    Default National Geographic Ultimate Factories "John Deere"

    Ran across it this Sunday evening. Story follows combines being built and used. Still interesting. Direct TV 276 NGC.

    Was the entire program about the deere factory, or were there other factories on the same show? The reason I ask is that upcoming episodes are Harley-Davidson, Peterbilt, Ferrari and a few others I can't remember - but no mention of Deere...
    I can run a D100 and a 9560RT (and most of the models in between) all in the same day!!!

    This show was about the harvester works in Moline. I have taken the plant and tour twice and the show was very good. They would show a bit of the plant, give a little history on John deere then they following a custom harvest crew so you could see the combines in action. They mostly jumped back and forth between the manufacturing and harvet crew. I thought it was entertaining. Among other things, they showed the steel being stamped out, forming and welding the rotor, assembling the different combine componets, painting, installing the engine and cab and building a grain platform.

    My brother has been to that plant, he sells e-coat equipment, he thinks they have the largest paint vat anywhere.

    I ran into this show last night channel surfing, very interesting. You would never believe how much technology John deere puts into there products. I really loved the torcher testing.

    Was this Discovery channel? I'd like to see it if my cable provider has the channel but 276 NGC doesn't mean anything I can understand.

    NGC stands for National Geographic Channel. I searched my Tivo and the show does not come up on my listing. I can only see up to Feb 23. I did however find this web site:
    National Geographic Channel TV Schedule - Ultimate Factories: Ultimate Factories: John deere [TV-G]

    You can put in your email address and they will email you the next time it is coming on. Hope this helps.
