John Deere Model A

John Deere Model A

The John Deere Model A was the result of years of research and experimentation, and it was perhaps the most successful innovation in the search for the best all-purpose row-crop tractor design. Its tricycle design and adjustable rear tread width contributed greatly to making the Model A on of the greatest tractors in agricultural history.

The first Model A came off the assembly line in April 1934. The tractor had a 25hp engine, and had a 4-speed transmission. There were 8 different model A variations. Some of these were tricycle, Hi-Crop, orchard, single front tire and industrial models.
