John Deere Day Show 1962 — 125 Years of John Deere. COLOR (144 minutes). George Gobel serves as host.
Starts with Best of Oddities in Farming, followed by Harvest D-Day showing field footage of the 40, 42, 45, 55, 95, and 105. Next, A Pattern for Performance takes the viewer on a fine tour of tractor manufacturing operations — Waterloo and Dubuque — from molten iron to making castings, and from machining to assembly. This is followed by excellent field footage showing a wide variety of implements with the 1010, 2010, 3010, and 4010 in row crops, wheat country, rice, vegetables, and cotton while planting, cultivating, and harvesting.
Then, What’s New for 1962 shows new implements with all tractor models; even the 8010.
