The History of John Deere Tractors

John Deere, also known as “Deere & Company,” is an American company that manufactures agricultural machinery, landscaping equipment, and tractors. The company was founded by John Deere in 1837 in Grand Detour, Illinois. Initially, the company started producing steel plowshares.
From today’s perspective, the most significant moment in the company’s history was the acquisition of the Waterloo Gasoline Engine Company in 1918. This move allowed John Deere to enter the agricultural tractor production market. The first model was the “Waterloo Boy,” which quickly became popular among farmers.
In the 1920s, John Deere had to face the first challenges associated with increasing competition and higher performance and quality standards in the market. The introduction of the “Nebraska Tractor Tests” in 1920 was a response to the growing demands for tractor performance. The Waterloo Boy N model, being the first tested model, gave the company a chance to prove the quality of its machines.
During the Great Depression of the 1930s, John Deere, despite financial difficulties, continued to develop its tractors. Models such as the “A” and “B” were responses to farmers’ needs during this period. The introduction of hydraulic lift on the “A” model was one of the conveniences that increased comfort and work efficiency.
However, it was the “D” model, introduced to the market in 1935, that brought a true revolution. It was equipped with a two-cylinder, horizontal engine and a modern design. Designers, including the famous Henry Dreyfuss, gave it a modern look, which ensured popularity and recognition among farmers worldwide.
After World War II, John Deere continued to develop, introducing new tractor models such as the “M” and “MC.” The “R” model, introduced in 1949, was equipped with a diesel engine powered by diesel fuel.
From the 1950s to the 1960s, John Deere expanded its operations into the European market by acquiring the Lanz Company in Mannheim. This merger enabled John Deere to offer its machines in Europe, contributing to further brand recognition.
In the following years, John Deere continued to develop, introducing new technologies such as air-conditioned cabins, automatic guidance systems, and telematics. Models such as the “8R” from the 2000s significantly raised the bar in terms of performance during field work.
Today, John Deere remains one of the leading manufacturers of agricultural machinery worldwide, offering a wide range of machines from tractors to combines, as well as farm management systems based on the latest digital technologies.
