The John Deere Model M Tractor

The John Deere Model M tractor was first released in 1947 Fitted with a vertical 2-cylinder all-square 4" x 4" gasoline engine of 20 hp, it was designed to replace the John Deere Model "H," John Deere Model "L," and John Deere Model "LA" . Fitted with John Deere's Touch-O-Matic hydraulics, it was initially a standard 4-wheel tractor of modern design, with electric starting as standard, as was its PTO. More than 20 integral implements were offered for use with its QuikTatch hitching system. Lighting and a belt pulley were optional extras. The styling was the same as used on the larger row-crop tractors.

John Deere Touch-o-matic

John Deere's Touch-o-matic The word itself tells the magic story of time and muscle saved by John Deere's Model "MT" tractor owners in handling their many farming jobs. A touch of the operator's hand to the handy control lever and smooth hydraulic power raises, lowers, or sets Quik-Tatch tools to the exact working depth desired—automatically.

Advantages of Touch-o-matic
Owners report that Touch-o-matic control is "tops" from every standpoint:

•  It is fast and positive in action—hydraulic pump is at the front of the engine where it operates whenever the engine is running.

• It enables you to do things that are impossible in other light tractors. For instance, operators in the Western vegetable-growing sections are enthusiastic about the dual control feature which provides perfect delayed-lift for the new Quik-Tatch vegetable cultivator designed especially for the "MT" Tractor. The desired depth of planting, cultivating, and fertilizing is more evenly maintained on terraces, back furrows, or in dead furrows because right- and left-hand gangs can be operated at different depths.

•  One of the best features of all is the outstanding ease with which the control unit can be removed for servicing if necessary. The Touch-omatic ssembly attaches to the tractor by means of easily accessible bolts. If service difficulties are encountered in the field, a phone call brings the dealer with a service kit. Valuable working time is saved for the owner.

John Deere Quik-Tatch

With any tractor used for general-purpose farm work, it is important that changes from one job to another be made quickly and easily. The matched integral tools designed for the John Deere "MT" Tractor are called Quik-Tatch to describe the remarkable ease and speed with which one man can attach and remove them. When you see a John Deere Model "MT" Tractor being demonstrated, you will see plows, cultivators, and many other tools attached and detached so quickly you will hardly believe it possible. When attaching plows, listers, field cultivators, etc., merely back the tractor into the equipment. Height of drawbar is quickly and accurately adjusted by Toucho- matic control to match the hitch point on the equipment. No wrenches needed. No hammer. No heavy lifting. You stay right in the tractor seat. To detach, all that is necessary is to pull the pin and drive ahead. Tractor is free for other jobs. Most Quik-Tatch tools require no levers, main frame, wheels, axles, clutch, or cushion spring release

John Deere MC
John Deere MC 1949

The John Deere model MC replaced the BO. The MC crawler represented the first all John Deere designed crawler, and the beginning of a line which was to develop into the industrial division of the company.
John Deere GP
John Deere GP 1929

The John Deere GP followed the basic design of the John Deere D . Introduced as a row-crop tractor the above pictured model was not nearly as popular as the tricycle configuration

The demand arose for a tractor smaller than the John Deere "A." The result for the 1935 season was the introduction of the John Deere B it was initially introduced with a shorter main frame, but from No. 42,200 on this was lengthened so that integral equipment could be interchanged between the two models.

John Deere 4020

Based on Deere's philosophy of constantly improving
product, even if it is already the best available, the 3010
and 4010 were updated in 1963 to become the John Deere 3020 and
4020. Increased in power, but most importantly given the
Power-Shift transmission option and a hydraulic power
differential lock, the performance of these tractors was dramatically improved.
