John Deere Model M Facts and Key Dates

August 29, 2016

The John Deere Model M is a 22 HP tractor that comes in a very compact frame. Although it weighs in at about 2500 pounds and is only 10 feet long and 4.5 feet wide, it can still handle a belly mower, blade, or even a loader if necessary. Additionally, the small frame makes it a great option for small fields and getting around tight corners.
