With deep roots in agriculture, John Deere is often the first brand that comes to mind when thinking about farm equipment manufacturing. Today, Deere not only produces engines for agriculture operations, but also for construction, forestry and thousands of other functions.


With more than 85 years of expertise, Deere understands the heat, humidity, dust and other rough conditions that engines are often exposed to. But, it’s one thing to read about John Deere engines in product brochures, and another to hear from the people that use them.

For this reason, we put together a video gallery so that you can hear from customers. Enjoy!

Wonderful Orchard Customer Video

Wonderful Orchards (a large farming company in California) grows a variety of food, but is most well known for pistachios and almonds. The farm utilizes more than 200 John Deere tractors, covering 85,000 acres of land – broken down into 40,000 pistachios, 30,000 almonds and the remaining in pomegranates.

It’s difficult to harvest this in a 6 to 8-week window. There is an incredible amount of equipment and power that has to run 20 hours a day, 7 days a week to harvest such a large amount.

It’s a tough operation that only John Deere engines are capable of handling. Watch the video to see for yourself.
