1935 John Deere Model A Tractor

1935 John Deere Model A Tractor

In 1837, a midwestern blacksmith named John Deere, fashions a polished steel plow to aid farmers to cut furrows into the sticky midwestern soil. For almost the next 100 years, the John Deere company will be a plow manufacturer. As farming expands and the need for reliable mechanization brought on by larger size farms showing promise of a more profitable business model, John Deere Company purchases the Waterloo Boy tractor company, and as they say the rest is history.

The A was John Deere's first true row-crop tractor, replacing the GP. There were several variants of the A. The A was the row-crop model. The AR was a standard (or fixed) tread model. The model A was the first Deere tractor to come from the factory with rubber tires.

Exterior
Bathed in nicely patina John Deere Green, this heavy metal tractor has cast badging, painted yellow on the front grille and rear axle. It is missing the badging typically found on the sides of the “hood”. Yellow wheels, thin spoked on the large treaded rear, and dual front wheels, interestingly during an earlier restoration, the original spoked front wheels were replaced with more modern solid steel wheels. A fascinating simple totally exterior steering mechanism is seen. A simple cantilevered metal seat hangs from the back and is fronted by the original massive steering wheel.

Drivetrain
A 309ci 2-cylinder 4-valve engine sits up front and is liquid cooled. A dry disc clutch enables the user to use the 4 forward, and 1 reverse gearbox. A rear PTO is seen under the seat and above the standard hitch.

An earlier restoration has seen some time pass since and may have even been put to actual use once restored. Runs well, and appearance overall is fair to good condition considering its age.
