There are actually 3 very different John Deere 70’s. The first is the tractor built in the 50’s, the other is the modern harvester built and produced today and the last and least known JD 70 is a 7 hp ride on lawnmower produced in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Most people know the JD 70 as the classic tractor built and produced in the 1950’s, so we this review will be based on that tractor.

The John Deere 70 originally entered production in 1953 as a replacement for the the John Deere G. Like many JD tractors at the time, it came with one of 4 motors as standard.

  • A 2 cylinder, John Deere, gasoline engine capable of producing 50.4 hp
  • A 2 cylinder, John Deere, all-fuel engine capable of producing 45 hp
  • A 2 cylinder, John Deere LP gas engine capable of producing 52 hp
  • A 2 cylinder, John Deere diesel engine capable of producing 51.5 hp

It weighed between 6,035 lbs (or 2737 kg for those of you in Europe) and 6,510 lbs (or 2952 kg) depending on which engine was in the machine. It had a length of 137 inches (347 cm) and a width of 86.625 inches (220cm). These dimensions make for a small tractor nowadays. However at the time, theĀ  John Deere 70 was actually quite a large tractor.

There were also a number of variants of the JD 70 built: the 70D (diesel) which has been included above, the 70 S (high crop) and the 70S (wheatland).
