The John Deere Model 720
The 720 was the successor to the Model 70 and the biggest visible difference between them was the new, two-tone, green and yellow paint job, even though the design of the sheet metal is still the same as the Model 70. The sheet metal was redesigned again, and will look different on the Model 730.
The 720 was produced from 1956 to 1958.
The new "Float-Ride" seat was introduced on these tractors.
The engines were completely redesigned to provide more horsepower.
This 720 is a "Standard". Notice the fixed width front end. Also notice the bulge in the front frame. This is how you can tell at a glance that it is not a 520 or a 620. This 720 also happens to be a diesel. You can see the teardrop shaped flywheel cover. The 720 was available in the "rowcrop" front wheel configurations, the "Standard" front end, and also as a "Hi-Crop". The 720 was also available in all of these versions with a gas engine, all-fuel engine, diesel engine and an LP gas engine.
