Out of the Vault Series: Profits on Wheels – John Deere Industrial Equipment

John Deere created this 1962 film to highlight its growing Industrial Equipment division.

It’s 1962. Deere & Company is marking its 125th anniversary. The new Deere & Company Administrative Center, which will eventually become World Headquarters, is under construction in Moline, Ill., and construction has begun on a product-engineering center in Dubuque, Iowa. The company has just bought a majority interest in South African Cultivators, a farm implement firm near Johannesburg.

Things are moving in the John Deere Industrial Equipment division. Deere & Company had been making industrial-yellow machines since 1958, when the company introduced its first hydraulic bulldozer, the Model 64, and a new 6-way power-angle-tilt blade for it. By now, the 440 Crawler is in its third year of using single stick crawler control, a Deere innovation. In the upcoming year, Deere will introduce the JD500 and JD600 Loader Backhoes and the 5010 Elevating Scraper.

Filmed in Michigan, “Profits on Wheels” highlights contractors using John Deere industrial equipment. A 3010 Loader Backhoe works on a new engineering hall at Michigan State University and a 2010 Loader Backhoe finishes a creek-crossing job and street project for the City of Kalamazoo.
