Im from Australia and i see lots of John Deere equipment here on farms and used by council and i also have a John Deere ride on mower
even the little ones have John Deere toy tractors
I have some friends in America and their son works in the John Deere factory in Tennessee and its the same factory my ride on mower was made
a bit of a coincidence i thought
Good morning Dean,
Oh ya on the John Deere's
I am from Iowa, home of the invention of the John Deere by the Froelichs
Froelich is but 5 miles from here where there is a Monument to the inventor and place of it's birth.
A real great read if one just googles John Deere or Froelich.
Seen the Tractors in the fields when visiting relatives on their farm when I was small , The tractors always looked Interesting & I liked the Name.
I Wanted to go for a ride on one, but did not get the chance for various reasons.
At 6yrs old I overheard someone talk about Dear John letters, then I wondered if it was related to the Name of the tractor... and I thought (Poor John!).
I recall the John Deere toy tractors back then & I thought they were cute.
