Row-Crop tractor





The MT is a tricycle version of the model M. It was the first Deere tractor to feature dual-control Touch-O-Matic hydraulics, allowing each side to be raised independently. The MT was available with a single front wheel, dual front wheels, Roll-O-Matic, or adjustable wide-front. The Roll-O-Matic was designed to reduce shock in the front end of the tractor.
