Just Announced: New Ertl Tractors

Ertl has just announced several new tractors arriving later this Fall including both Case and John Deere models. 

Case Tractors...

Case Tractors was founded by Jerome I. Case in 1844.  It was originally known as the J.I. Case Threshing Machine Company, with many name changes since then.

Today, Case is known as one of the world's largest brands for agricultural equipment. Below is just a peek of the many new Case Tractor Models available for Pre-Order.

John Deere... It all started with a plow!

John Deere was founded in 1837 by the one and only John Deere, blacksmith and inventor.  He was a typical blacksmith turning out hay-forks, horseshoes and other needed prairie life essentials.

However, he saw an opportunity to help the farmers near his home in Grand Detour, Illinois.  He knew it was difficult to plow with the sticky prairie soil, so he made a moldboard out of a second-hand blade.

Now, over 175 years later, John Deere is still manufacturing advanced equipment to help those who work the land.

Ertl has some great NEW John Deere models coming out later this Fall... have a peek at a few, pictured below.
