MOUNTVIC 442694 1 John Deere either
John Deere
I took the following photos from behind the fence. Wished I could have gone inside, as you can see they also have several other old John Deere beauties.

Looks like a 8640 and a 8630.

I was wrong, this is definitely an 8410.

Wish that, too. :-P
Is this a farmer who also collects old JD beauties or a dealer of 3rd hand tractors?

Re: John Deere
MB trac 1800 this is actually at a large grower. It's actually a large corporation, which today farms land in over 3 states I believe. They also own their own processing plants.

Some of the farmers have more tractors on their property than the local John Deere dealer.

All the tractors are still used for different jobs.

Re: John Deere
Thanks for this information. If they can afford not selling the tractors when not in use any more. Nice that they keep their old stuff. Or perhaps it's more expensive to scrap them than keeping them. I don't think they actually are all in use?

Re: John Deere
Believe me they use all those tractors. I saw a beautiful 5020 the other day, on another farm and they still use it. I was told by the local John Deere dealer that they had re-painted it a few years back , and that it still had the original engine. Keep in mind those are John Deeres.

Re: John Deere
I wish I had such a large courtyard. In Germany one of the biggest problems of many farmers is to manage not to damage either a building or a machine when coming home because the machines are becoming larger and larger and the farms don't. :-P

Re: John Deere
Nothing... you remaind very much at me!! usually I have the same problem, I have to take the photos behind the fence and I´ve been in trouble twice with the security guards. All you have to do when you´re a tractor freak!! By the way I really love your pictures, do you have some of a sugar cane farm in Florida? In 2002 I went there and saw some farms but I couldn´t stop and take pictures.
Keep risking your skin to take those baeutigul photos jaja.
Take care.

Re: John Deere
MB trac 1800 lifes for farmers here are not easier than in Germany and cheap imports from countries such as Mexico have made it hard for our vegetable producers. I hope that one day; U.S. consumers will choose to buy American produced goods instead of the imports.

I saw a tractor the other day on which the owner had written the following on the back window “Don’t Take American Farmers For Granted”. I was taking to a mechanic for a grower the other day; they work around 4,000 acres of land. He told me that last year the farm broke even and the year before they lost money. We had several hurricanes in 2004-2005 whom were very costly for our farmers. If you ask me bigger farms are not always better and more efficient than smaller family farms.

Support our Agriculture.

Unfortunately we also loose a lot of agriculture land to housing developments. (see photo above) They are not our typical home, rather large ranch homes.

Yes jdeere I took these photos in our beautiful state of Florida, not too far from here. Agriculture is our 2nd most important economic sector after tourism.

Victor I did post some photos of a sugar cane harvester that I took years ago. Just go to my history. We might go up to the sugar cane production area, in a few weeks.

Re: John Deere
We had the discussion about the required size of a farm earlier here and I don't think life as a farmer is easier when you have to farm these large areas. For sure nobody would if he hadn't to and I think I would prefer our small farms if I had the coice but when I see these big farms and machinery the child with the beady eyes comes out. E.g. all these beautiful and impressing machines erick1986 posted - every farmer over here would like to play with them. :-)

Re: John Deere
I totally agree with you MB trac 1800 large tractors and large equipment are always nice to look at and to dream about.
