John Deere R

John Deere R

For Sale at Tamar Vintage Tractors - 1954 John Deere R


A fantastically bold tractor with great presence. The model R was John Deere’s first production diesel tractor.


The diesel engine is started by a 2-cylinder petrol donkey engine, which runs really well after having the magnetos rebuilt and starts the diesel engine effortlessly.


The 2-cylinder, horizontal diesel engine can produce in excess of 50HP and runs and pulls well.


The tinwork is in great shape and the tyres are as-new on each corner.


Comes with a current V5.


Perfect piece for a John Deere collection or would make a super road run tractor!


Contact Matt for more information on 07966881985.


Based in Tavistock, Devon. Part exchanges welcome. Nationwide delivery can be arranged.
