The John Deere WA-17 Tractor; seldom seen, owned by few, desired by many. It has taken quite awhile for the Wagner-built John Deere WA-14 and WA-17 Tractors to become an extreme goal for collectors around the globe, but these stop-gap, articulating, 4WD Tractors have certainly attained that status in recent years. The feature article includes them, as well as a review of their predecessors.
And, as can be seen, this is the 35th Anniversary of Two-Cylinder. We’re looking ahead to the 40th, and want to know what readers think should be featured in that issue! Majority opinion rules.
