COVER IMAGE

This 40-page sales literature on the Model “R” Tractor included a huge, 12-page, 23-1/4" x 16-3/4" center foldout that, unfortunately, has been lost from most of these booklets over the years.

The Model “R” was the Standard-Tread Tractor that replaced the Model “D”, and preceded the Models “80”, “820”, and “830”. It is the only John Deere Tractor to hold the title of “Dual Two-Cylinder” because a twocylinder, opposed-configuration, auxiliary gasoline starting engine was used to start the massive 415-cubic-inch Diesel engine.

Both “Standard Tread” and “Starting Engine” are terms covered in this issue.
