Product Description


John Deere is a true American icon - the biggest producer of agricultural machinery in the United States, still bearing the name of its blacksmith founder after more than 160 years, survivor of various financial crises, the first name on American farmers' minds when they think of ordering a new tractor, its distinctive green and yellow colors immediately recognizable throughout the world. Focusing on the company's tractors, this spectacularly illustrated book features all the most important models and series from the famous Waterloo Boy to the present day.Following a brief introduction relating the history of the company and its products, each tractor is described in detail, together with concise specifications outlining engine type and capacity, speeds, gear shifts, pulling power, efficiency, and many more facts so fascinating to true enthusiasts. All of the tractors are depicted in fabulous color photos, frequently at work, and there are also many close-up of details. This is a gigantic volume in keeping with the scale of the John Deere brand name in the world's tractor industry. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poorly executed 26 Dec 2008
By Lester Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Alot of good pictures, alot of issues too. I don't know if I should blame the author, the editor, or the Chinese publisher. Some information is blatantly wrong, I'm not a John Deere expert, but I do know what an unstyled Model A looks like. The pages that were supposed to be about the unstyled A contained pictures of a completely different non-row crop tractor. One model has the same picture twice on opposite pages, but different sizes, this simply isn't acceptable. The modern tractors are almost all European varieties, many having never been available from American Deere dealers. The chapter on the 440 log skidder has specs for a 540E, a model produced nearly 20 years later that is a whole lot bigger. The fact that they are specs from a 540E is pointed out to us, but not the fact that the 2 machines share nothing besides the name on the hood. The pictures show a 440C, a later model. Do a web search for photos of both and it's easy to see. There are some good photos, and some good information, if you know what to believe, and not to believe.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for my Farmer Husband for Valentine's Day 31 Jan 2013
By loving grandma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My husband saw a copy of this book during a silent auction at a recent meeting and bid on it, but didn't get the bid. I got online and found it for him so ordered it as a surprise for Valentine's Day. Thanks for the quick delivery. It was packaged very well so that it wouldn't be damaged during shipping. He likes all things farm related so this will be a great gift. Thank you.
