Wagener must be related to Wagner, my last name.  I know my family came to America in the 1710's: I guess we still have cousins in Germany!

 

Ben W.

 You'll find both ways to write this name. Wagner is a profession, formerly this people build waggons.

That's pretty cool map, thanks. We've traced some of our ancestry back to late 1700's but that's as far as we can find.

I forget exact town my great grandparents came from, have to look it up when I get home. They came to USA in 1880's

Now I have to take particular offense at any denegration of John Deere for using plastic in their tractor production. It is a well known fact that John Deere's "Xenoy" and "NORYL" plastics are "strong and reduce noise" and it is well known that JD wants it's owners to have the very best tractor owning experience that can possibly be. In fact, like most manufacturers in today's market, JD goes to great length to see that it uses plastics in as many places on it's tractors as it possibly can! Once again assuring the owner of a high value in a very competitive market. I defy anyone to compare JD's plastics to any other tractor brand and find their plastic deficient or used in fewer places than any other comparable brand offered.

 

The proven weight savings of the increased use of plastic parts allows JD owners to customize their tractor's weight exactly to their needs by purchasing aftermarket steel wheel weights, suitcase style steel hanging weights or filling the tires with otherwise useless beet juice. The use of this fluid helps other members of the Agriculture Industry increase their bottom line in a difficult current market, yet another benefit of JD's total awareness of today's marketing necessities. As everyone will no doubt agree, the trend is to more and varied creative uses of plastic across the entire spectrum of the tractor industry and John Deere evidently is proud to lead the way.*

Plastic is everywhere, all brand, and in engines too!  Dang plastic camshafts!  I do have to say, JD plastic components are prohibitively expensive!!!!

When they do you can bet every other mfg'er will follow suit, they're just waiting for JD crack (oops, poor choice of word there!) researchers to break the ice.:D 

 

I don't mind plastic anymore... because I can't get "metal" anymore.  I might just as well go with the rest of the crowd here in the new age market.  Besides, when's the last time you saw a Gravely L with a backhoe?  Steel is so.... outmoded and terribly "in the past" these days.  Why even the French are scrapping the old iron Eifel Tower in favor of a new one made of plastic recycled from Evian water bottles.  But I think they're just trying to out do London's refitting "Big Ben" with the new digital clock face next year.  Anything to garner the tourist Dollar/Euro I guess.

You guys are killing me. :D

I will say the plastic hoods were not the best idea,  2 outta of the 3 JD's i've worked on had busted hoods, but then Sears used fiberglass noses in the late 70's which most are cracked today if still around.

 

I started up the LT133 last night to unload from trailer....very short run. Sprayin gas from the fuel line, :(  looks like I have my first repair.
