John Deere

By: Trevor Hemmersbach


John Deere was born in Rutland, Vermont, February 7, 1804 (Greenrun 1). John worked in a blacksmith shop after high school and he started to make plows. He first started making cast-iron plows and he found out that they do not work. He experimented on many different types of metal to find out what was the strongest. The company John Deere started out of just selling plows and then expanded to sell tractors and more.

Evolution of John Deere Equipment

Over the years the operation of tractors being made compared to the 1940s is unbelievable. From the first tractors to having one computer and that computer was the operator, to nowhere the new tractors will drive themselves and will send a text to you mechanic saying that there is something wrong with the machine.
