Pavilion Photos

I stumbled across some extra pictures from the John Deere Pavilion trip with Flat Stanley

I didn't post them before because Stanley wasn't in the shots, but they're definitely worth sharing.

A Waterloo Boy, the original tractors built in our Waterloo Works. We build 7000 Series, 8R Series and 9000 Series Tractors there today.

A Feller-Buncher from our Forestry Division. This bad boy means business– it was HUUUUGE.

An interactive display about the growing global population. I wish I had thought to shoot some video, because the numbers in the signs were changing FAST.
