Green machines

Green machines

THE POPULARITY of the John Deere tractor has led to the publication of scores of books on the venerable machines of green and yellow. Entering this library is a new book simply entitled John Deere Tractors written by Scott Webb and photographed by Andy Kraushaar.

The book's compact design allows readers to find a specific John Deere model simply by glancing at the upper-left edge of the pages. Webb's brief but effective surveys highlight the major changes in Deere's tractor design, production and marketing. Kraushaar's color photography is also very crisp, allowing the reader to see how the machines have changed over the last nine decades. Specification charts summarize such mechanical vitals as engine and transmission for every major model.

Ultimately, John Deere Tractors is a good introduction to the subject. The reader can enjoy it whether at home or “in the field” searching for vintage Deere machines.
