About This Quiz

Can you tell a tiller from a baler, or a tractor from a tedder? Think you know the difference between a draper and a harvester, or a scraper and a sprayer? Take our quiz to see if you can match this John Deere equipment to its intended function!

John Deere was just a simple blacksmith in 1837 when he got word that local farmers were having trouble using equipment designed back east to work the land in the Midwest. The idea inspired him to start producing farm equipment, and within 5 years he was manufacturing more than 100 tractors a year. Since then, the company has introduced hundreds of pieces of agricultural equipment, allowing modern farmers to work huge parcels of land in a fraction of the time it took their ancestors.

Of course, that famous green and yellow machinery has also expanded well beyond the confines of the farm, and is now used in forestry, construction, lawn care and a host of other applications. In fact, Deere has expanded so much beyond the humble tractor that it can be hard to identify some of the specialized equipment the company manufactures. Think you're up to the challenge?
