John Deere: 60 Years of Making Tall Grass Short

Residential lawn equipment—a John Deere milestone

Crestmead, Queensland (26 May, 2023) — John Deere is celebrating 60 years of manufacturing residential lawn equipment (RLE).

From the Model 110 in 1963 to today's range of new and exciting models in both residential zero turns and riding lawn tractors, John Deere continues to strive for quality and innovation for residential customers.

John Deere Australia and New Zealand Production Systems Manager, Stephanie Gersekowski, said the anniversary was testament to the lasting quality of green and gold equipment.

"For sixty years, John Deere has prided itself on giving customers the best equipment to make tall grass short, and a quality product they can depend on to get the job done," Ms Gersekowski said.

"In fact, we know there are customers still mowing their lawns today with Model 110 mowers built in 1963. This is confirmation of the product quality as well as the great support provided by John Deere dealers worldwide.

"We're excited to continue developing and designing the most effective equipment solutions for years to come."
