The John Deere B tractor is a rare collectors item because it was manufactured for nearly 20 years from 1935 to 1952, which is almost an unheard of period given today’s manufacturing times.

However, there were many iterations of the JD B. The original design was a midsize row crop tractor, while variations include:

The John Deere BR came out the year after other riders, in 1936. The prototype fixed thread had wider front wheel base than earlier models.

The John Deere BO is a specific model of the BR for use in orchards. The ‘O’ stands for Orchards and the ‘R’ for Regular.

The John Deere BI was introduced in 1936 as a variation of the ‘B’ model, but it was notably different from what we normally see with John Deere.

The John Deere BI was instead painted yellow.

The John Deere BO Lindeman was the last variation in the ‘B’ model series. What made it different from others was that instead of tires/wheels, it had crawlers.

In 1938, John Deere authorized adaptations of the orchard/’BO’ model were manufactured by Lindeman Power Equipment Company. These crawlers had JD's permission to be altered through 1946.

There are still many John Deeres around today. For those lucky enough to have one, it is considered a collector's item so they usually don't use it very often or take care of it too much, preferring instead to showcase rather show off the rarity.
