John Deere Model G
The production of the John Deere Model G actually began in May of 1937. It was billed as a full 3-plow tractor, meaning it could handle three 16 inch bottoms in most soils. It had essentially the same power as the D, but was about a half-ton lighter. Therefor, there was more power available to the drawbar, since was used to overcome the tractor's own weight.
The G doesn't stands for it's price tag in the early fifties, because it was worth more than double in these times. In it's experimental stage the John Deere model G was called the, "KX" and later designated the "F" model. Unfortunately International's Farmall's already had a "F" model in production so the letter "G" was made the choice. It was introduced as an unstyled tractor in 1937, meaning that it did not have any fancies or extras.
