The other night I caught a quick peek of a round fender J.Deere perhaps a 110 or 112 in a promo not sure if a movie or TV show , not seen it repeated again . The scene showed someone seated on the Deere being knock from the seat , Did any one else see this ?

I'm guessig what you saw was a clip from a recent episode of "Mad Men". I don't follow it, but it takes place inthe early '60s and depicts ofice life in an ad agency. Apparently the premise of that episode was that the ad agency landed a new client (JD) so they were having an office party to celebrate. Somebody brought in a 110 Round Fender as a prop, and a mishap ensued.

A family member told me about it, and I was able to spool some clips via the internet. Looking it over, the 110 was a real nicely restored one, but it was not 100% correct. Among other things, it had non- stock, plus-sized rear tires/wheels. I think it was a 4speed, too, but the episode is supposed to be taking place in 1963 when the 110 had a 3 speed. There was something funny about the mechanical lift lever too....

In that Mad Men scene, I think they bent the lift lever outwards so it wouldn't block the actor. And, I don't think JD was pleased.

There has been a lot of discussion about the riding mower incident in the most recent episode of Mad Men: "Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency." AMC can confirm that John Deere was not involved in the creation of the episode, and John Deere offered the following statement in response to the show:

"John Deere did not participate in the development of this episode. The company does not approve of unsafe use of its equipment."
