MC Crawler

 

In 1946 Deere advised Jesse that they were going to discontinue the Model BO. It was suggested they would welcome the pursuit of the possibility of converting their new Model M to tracks. They sent him a Model M chassis, and he converted it into a crawler. Col. Wiman along with P. Murphy came out in November of 1946 to see the conversion Jesse had done on the Model M. They ended up having a race between a BO and the newly converted Model M Crawler. Wouldn’t you know it the Col won and it wasn’t because he was the boss, the BO has a faster gear ratio. Upon completing the Model M conversion, Deere and Company made an offer to purchase Lindeman Power Equipment Company.
