Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the early 1920s, John Deere tractors have been cultivating, plowing, and seeding fields across America--and across the globe. American agricultural and mechanical know-how at its finest, these tractors have more than lived up to the company motto "Nothing Runs Like a Deere," in the process becoming the most beloved machines among farmers.

A celebration of this icon of American farming, this book features brilliantly detailed photographs of all the most popular and powerful John Deere tractors, along with a wealth of information about these marvels of machinery. The book contains everything a loyal fan of John Deere could hope to find, from curious tidbits to historical facts and horsepower statistics, from Nebraska test results to implement information reaching from the early 1920s up to the present.

John Deere Tractors includes samples of the company's early advertising and brochures, historical photos of these great tractors at work, and a sampling of the newest technologies being used on these machines.
