  • Bob Trail, do you still have the JD 60 Orchard? Anyone know what a clean JD 1958 820 Black Dash is worth these days? Thanks in advance for your response.

  • Converting Standard to Orchard. The tyre size differ (30" on standard and 26" on orchard). Also the front axle is not curved as muck in the orchard, to make it lower. The standard I had also ha an upright air intake and the orchard had a low air intake (just a bulge on the bonnet. Standard had fender mounted headlights and orchard one low mounted light below grille

  • JD O Model 60; If my math is correct John Deere only made 260 of the orchard 60 models. From John Deere Tractor Data Book Page 104 Author Lorry Dunning If you have a JD O Model 60 its got to be a keeper. 37hp and what a sound!

  • I just love the sound of a 60 orchard model oulling a plow up the hill. I was raised in the orange belt of central Florida. At that time most of the lakes were surrounded by orange groves. I have spent many a day sitting on the lake with my Dad and brother-inlaw, listening to them chug up and down the hills. whenI hear one run today it brings back verry good memories Bama

  • I heard that if you have a 60 standard, and you find some orchard fenders, you can make it an orchard. The problem is is that the serial number tag won't say it's an orchard.

  • Wrot on feb 9 I have a john deere 60 orchard. I got it when I was 5. It don't have the orchard fenders on it. My grandpa took them off.

  • I need to know if the 60 orchard and the 60 standard are basicaly the same tractor.I have a 60 standard and in need of a shifting fork set. If anyone has any leads on one,please contact me. Thank you.
    Ron wrote on Friday, September 17, 1999 (PDT):
  • The "things" over the wheels are fenders that protect low-hanging tree limbs and fruit from being broken or rubbed-off while the tractor works in the orchard. This and its predecessor, the AO, were the favorites on my family's New York and Michigan orchards. Excellent for pulling spray rigs, disc harrows and other implements up and down orchard hillsides. Today's Deeres have more convenience features and are easier to operate, but none have the character and "feel" of this old standby.

  • What are the things over the tires ? What were they for ?
