    Dan Kauffman wrote on Wednesday, June 08, 2005 (PDT):
  • It's interesting to read some of the questions posed by some of the writers. With so many sources of info and history on the internet regarding the Waterloo Boy, its conception and outgrowth, one could spend the day researching these interesting subjects - and all of the Deere history - and answer their own questions. Like power. . .12 HP at the drawbar, 25 at the belt of the F; the R with one fwd speed & rev; the N with two fwd at 2 and 2.6 mph plus rev; etc. What does an R look like? ERTL makes precision classic models which could answer those questions. Models can be found on E-bay under Farm Toys. Do I get any change back from my 2c?

    w.thomson wrote on Thursday, June 10, 2004 (PDT):
  • The Waterloo Boy was the product of a stationary gas engine company in Iowa called the Waterloo Gasoline Engine Company, an outgrowth of Froelich's manufacturing of a tractor in Iowa. WGE Co was bought in 1918 by John Deere for 2.1 million, when they realized they'd better get into the gas tractor business.
    Russ Braaten wrote on Wednesday, December 10, 2003 (PST):
  • Is there anybody out there with pictures of the Waterloo Boy model R. I would like a picture of both sides, the front and the back if possible. Great Tractor

  • This was the only really tractor John Deere ever built and then it was built first in Waterloo, Iowa, by another firm! However, The Green Shall Prevail!

  • Found one - "in the flesh" yesterday! It sat in a show room, in its majestic beauty, and caught me complete off-guard. Never thought I'd be so near one!

  • In Waterloo town (Belgium), they look for a "Waterloo Boy". Can you help us to find one? They want to put him in the middel of a crossroad. So the tractor must not be in a good state. Please, write me if you know one. Thank you very much.
