I'm really glad John Deere changed the paint scheme of the red and yellow 110. I just can't get excited over that prototype color combination. (No offense Brandon).

 

Lots of nice stuff, and lots of really rare stuff. Thanks again guys for posting pictures!

As I understand it Troy, Deere did it to keep the competition from easily recognizing it in the fields working and testing. I read that somewhere, but don't remember where.

Daniel..............You are CORRECT...................we took a buttload of pics ( I should say that CJ took a buttload of pics)  I posted most of them on my Facebook page but havent taken the time to upload them to Photobucket (probably because I dont care for Photobucket) and because Webshots totally screwed up their website.

 

Danie, have you ever heard of Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana?  We stopped and did the tour on the way home Monday.

That is the same thing that I have been told. Also there is no John Deere name on the tractor.  From what I understand is that they did some of the testing in Florida.

Yeah, heard a lot & seen video of that tiny little dairy.  Who in their right mind wants to milk 5,000 cows at a single location, plus have another the same size!!   NOT me!

From what I understood, there are 5 different locations and the one that we visited was milking 2800 PER DAY and that is THREE Times a day................definitely a neat operation.  I still want to shadow you when I come up for the plow day.

 

I will see what I can do about uploading my pics on here. Will have to figure it out.

That's a nice looking little custom 70 Patio that you posted a picture of MAV. There are three 70's right now out in my garage, one is Caleb's (jdelfjunior), one is Sissy's (jdelfette), and one is mine. Caleb is currently restoring his to original spec's, and Shayna wants her done in fluorescent colors, but mine???? Hhmmm. We just might have to go this custom color route. I kind of like the look. Although, when I do mine over, it won't exactly have the same shape as a 70, or even the same tires and wheels. Let's just say, I have big plans for this little tractor, and when I'm done with it, it won't be so little anymore! :(  Maybe do a little Don Campbell on it! :smilewink:
