Last summer we posted eight of our favorite John Deere advertisements, but we came across a few more as we went back in time to write our JD 175th Anniversary post a few weeks ago. While John Deere advertisements have always been creative, they also instill a sense of passion and loyalty that many Deere owners can relate to. Although Deere builds equipment for everything from backyard gardening to enormous farms, they still find a way to make a connection with all people in their advertisements. Join us as we travel from a 1926 John Deere advertisement to present day commercials.
This first ad from 1926 explains to consumers what makes a good engine before telling them that they are “losing money every day this little profit-maker is not on your farm.
Here’s a fun one from 1946 that gives testimonials from other John Deere owners.
This ad for John Deere’s Three-Wheel-in-Line Combines promotes the machine’s “exceptionally low operating cost” with a John Deere Model “A” Tractor.
Another ad for John Deere combines, though this one is promoting their use for small and medium-sized farms.
This ad from 1974 shows the “Nothing Runs Like A Deere” slogan that was originally created for a John Deere snowmobile campaign a few years prior.
Bargain tractor’s take a hit in this late 1970’s John Deere commercial.
