Celebrating 50 years of trading in the UK, John Deere recently invited tractor owners and collectors from across the UK and Ireland, to bring their green and yellow machines to Langar, Nottinghamshire, its UK base. In total, over 200 machines were showcased, spanning 100 years of tractor production, with at least one tractor representing every year from 1962 to 2011.

 

Take a look at the significance of the Langar site to John Deere.

 

Over the two days it was estimated 14,000 people attended the event. Attractions for enthusiasts included field demos of the tractors and machinery parades. Tractors ranged from the manufacturer’s most powerful tractor, the 9620RX, to a Waterloo Boy Model N, produced in 1919, it was the first tractor produced by John Deere.

 

Machines are common to go around the clock at 10,000 hours, but a Devon contractor made a 450 mile round-trip to the event on his 1996, 6400 tractor, which had a recorded 48,000 hours on the clock; equivalent to working 6.5 hours every day, since it was produced.

 

To see how John Deere and other manufacturers got to where they are today, take a look at manufacturers milestones.
