John Deere

The roots of John Deere can be traced back to a small blacksmith’s shop in 1837 Decatur, Illinois. It was here where John Deere himself produced a highly-effective polished steel plow to replace the ineffectual wooden plows being used in the area. His business began to grow exponentially over the next few years, and today it is known for agricultural, construction, landscaping, and forestry equipment.

Beginning with plows, the John Deere company began to expand its offerings to include wagons, corn planters, cultivators, and then early 1900s it began to focus on manufacturing tractors. It then began to produce innovative, versatile combine harvesters. In World War II, the company military tractors and M3 tanks, along with other equipment to support the Allied war effort. In the 1960s, John Deere began to produce four and six cylinder tractors, which included improvements across the board that made their tractors extremely popular.

Eventually, John Deere branched out into earth moving and forestry equipment, and began to tailor some of its offerings for use in landscaping and general lawn care. Today, the agricultural division manufactures tractors, harvesters, combines, self-propelled sprayers, and front end loaders, among many other related products. The John Deere construction division focuses on equipment including backhoe loaders, compact track loaders, crawler dozers, crawler loaders, excavators, skid steers, tractor loaders, and wheel loaders. Their forestry division manufactures equipment including feller bunchers, crawler dozers, harvester, and skidders.
