I wish I had some time to put one together. The time line would start, of course, with the 1963 110. 1966, JD added the 60 and 112, as well as the 110H. 1968, JD redesign the 110 and the 112, and JD added the 140. 1969 the 70 replaced the 60, and JD came out with the custom color lines. 1970 & 1971 JD made the 120. In 1972, JD made a minor redesign of the 110 and 112 with larger frames, and choice of the 8 hp or 10 hp Kohler on the 110, while the 112 got the 12 hp Kohler as standard. 1975, JD brought the 200 series to replaced the 110/112, the 100 lawn tractor replaced the 70, the 300 replaced the 140, and the big change, JD brought out the 400. 1978, the 316 replaced the 300, while JD made the 312 in 1977 and '78. 1979, JD replaced the 312 and 316 with the 314 and 317 respectively, and the 108 and the 111 replaced the 100. 1982 JD added the 116 to the 108/111 line. 1983 saw the arrival of the 318 as the 317's replacement and the 420 replaced the 400. 1984 the 316 replaced the 314, and the 430 was added. 1985 the 112L was added to the 108, 111 and 116 line. 1986 JD added the 330 and the 108-116 line was replaced by the 130, 160, 165, 170, 175, etc. 1988 the 332 replaced the 330 and the 322 was added. I won't get into the newer 200 series - yet.

I Just came across this & thought it would be interesting for you JD Guys. I was surprised to see that the first Gt by Deere wasn't until 1963.
That chart has several inaccuracies in it. It's true 1963 was JD's first lawn and garden tractor (IH got into the L&G business in 1961). But, there are a lot of wrong dates in that chart. I wouldn't use that as a guide at all.

Anyway, if the info is False, sorry about that........

I knew that the info came from Deere. I would say that the list shows the productions dates, not the model dates, but that's not entirely accurate either, as I see discrepancies using that logic also. I've seen this list on mtf, and I pointed out the errors to them, and yet it still remains there as gospel (when it shouldn't be considered as such). I wish Deere would revise that chart, or give more detail on what those dates represent, i.e. production dates for these models, model dates for these models, etc.). I'm thinking someone in marketing made the list, but used data from various productions sources, therefore the inaccuracies in the list.
