About the John Deere M

The first John Deere M Tractors went out of the factory gates in 1947 and they kept building them until 1952. The original price of the John Deere M Tractor was $1075 (1952). If you got it for less, you found a great deal! TractorJoe has plenty of John Deere M parts to keep it running. Be sure to look for any serial number comments in the part fit notes. In some cases, the John Deere M Tractor parts you need depend on your serial number. You can find the serial number on lower part of dash. Serial numbers include 10001 from 1947 models, 13734 from 1948, 25604 from 1949, 35659 from 1950, 43525 from 1951, 50580 from 1952, 55799 from final. They also have differential mechanical disc brakes. The 3-point hitch is very reliable. It is also worth noting that the transmission rear PTO runs at 550 rpms.

The John Deere M line consists of four different but similar vehicles: the M, MT (which is a tricycle version), MC (a crawler version), and MI (designed for industrial purposes). The JD M model, which began production in 1947, replaced the more popular LA 3 years earlier. The MT and MC were available later on. All models of the M Series in 1955 used a 1.6 liter, 2 cylinder petrol engine design and manufactured by John Deere providing just over 20 hp (not very much when you think of most recent lawnmowers from John Deere producing well over 20 hp). However, many refurbished John Deere M's today do not have the original engine but instead have had their engine replaced. As most John Deere enthusiasts already know, the MI model is not painted in John Deere’s traditional green and yellow. It instead sports a coat of all-yellow paint. The John Deere M was not a heavy-duty tractor when it was originally manufactured, but came in at 2,600 pounds (or 1.13 tons for those of you living across the pond). It measures 110 inches long and 51 inches wide. The John Deere M had 4 forward gears, maxing out at 10 mph (16.1 kph) going forward and 1.6 mph (2.6 kph) when reversing from its single reverse gear
