I dont remember the yrs , but dad had a small compact Deere about then that was turbo. I belive it was a 1050. I know this line also had a 750 and 850 tractor. There are a little biggger than a GT. We still have a 1055 now but its from the 90's. Seems to me that the first ones of these Deeres were powered with Yanmar engines.

How many people have looked at the post now and still "don't Know", that's a bad sign.

My brother had a small john deere in the early 90's with a bucket , box blade , belly mower , and a rear mower with turf tires. I'll ask him if it had a turbo and what mosel it was .

He bought it all new including a trailer to haul it on. Package deal,.

The person who stold it all about 7 months later .and his truck thought it waas a package deal also .

Found his truck a couple weeks later with a stolen 4 wheeler in it at Burger King . DUMB ! But never found anything else.

I forgot , my brother had $50.00 under the front bucket seat and it was still there.
