

Have you ever improvised a repair, fashioned a homemade tool, or created a shop get-by or make-do? Then send us that idea to qualify for a massive $10,000 package of tools being offered by John Deere in the Shop Hacks: Stock the Shop Contest.

We are seeking innovations that make repairing and maintaining equipment easier, faster, and safer. These creations can be large, such as a homemade caddy that cradles tractor duals when they are being removed, or small, such as a power tool cord storage idea.
