John Deere Model B

John Deere Model B

The Model B tractor was produced for the needs of small row crop farmers who needed less power. It was in production for nearly 20-year, and the versions of the B can be broadly divided into three groups. The original B is often referred to as "unstyled", and includes all tractors built through 1938. In 1939, with tractor number 60000, began the "early styled" model B. In mid 1947, with tractor number 201000, began the "late styled" model B.
