March/April 2017 Issue


New Generation Tractor Sales Information — Part II
Sackett Sez… Happy New Year! — by Lee Sackett
57 The “20” and “30” Series Sales Information Books
John Deere Day Movies on DVD!



The cover of this issue is also the cover of 30-page sales literature A-1357-62-7-Dub. ( July 1962); original size, 7-7/8 x 9 inches. The tractor pictured is a 2010 Row-Crop with the most popular dual front wheels in tricycle fashion.

Unlike the 1010, whose Row-Crop version was introduced last, the 2010 Row-Crop was available right from the start; and instead of it being quite scarce, it was the most common 2010 — followed closely by the other 2010 featured in the literature, the Row-Crop Utility.

Despite their reasonable overall popularity, relatively few 2010 Tractors have been restored to an Expo-Quality level. It has been from 52 to 57 years since the 2010 was in production. Finding reasonably restorable units now may present a challenge in itself. Any 2010 in wellpreserved, repaired, or fully restored condition can make a fine addition to a vintage John Deere collection. For persons desiring a scarce version, consider an LP-Gas tractor. Beyond that, the Agricultural Crawler will probably become one of the most sought after of all New Generation Tractors.
