  • Celebrating 50 Years of Hydro with John Deere
    Beaver Dam
    Dodge County Fairgrounds, State Hwy 33
    9-5; 8-6; 8-1
    This summer, July 27-29, John Deere collectors and enthusiasts will gather near Horicon, Wisc. to celebrate the 50th anniversary of hydo-powered lawn and garden machines made by Deere & Company. The event will include a variety of exhibits featuring rare and highly collectible pieces, a swap meet, a daily parade of tractors, and memorabilia displays. Sponsored by John Deere Horicon Works and Lawn & Garden Tractor Magazine, the event is expected to attract thousands to the area. Although all models of John Deere lawn and garden tractors are welcome to exhibit at this free event, the center of attention will be the 1968 model 140. Roughly 9,000 140’s were made in 1968, all in Horicon, Wisc. and hundreds are expected to be on display. A special model of interest includes the U.S. Navy-issued model 140 that was built to work on air craft carriers in the early 1970s. Other highly collectible tractors to be displayed include the John Deere model 110 prototype built in 1962, a well-known branded prototype which used a John Deere Model 140 painted in construction yellow and custom color “patio” tractors that are now highly collectible machines. Also, many other brands will be featured with John Deere, Danseur, Gannon Earthcavator, Haban and Brinly attachments, all of which will be be put to work in the dirt at the fair ground horse arena. More than 1,000 John Deere garden tractors of all models will be displayed by collectors along with a variety of lawn and garden tractor memorabilia. An added feature of the show will include a collection of vintage John Deere snowmobiles. Event planners predict this will be the largest display of vintage John Deere snowmobiles ever seen. Of special interest to collectors and enthusiast will be question and answer sessions with John Deere employees who built many of the represented models of tractors, snowmobiles and attachments. John Deere factory tours will also be offered to attendees. The 50 Years of Hydro event is entirely free and open to the public. Attendees will also have access to food vendors, campsites and free parking.
