Life in the 1930s was a time when row crop tractors were prevalent in the farming industry, as these models were capable of cultivating row crops and featured one front wheel or two closely-spaced front wheels that traveled between two rows, according to Ag Web.

1937 Deere Tractor for Pawn Stars

Pawn Stars, The History Channel’s most popular show and one of the highest rated shows on television today has seen its fair share of odd, old and interesting objects. Owned by Rick Harrison and opened by his Father “Old Man” in the late 80s, the two have a successful business with help from Corey Harrison, Rick’s son, and his friend Chumlee. From a shrunken Amazonian head (which turned out to be a fake), a lottery ticket signed by George Washington himself and Russian missile launch keys, it’s no wonder that everyone can find something they like about Pawn Stars. And John Deere is no exception.

The John Deere Tractor: A Chronological History [Infographic]

John Deere Infographic thumb The John Deere Tractor: A Chronological History [Infographic]The Year was 1837.  It came to John Deere’s attention that the farmers of the area were having some major problems with their old cast-iron plows in the thick, rich soil of the Midwest.  John made his first self-cleaning plow out of steel from an old saw.  It worked like a charm and John Deere, being the innovator that he was, did something quite unusual at that time.  John started making his new plows before he ever got any requests for them.  This was unusual in that blacksmiths made items only on demand for their customers.

More probably I was out in the driveway dribbing a ball pretending I was Walt Frazier or Earl Monroe. That’s just a guess on my part. My memory isn’t quite that good. But I can tell you without a doubt, what was going on in front showrooms of John Deere dealerships around the country.

The Art of John Deere

It’s easy to appreciate the quality of a John Deere tractor.  A tractor’s usefulness benefits everyone from the farms that earns a living to the people that consume the food down the line. What you might not think of is the side in which farming and tractors as well as the people that bring them to life consider the process an art.

You may have seen some recent press in the Des Moines Register about The Figge Art Museum in Davenport, across the river from Deere HQ in Moline, Illinois that they have opened a permanent gallery to display the best of John Deere corporate art on a rotating basis.
