The story continued about a year later on a balmy, fresh andflower beautiful spring day when we journeyed west to Ft. Wayne,Indiana. It was there that we loaded up a historical jewel-abattered, torn and faded 1915 John Deere grain wagon-and headedback home to northern Ohio.
During the first World War, John Deere Wagon Works prospered, filling military wagon orders. Between World War I and World War II, wagon sales fluctuated with the farm economy. By the mid-1940s, though, farmers were looking for steel wagons with rubber tires. Wood wagon production at John Deere ended in 1947.

Deere & Co. quickly established itself as a market leader in wagon manufacture, acquiring highly regarded, established suppliers. Acquisition of Fort Smith (Ark.) Wagon Co., Davenport (Iowa) Wagon Co. and the Moline (Ill.) Wagon Co. in 1910-11 created a new platform: the John Deere Wagon Works.
Let your little ones take their hauling capability to the
next level with the John Deere Farm Wagon. Not only can the Farm Wagon attach
to any John Deere Children’s Riding Vehicle that includes a hitch, it also has
a detachable handle, making it a perfect standalone wagon. An easy to use end
gate lets children load and remove their haul from the wagon with little
effort. The Farm Wagon can hold up to 66 lbs., making it even easier to
transport almost anything their little heart’s desire.
