John Deere Tractors were used to work on the Argentine field since the early days of the 20th century.
John Deere played a central role in the evolution of field work in the US when he first invented the self cleansing plow and latter on when his company created gas and diesel tractors, working on as a turning point in history in the transition of steam to new and modern power means. He and his companies were history makers not only in the States but also in and around the world.
The early John Deere tractors imported to Argentina were brought to these fertile Pampas lands by visionary Ranch owners seeking to improve their own lands and their productivity.
John Deere's most popular tractor, the Model A, began production in 1934.
This spawned a popular line of two-cylinder tractors including the B, G, L, LA, H, and M.
John Deere continues to produce tractors to an amazing extent. Such is the case that if we were to list the entire model list we would find ourselves doing this John Deere history for years and years to come.
The American John Deere models were brought to be produced in Argentina during the mid 1950s after the second presidency of the famous Juan Domingo Peron. The combination between the end of World War 2 and the overthrown of Peron from the government provided a very good scenario to begin with local tractor production.
The change within the economy plan and prospective future made this venture even more interesting and profitable. Just a couple of years before John Deere relocated the German firm Lanz was taken off the market because of it's political implications in the international armed conflict, and then it was taken by John Deere Argentina. In 1958 the first Argentine John Deere tractors would enter the local market and they would enjoy an immediate success that will remain in constant growth till these days.
Together with this great turn within the farm industry in Argentina, the toy industry began a golden era of industrialization and mass production. Toys are a reflection of reality, and at that time, our rural country side was growing at an extraordinary rate, positioning Argentina very well in the world.
Many of the most important toy factories such as Duravit, Mataraso, Saxo, Buby and even Muky made farm toys or farm related toys.
Sigomec was the main producer of John Deere inspired toys, but not the only one. John Deere tractors were made in all scales and sizes, using all sorts of materials from die cast to plastic. We have been able to find John Deere scale reproductions made out of resin as well as popular home made versions of the original tractor made out of handy materials by parents and grown ups for the family youngest members.
Given the role they played in several generations' childhood and due to the fact that we're talking about the early days of Argentina's toy industry all toys related to this period are an "excellent find" for any Farm toy collector. This period from the 50's to the 70's are known as the vintage period for any collector.
