BN design: Single front wheel front end

A “high crop” version of the single wheel tricycle, two wheel tricycle and wide tread options became available in 1938. These were the BNH, BH and BWH models. Last late styled BN was May 29, 1952. 1952 was also the year the Model B was replaced by the model 50, which shares the same 190 CID Engine.

The 1930s and 1940s saw a large number of different John Deere models emerge, as small farmers emerging from their Depression troubles increasingly turned from horses to tractors. John Deere’s GM model was introduced in 1942, and was made until 1947. Power was increased to 38 hp and a new 6-speed transmission was also added.

After the Models A and B got new styling, both tractors were given a 6-speed transmission in late 1940. The A was 29 hp out of a 321 CID engine while the smaller B was both 18 and 23 hp reflecting the earlier and later updates between 1938 and 46.
