We hosted a big meeting at Des Moines Works on Friday. My dotted-line boss's boss gave a presentation to HIS boss, who had flown in from Germany for meetings with factories here in the States.
When guests come in, the factory gets cleaned and decorated— with farm machines.
Enjoy the green-and-yellow goodness.
2510H in the foreground, and a 7760 Cotton Harvester behind it. The nice thing about John Deere events is that they're kind of hard to miss, even if you're not really sure where you're going. Just look for the green paint.
I wanted to get a picture of myself standing beside the 7760 so that you could get a sense of how friggen' big they are. Except, well, when I walked up to get an eye-level picture, I realized all 5'8'' of me (plus heels) could fit underneath with room to spare. So here's a shot from underneath.*
*just the walkway, with the machine safely parked and all parts locked out. Don't worry, safety folks!
