John Deere Model D
In 1923 John Deere announced it's new Model D. It was a 22/30-hp two cylinder standard-tread tractor roughly based on the Waterloo boy, but completely reworked with an integral frame and an enclosed final drive. The Model D is considered the “Poppa” of a long line of “Johnny Poppers” tractors.
Originally it was known as the John Deere 15-27, this tractor later was dubbed the Model D. Although this Model saw numerous changes during it's 30 year production run. The basic design remained the same. In the mid-1920s, a farmer could obtain a Model D for about a thousand dollars. The weight of the Model D is over two tons.
