Item Description

History of John Deere on DVD

John Deere was an American blacksmith and manufacturer who founded Deere & Company? the largest agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers in the world. Born in Rutland, Vermont, Deere moved to Illinois and invented the first commercially successful steel plow in 1837. The wrought-iron framed plow had a polished steel share, which made it ideal for the tough soil of the Midwest and worked better than other plows. By early 1838, Deere completed his first steel plow and sold it to a local farmer, Lewis Crandall, who quickly spread word of his success with Deere's plow. So two neighbors soon placed orders with Deere. By 1841, Deere was manufacturing 75-100 plows per year.
Includes a wonderful vintage DVD republication for the John Deere Machinery Catalog of 1896. Loads of information, illustrations, prices and even a bit of company history in this 350+ page catalog. Dozens of pages of replacement part illustrations, part numbers and pricing of over 100 years ago. A wonderful collectable for any one interested in early farming equipment.
