Tractor Tales: 1981 John Deere 4440

Machinery Pete’s Greg Peterson sees a lot of tractors. When he calls one the “Holy Grail,” it’s a big deal.

This week on Tractor Tales, Machinery Pete looks at the 2 millionth 1981 John Deere 4440 that rolled off the line in Waterloo, Ia. The tractor has 26 hours on it.

“Because of the tractor’s significance to John Deere, we’ve never sold the tractor,” said Phil Lauer, product manager with John Deere. “We kept it and stored it in an archive facility that we have. The tractor’s been kept under wraps.

The 35-year-old machine even has the “new tractor smell.”

Watch the story on Tractor Tales above. Watch Tractor Tales every weekend on U.S. Farm Report.
