Collector Has First Deere 3010, 4010 Ever Built
"They're the first tractors Deere ever built with a bigger-than 2-cyl. engine," says col-lector Kenny Smith about his Deere 3010 and 4010.
When Kenny says "first", he means exactly what he says because both tractors have the serial number 1000. That means they were the first of each series built by Deere.
Smith, who has 40 Deere tractors ranging in years from 1934 to 1960, first saw the pair of tractors at the "Two-Cylinder Expo" in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1992. Completely restored, they were owned by a Deere collector in northeast Nebraska. A year later, the 4-cyl. 3010 and 6-cyl. 4010 went up for sale and Smith bought them.
"I keep them in my barn covered up with sheets and only take them to a few select shows," he says.
