Hi all, can anyone tell me if the H model bulldog is considered a John Deere cross over? This is what I was told. I am researching as I am keen on adding one to the collection next month from an Auction.

I have not seen too many at all.

Best,

Greg

Not sure what you mean by cross over model. Deere appears to have taken over Lanz in 1956. I do not see production after that but my reference is only one book. The H seems to be a series rather than an individual model. Vern

Hello and welcome Greg. I can't say from a collectors standpoint as not many Bulldogs made their way to the states.
In my 54 years I've not seen one in person. My opinion is, until they started sharing Deere technology, not just paint, they were Lanz.
Good luck at the auction, hope you bring it home. If so share some photos of it with us.
In my world a Lanz with most likely remain my fantasy tractor along with a Chamberlain. ;)

Vern, the Australian designation of the D7500 Bulldog built in the 50's was the model H.
I think this is the model he is asking about. http://www.flickr.com/photos/branxholm/4094362218/

Hello Greg; like Big Dave i have never seen a Lanz; although there were a few, a very few that made it to the states. Here may be a good starting point for You. Theres a lot of Lanz photos availible here. Also You may want to check out the links pages, as there are several Lanz links provided. Now the links incude more than one language; however many of them rovide pages in English. Hope this helps and welcome to the forum. Ooops i forgot to post the link http://www.dynapay.com.au/tony/lanz/index1.htm
