Tractor tour highlights John Deere products

Posted by Green Fun Store on 3/24/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
A bus tour held by the Stephenson County Farm Bureau brought enthusiasts on a ride to the John Deere manufacturing facility in Waterloo, Iowa, according to JournalStandard.com.

Members of the tour visited the compound, which has been building John Deere products since 1981, and were able to observe the production of the Deere 7000, 8000 and 9000 models as they were being put together.

One of the biggest highlights of the tour for many tourists was the ability to get a glimpse of a 1917 Waterloo Boy tractor that sits near the production line as a reminder of the great history of the organization. Visitors were also allowed to visit a special historical area of the plant that showcased the two-millionth row-crop 4440 model that was built in February 1980.

From there, visitors were wowed by the advances in technology that allow John Deere tractors to be what they are today. With more than 17,000 parts coming together with the help of highly-capable computers, onlookers awed at the ease that these machines tightened the nuts and bolts on each part as it was prepared.

For this lucky group of tourists, Ag life may never get much better.
