In 2013 John Deere celebrates its 50th anniversary as a lawn equipment manufacturer. With the production of its first lawn tractor, the model 110, in Horicon, Wisconsin, US, John Deere successfully entered this new market in 1963. Since then, the product range has grown steadily, and now offers a comprehensive choice of domestic lawn and professional turf equipment for homeowners, commercial customers, groundsmen and greenkeepers.
At the 2013 SIMA Show (25th-28th February), John Deere launched a new model in the R900i Series of trailed sprayers. The R952i sprayer with 5,200 litre tank is packed with intelligent solutions to support arable farmers and contractors in the entire crop protection process from filling to spraying.
The launch of “Deere Season” from John Deere provides the perfect opportunity for such gardeners to be equipped with the right lawn mainten-ance machinery for a beautiful lawn. John Deere’s specialist dealers are available to offer advice and showcase the comprehensive line-up of garden equipment that includes lawn tractors, walk-behind mowers and scarifiers as well as a wide range of accessories and attachments.
John Deere Werk Zweibrücken (JDWZ), the company’s European manufacturing base for the production of combine harvesters and self-propelled forage harvesters, has formally handed over its first S-Series combine, an S670, to a German customer.
Providing even greater performance in a range of environments, John Deere’s XUV 855D Gator 4x4 utility vehicle is now available with power steering. This is designed to reduce steering effort considerably, compared to models without this feature.
