FAHS Students Sound Off on Tractors

Posted on January 3, 2013 by


Fleetwood is surrounded by farms and farmers, and many students at Fleetwood have an opinon on which farm equipment is best. 
“International!  I prefer a white tractor,” student Ryan Bubbenmoyer said

An International tractor is a white tractor with red lettering.  On the other hand, quite a few students prefer a John Deere tractor. A John Deere tractor is green and yellow. People who are not farmers, or who have not worked on a farm, still know the tractor company John Deere.

“I would choose a John Deere tractor because I was raised around them and that is all my uncle has,” student Ryan Kline said.

Yes, there is a difference between color and brand name, but there is also a difference in size, make, and model.

One of the biggest John Deere tractors is the 9630 articulated, or tracked tractor, with a 13.5 liter John Deere diesel engine.  The largest International tractor being produced is the Steiger 535, at 535 horsepower, 589 peak hp with a 15-liter engine.
