Complete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors : The First 100 Years - Don Macmillan
The Complete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors explores the range of iconic 'green tractors' with which Illinois-based John Deere has become one of the world's most recognizable brands.
The Complete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors features descriptions, photography, and spec charts for farm legends including the kerosene-powered 1918 Waterloo Boy, classic two-cylinder models, and the redesigned New Generation and New Generation II lines.
Part of Motorbooks' Complete Book series, this fact-packed volume takes you through dozens of John Deere farm models, beginning with the 1892 Waterloo Boy and ending with the game-changing New Generation and Generation II lines. With selected text from The Bigger Book of John Deere by late legendary Deere historian Don Macmillan, this book details year-to-year model changes within each series and offers comprehensive specs charts compiled by Deere authority John Dietz.
In addition to the Waterloo Boy, you'll witness the entire 40-plus years of two-cylinder 'Johnny Poppers,' from the 1924 Model D through the 830 Series models in 1960, and the styled tractors of the prewar and postwar years. Also featured heavily are the groundbreaking New Generation tractors launched to much fanfare in 1960 and their successors, the New Generation II lineup with their Sound-Gard cabs. Standard, row-crop, orchard, and even a selection of experimental models…they're all here. In addition, you'll find coverage of John Deere's rich international heritage, with tractors produced in Spain, Germany, and Australia.
Illustrated with incredible color photography and period advertising, The Complete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors is an essential edition for the library of any Deere fanatic. 9780760366066
