Previous Question:

Question 31:

Questions: What tractor make & model had the longest production run?

Answer:  The John Deere Model D had a 30-year production run.

History: The John Deere Model D was in production for 30 years. Production started on March 1, 1923, and ended on July 3, 1953.

The Model D was a standard tread tractor with what would become John Deere’s famous two-cylinder engine producing 15-27 HP in 1923 and increasing in horsepower over the years to 38.2 HP at the drawbar & 42.05 on the belt. The model D got many improvements and styling changes over the years

The John Deere Model D started life with a spoked flywheel.
In 1927 Deere switched to a solid flywheel.
In 1939 the John Deere Model D received a facelift and became what we call today as a styled John Deere tractor.

Honorable mention – If your answer was the Farmall Cub, please note that the Cub went through three name changes.

The original Farmall Cub was manufactured from 1947 to 1964, then it had a name change becoming the International Cub and was manufactured from 1964 until 1975, then finally the New International Cub was manufactured from 1975 to 1979
