John Deere Model H
The John Deere Model H was a small tractor that met a small farmer's needs for power at a price he could afford. Larger farms liked the H for it's ability to do lightweight jobs economically. The Model H was included in the green tractor lineup as a "filler" between the smaller L and the larger Model B tractors. The engine in the John Deere Model H was the smallest two cylinder horizontal engine ever put on a John Deere tractor.
The Model H was usually used as a row-crop tractor and it was introduced in 1939, with a few minor modifications it remained in production until 1947. During those years four versions of the Model H were produced: The Model H (a dual narrow-front row crop), the Model HN (same as the Model H but with a single front wheel), the Model HWH (same as the Model H but had 8-38 rear tires and an adjustable wide front axle), and the Model HNH (same as the HWH except with a single front wheel).
