John Deere recently rolled the five millionth lawn tractor off its assembly line at the Horicon, WI, U.S. plant. The five-millionth unit was a Select Series X700 Ultimate Tractor (pictured).

"Over the last 47 years, the John Deere Horicon Works has built a reputation for manufacturing durable and reliable products for millions of homeowners," said Dan Hoffman, factory manager, John Deere Horicon Works.

Production of the first lawn and garden tractors began at the Horicon facility in 1963. That year, John Deere built about 1000 of the Model 110 Lawn Tractor. An original 110 Lawn Tractor now resides at Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

Horicon reached the 1-million mark in May 1984, when a Model 318 lawn and garden tractor rolled off the assembly line. The 2 millionth unit, in 1992, was a Model LX188. The three-millionth, in 1998, was a Model LT133 lawn tractor. The four-millionth unit was produced in Horicon in March 2003.
