What's New John Deere

Postby T-Mo » Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:02 am

For those of us who also like the green tractors, John Deere has a series of videos entitled, "What's New". First is from 1963 featuring John Deere's first L&G tractor, the 110:

Next is from 1952 showing the John Deere M:

I had a few round fender John Deeres, a '64, three '66s, a couple of '65s, all 110s, and a '67 112. I just traded a pretty nice '66 110 for 5 Wheel Horses, that don't run, but I really wanted the two 953s, and the GT-14. The other two were just throw ins as far as I'm concerned.

The 200 series are probably one of the most under-appreciated and under rated GT Deere made. They are pretty much bullet proof. The 210 probably has one of the highest weight to hp rating of any GT Deere made. I had a few 200 series, my first GT was a 214, and I had a couple of them plus a couple of 210s, and a 208, which are quite uncommon, though probably not that rare. I also had a 445, a 430, a 400, a 318, a 316 Onan, a 112L, and a ....... I had quite a few JD L&G stuff, but now I just have the GX345, a X320 and a 717 commercial zero turn.

My family got a new 214 from hell in the 80s. It mowed great but we couldn't keep it running--even after JD replaced every electrical component on it, a few of them twice, under warranty--until we rigged a hot wire with toggle switch from the coil to the battery. I was glad to see it go down the road. They got a GT245 to replace it and it's excellent. I just broke down and bought an X580. I've put about 3 hours on it so far but I would never have imagined I would have something so "fancy" for cutting grass. I don't know if the electronic and plastic stuff on it will go 40+ years but we'll see......

The X500 series are very heavily built and should last a long time. The main concern, of course, will be the plastic hood. Deere, and the rest of the industry, has fallen in love with plastic hoods and they're prone to breakage. If you can afford it, buy the grille guard and/or the front bumper to help protect the hood. Also, be careful when opening and closing the hood. I wish they would go back to metal grills and metal engine side panels, at least.

I love Old tractors no matter what color,I have a 1952 mt that I use for bush hogging,a farmall cub used for garden duties and a 61 mf 35d for heavy tilling and planting. Nothing runs like a 2 cylinder deere,cultivates like a cub or pulls like a mf35d.Just old machinery I grew up with and has a soft spot in my heart. It is a shame that they are slowly being hauled to the scrap metal yards for a few cents.thanx,Tim
