History:

John Deere produced this multipurpose tractor between 1956 and 1958. It was part of the 20 series, a line of tractors that featured more fuel-efficient engines, improved hydraulic controls, greater operator comforts, and — for the first time — a two-tone colour scheme in green and yellow. The “720 LP” was a variant that used liquid propane as its fuel source. Only a small number of 720s, however, were equipped with this feature.
