Was the Deere 20 series 20% better?

05/04/2017

I read some discussion recently on whether the two cylinder 20 series tractors got their designation by having 20% more horsepower than their predecessors. Is this true? While Deere didn't boldly proclaim it they certainly hinted at it in some of their literature. You have to admit if the 620 wasn't thusly designated because it had 20% more power than the 60, it's a heck of a coincidence. After all they could have called it the 61 or 60A, "Super 60", "60 Plus",  "Green Wonder Machine" or a thousand other things.
