Hey there! I wanted to see if anyone has done any custom work to the Ertl Deere stuff. I got tired of my Deere’s looking so blah next to everything else. Here’s a pick of my 850K I just started

Yes, Exkvate, Deere is a real company and that is their logo. They make many machines from giant excavators down to lawnmowers. Their logo is a deere , you know what they look like don't you? They sometimes have horns and they run very fast. CAW

Quinella thank you for that information I have never heard of Deere, first one I have seen but I thought they had some fur on them. However I was talking about the logo for American Demolition. My next post to Ken would have been is Deere a real equipment manufacturing company, but thanks for clearing that up. You are truly one of the biggest assets to this forum and Chuck is lucky to have participate hereyour knowledge is undeniable.
I’m sorry Ken I should have explained my question better, the “school marm” cleared that up for me.
Thank you Craig.

Steve,

American Demolition is a real company located in northern Ohio and that is their "logo" if that's what you want to call it.

And just ignore that fool from Charlotte since he doesn't even know the difference between horns and antlers!

Wesserhutte: It is a sin to call someone a " fool. But since I don't hunt, I admit I don't know the difference between horns and antlers. I'm a city slicker. I feed the deer in my yard. CAW

Thanks Mike. Thanks Steve, American Demolition is a large Chicago based company. I hauled their iron around for years. They have mostly Cat equipment, but had to purchase some JD 450's when they were working at Deere in Moline, IL.Whistle

Barkerjoh, sorry those hydro lines are a trade secret! Just kidding. Go to a craft store such as Pat Catans. There is a brand called Darice that makes stretchy cord that comes on small spools. It comes in different size diameters. They have as small as .5mm , 8mm and up. It works perfectly. Mike

Ken and Wesserhutte thanks for the information on the demo company.

Wesserhutte it is very hard to ignore Quinella because he has so much knowledge, even though it is useless it is still knowledge.

Quinella I always thought those were PETERBUILT 18 wheelers on my front lawn at 2 in the morning making all that noise. Now I know it was not an air horn but a deer horn, the things I learn from you everyday.
