“30” Series Sales Information Book!
The Same Information The Dealers Received!
The original books are very rare. J.R. Hobbs and Jack Cherry have only ever seen one complete book in good condition, and it was used to make this 130-page reproduction.
Originally published and distributed to dealers 50 years ago in 1958, it contains images, descriptions, and specifications of “30” Series Agricultural Tractors and optional equipment. The reproduction even includes the color foldout introduction, just like the original!
The originals were bound in a “loose-leaf” notebook with the intention that the book could be updated. This also became their downfall, as pages became lost over the decades. Distribution of them also may have been less than that of the similar “20” Series Dealer Information Book, as far more of them still exist than do the “30” Series Book. Another explanation is that some dealers didn’t take the time to insert the “30” Series Package into their notebooks, and discard or file away the “20” Series information. Consequently, the “30” Series Package, which arrived in a mailing and was held together with a paper band, was tucked in a desk drawer or filing cabinet and ultimately lost.
The reproduction is firmly bound into a rugged, soft-cover book. Contents are listed rather than tabbed, to eliminate the possibility of tab-page damage and to avoid difficulty in turning pages. Also, eliminating the tab pages helped to keep publishing costs in line. While the value of a good original is in the range of $1000 or more, Two-Cylinder Club Members can own the reproduction for just $20.00! This is quite possibly the Best Value and Most Important Single Item Ever Made Available for anyone owning or planning to own a John Deere “30” Series Two-Cylinder Tractor. The limited one-time-only production run is sure to make this reproduction a sought-after collectible in its own right in the years to come. They’re 80% sold out!

When combined with the “30” Series Sales Information Book (above), the “20” Series Sales Information book will give the reader
a real grasp on the later two-cylinder tractors — something not all John Deere enthusiasts will be able to say. Yes, it takes
both of these books to complete the two-cylinder set, but they won’t be available to everybody. The
“30” Series Book is approaching the “SOLD OUT” status, and the exact same number of “20” Series
Books have been printed. And, like the “30” Series book, the printing plates have been destroyed! To
top it off, there is an 11-page list of equipment for use with John Deere Tractors as part of the “20”
Series book. The implement is listed, a description given, and then appropriate tractor model(s) are
listed. It even goes so far as to list the John Deere Factory at which the implement was manufactured!
Never before has such information been laid out in this concise fashion, but here it all is in
the “20” Series Sales Information Book.
Obviously, with the see-through pages, this book cost more to produce. Even so, it is available to
Two-Cylinder Club Members for just $25.00 plus handling and shipping. (Non-member price is $40.00.)
Here’s what it contains…
- Full-color images and essential information and specifications on 32 pages, covering the “320”, “420”, “520”, “620”, “720”, and “820”.
- The “420” Wheel Tractors are explained (with photos and illustrations on ten pages)
to a degree that will make you more knowledgeable than ever.
- The “420” Crawler is featured on 12 pages that fulfills what you need to know to
really understand what these little powerhouses are all about.
- No less than 14 pages are devoted to the engines for the “520”, “620”, and “720”,
including gasoline, LP-Gas, and Diesel.
- An exciting, 26-page section on Hydraulics will help to end the mysteries of “what”
and “how.”While some may take issue with the description “exciting,” that’s just how
it can be, with over 50 images plus the super-nifty “build-it-yourself ” see-through pages!
- A 12-page “Miscellaneous” section on the Waterloo Tractors shows many of the
features and options that set one tractor apart from another, and add to the rarity
and value of an otherwise common model.
- The final section is the 11-page Working Equipment list described earlier; a musthave
for the person interested in pairing an implement with a tractor.
- 130 pages in all. A wonderful, valuable, and useful reference for yourself, or the
perfect gift for a friend, all at the very reasonable price of just $25.00.
Only $25.00 per copy!
