Drive Green To Find Your John Deere Tractor

Drive Green TruckThe Drive Green Utility Tractor Show blog is now official and public, so welcome! Let’s get started learning more about what this show is all about.

To start with, this is the truck that’s going to be pulling in to John Deere Dealers, starting in the Southeast. We’ve already got 45 locations scheduled in the coming months. You’ll always be able to find the upcoming locations here or on the John Deere Drive Green page. This custom tractor transporter will hold a variety of new John Deere utility tractors for display and ride-and-drives at each stop. You can see pictures of many of them in this online photo album.

To learn more about the show I spoke with Eric Hodson, John Deere Senior Writer, Public Relations. We were at the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention. Eric says the company wants you to know “that there’s a John Deere tractor for you at a price you can afford.” To prove it, he says, they’re taking the tractors to you so you have a chance to see them and drive them for yourself. These will be a range of 40 to 140HP tractors.
