    Default Seen a Model R...

    I live on a small farm in south central Ohio. The area is rolling hills, small fields and all farms are quite small. I am pretty familiar with the local equipment in use on these farms...at least I thought. About a week ago, I was working out in the greenhouse and I could hear an old tractor coming down the road (busy state route). It was not a familiar sound though, I walked to the greenhouse door and about fell over...it was an old Deere Model R, in pretty good original condition, towing a cart, heading down the road to the fertilizer plant. What a sight! Anyway, just nice to see something like this still working the fields.

    There are still plenty 2-cyl Deeres out there. Yesterday I got behind an old 720 with a post driver on the back and pulling a load of posts on a hay rack.

    We still see a few of the older Deeres around here though local farms mostly use New Generation or Generation 2 Deeres. It really shocked me to see an old diesel though and the R models were rarely sold in this part of the country, they were marketed for large farms. Really neat to see this animal.

    Only see the old JDs at antique shows anymore around here. Love to here them run.
    Kind Regards, Gary

    Nothing runs like a Deere, but I loved my Massey Ferguson
