1934 Model B
May 24, 2011
This 1934 Model B is featured in the Art of the John Deere Tractor. Elmer McCormick most likely designed the tractor from a sketch. The Model B was introduced in 1935 and the hood’s leaping Deere logo was used on only very few early Model Bs. More than 300,000 of this series were produced between 1935 and 1952, and this example is a first production model.
The machines in The Art of the John Deere Tractor
by Lee Klancher were hand selected from the more than 400 John Deere tractors in the collect of Walter and Bruce Keller. The Brillion, Wisc. father and son team have more than 600 tractors spread across seven buildings and a custom-built brick showroom with glass windows. In the book 30 tractors were photographed in studio built on the Keller farm for this book which aims to highlight the design, style and art of the John Deere tractor history.
