I’ve been a Deere man all my life, as was my father. I no longer farm, and miss the machinery part the most.
I started getting serious hands on experience at about 10 or 12 when Dad ‘gave’ me the job of changing oil in our ‘A’ , 60, and 730 diesel.
Just finished a book on the early Deeres.
I’ve always been amazed how Deere has managed to ‘find’ it’s way through the wild gyrations of the ag machinery market. Of course they are diversified far beyond that now, but it sure looks like there are men of serious faith at the head of the organization.
Todays Deere machinery is exciting, I’m looking forward to seeing more.
