PowerPoint Presentation: An Expanded Look at Those Old John Deere Farm Tractors with the Two-Cylinder Engines! A Lyle V. Johnson Production February 10, 2014 PowerPoint Presentation: Introduction This slide show is an expanded version of a similar John Deere Tractor show which I prepared in 2012, and later revised on June 26, 2013. Those earlier versions were both entitled “Remember Those Old John Deere Farm Tractors with the Two-Cylinder Engines?” This is an update of those previous versions. Also, this presentation includes more detail about Deere & Company, and its many models of those two-cylinder engine farm tractors which were built up until 1960. By Lyle V. Johnson February 10, 2014 PowerPoint Presentation: First, let us begin with a few places worth a visit, especially if you are a John Deere Fan! PowerPoint Presentation: John Deere Collectors Center, Moline, Illinois. PowerPoint Presentation: The John Deere Pavillion, Moline, Illinois. PowerPoint Presentation: Items on display at the John Deere Pavillion. PowerPoint Presentation: Old Tractors on display at the John Deere Pavillion. PowerPoint Presentation: John Deere World Headquarters, Moline, Illinois. PowerPoint Presentation: A closer look at John Deere's World Headquarters, Moline, Illinois. PowerPoint Presentation:  Yes. Deere & Company opens the front door of its World Headquarters for anyone to visit! A display area is available there where you can view old John Deere farm machinery as well as some of the new. After a short preview of the Headquarters display area, we will begin our review about those old John Deere Farm Tractors with the two-cylinder engines! PowerPoint Presentation: Visitors touring John Deere World Headquarters in Moline, Illinois! PowerPoint Presentation: John Deere's First Tractor I n 1914, Deere & Company directed one of its engineers, Joseph Dain Sr., to design and produce the company's first farm tractor. The resulting all wheel drive tractor was often referred to as the "Dain Tractor". The first prototype was ready in 1915 and testing began with a Waukesha engine. That first Dain tractor was found to be underpowered. In 1917, a McVicker engine replaced the Waukesha engine and the tractor was ready for production. Deere ordered 100 tractors be produced by the end of 1917. By the time that the final “Dain” tractors were built in 1919, Deere & Company had already purchased the Waterloo Gasoline Tractor Company. Although the “Dain” Tractor had several features that were ahead of its time, including a shift-on-the-move transmission, that tractor was twice as expensive to built as is was for Deere & Company to continue production of the Waterloo Boy. That ended the production of the Dain Tractor by Deere & Company. PowerPoint Presentation: John Deere's First Tractor - “The Dain Tractor”. (1918 – 1919) No. Built: 100. Engine: 6.3L 4-Cyl McVicker all fuel engine. Horsepower: 12 Drawbar and 24 Belt. Weight: 4,000 lbs. Cost: $1,000 in 1919. PowerPoint Presentation:  The Waterloo Gasoline Engine Company had built several Waterloo Boy Tractors before being acquired by Deere & Company in 1918. Two Waterloo Boy Model L Tractors were built in 1914. 9,310 Waterloo Boy Model R Tractors were built from 1914 to 1917. Deere & Company continued the production of 21,392 Waterloo Boy Model N tractors from 1917 to 1924. In 1923, Deere & Company introduced its John Deere Model D Tractor which continued in production for 30 years thereafter up to 1953. The Early Years Leading Up to Farm Tractor Production by Deere & Company! PowerPoint Presentation: Waterloo Boy Model L Tractor. (2 Built in 1914). Engine: 5.5L 2-Cyl gasoline engine. PowerPoint Presentation: Waterloo Boy Model R Tractor. (1914 – 1917) 9,310 Built. Cost: $850 in 1917. PowerPoint Presentation: Waterloo Boy Model N Tractor. 1917 – 1924. 21,392 Built. Cost: $1,050 in 1921. Engine: 7.6L 2-Cyl Kerosene Engine. Plows: 3-14”. HP: 15 Drawbar and 25 Belt. PowerPoint Presentation: A 1920 Waterloo Boy Model N Tractor PowerPoint Presentation: The JD Model D tractor replaced the Waterloo Boy Tractor in 1923, which started the “lettered series” of John Deere Farm Tractors!

Cost: $1,000 in 1924 and $2,124 in 1953. PowerPoint Presentation:  T his 1923 JD Model D was designed to burn kerosene or other heavier fuels. Two fuel tank caps protrude through the hood of this model. To avoid confusion one was painted red for the starting fuel (usually gasoline), and the other was painted green for the regular fuel (kerosene or what other heavier fuel). PowerPoint Presentation: Restyling of the JD Model D came about in 1939. This 1947 JD Model D has the “styled” appearance for the JD Model D tractor. PowerPoint Presentation: The John Deere General Purpose Tractors! JD General Purpose (“GP”) tractors were first introduced in 1928, and continued in production up to 1935. The GP tractors were built in a tricycle row crop tractor style and in a standard 4-wheel tractor style that was also claimed to be a row crop tractor. Also, three popular JD models evolved from the GP series of tractors: The GP Model A (2-14” plows) introduced in 1934. The GP Model B (2-12” plows) introduced in 1935. The GP Model G (3-14” plows) introduced in 1938. PowerPoint Presentation: JD General Purpose Tractor. Years Built: 1928 – 1935. No. Built: 30,535. Engine: 5.1L or 5.6L 2-Cyl Gasoline.

Diesel power became increasingly important as the Deere & Company approached the end of two-cylinder engines for its farm tractors, which was an era that lasted more than fifty years. Of the JD Model 730 tractors built, 70% were powered by diesel engines. That is 7 out of every 10 JD Model 730 tractors built. Also, by 1960, the John Deere 730 diesel (along with the 720) already held a 27-year fuel economy record for the most efficient diesel tractor at the Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory. It is no wonder why Deere & Company went on to become a world-wide manufacturer of even more powerful farm tractors, starting in the 1960s, with its “New Generation of Power!” PowerPoint Presentation: The John Deere Magnificent Seven! The audio for this slide show is the movie theme of “The Magnificent Seven.” Accordingly, seven John Deere Tractor model have been chosen as “The John Deere Magnificent Seven” to end our show. You may view those choices in the following seven slides. PowerPoint Presentation: No. 1 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven! Waterloo Boy (1917 – 1924) A good start for JD's Line of Farm Tractors! PowerPoint Presentation: JD Model D. (1923 – 1953) 160,000 Built. Longest production run of any JD Model tractor. No. 2 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven!

PowerPoint Presentation: No. 4 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven! JD Model R. (1949 – 1954) 21,293 Built. John Deere's First Diesel Powered Farm Tractor. PowerPoint Presentation: No. 5 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven! JD Model 60. (1952 -1956) No. Built: 57,300. Popular with prior Model A owners. PowerPoint Presentation: No. 6 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven 7! JD Model 720 Diesel Tractor. (1956 – 1958) Efficient fuel use in Nebraska Test Laboratory. PowerPoint Presentation: No. 7 of the John Deere Magnificent Seven! JD Model 730 Diesel. (1958 – 1961) 17,032 diesel units produced out of total of 24,495 Model 730 tractor production. Shared a 27-year record of fuel economy (along with JD Model 720) for achieving best diesel fuel economy at the Nebraska Test Laboratory. PowerPoint Presentation: Thanks for Watching! That concludes our slide show about those old John Deere Tractors with the two-cylinder engines. The underlying research for this slide show was performed by me, Lyle V. Johnson, utilizing photos and data readily available from the internet using Google Searches. More specifically, John Deere tractor information and data were also available from a web site entitled: "TractorData.com". A special thanks goes to William Perkins of Millbrook, Illinois and Wayne Gargrave of Friendswood, Texas for their assistance in this project. By: Lyle V. Johnson February 10, 2014
