In 1963 the 3010 and 4010 were updated  to become the 3020 and 4020. Increased in power, The most major change was the Power-Shift transmission option and a hydraulic power differential lock, the performance of these tractors was dramatically improved. With a 6-PTO-hp increase from 59.44 to 65.28 as tested at Nebraska, the 3020 was available in row-crop (four versions of front-wheel equipment), standard, orchard, and Hi-Crop form. The standard transmission was the successful Synchro-Range with eight forward and three reverse speeds. The new Power-Shift transmission meant that you could move from any of its eight forward or four reverse speeds without use of the clutch. An inching pedal was provided for attachment of implements.
  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 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 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 M

In 1947 John Deere opened a new tractor factory in Dubuque, Iowa, built to produce The John Deere M. The John Deere M tractor was created to address the increasing demand for small tractors and to compete with the increasingly popular Ford and Ferguson Tractor.

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.
