Subject: John Deere branded tools


Central Texas
Local dealership has started selling the montezuma style boxes loaded with John Deere tools. Pricing is reasonable considering the cost of putting together a full box piece by piece. Anybody use deeres new tools enough to gauge quality? I like a bargain but I can't stand low quality tools.

We have Deere wrenches in one of the PU boxes. They've survived Brad. Brad can break an anvil with an egg. J

I have several sets of the fully polished longer wrenches. Have several sets of sockets too. I've had no trouble with them. I hate the ratchets though.

I know caseih are made by snap on or bluepoint. But I was told that Deeres were made by Stanley. But it may have changed or I heard wrong

CaseIH are Snapon. I've been told they are identical to their Bule Point line. I've got a few odds and ends and they have been good.

I do have a full set of metric and standard wrenches from Deere. So far so good. Also have 2 small sets of sockets in 3/8" drive. One metric and one standard. Good as well.

I've got a set of matte finish Deere branded wrenches in our shop. No problems at all. FWIW, I have Craftsman and a few sets of Genius wrenches sold by Five Star Shop Service which haven't given me trouble either. Some of my Northern wrenches have rounded out at the open end.

Worst God awful wrenches I have/had are labeled Wisdom Tool. Real junk.

My tools are 90% john deere. Have some craftsman, sk, Stanley. ..ect. I prefer the jd tools and they have lifetime warranty :). Never ask questions even when its obvious that I a 10ft cheater on them lol.
Snap on wrenches hurt my hand after awhile due to there more squared off edges.

The first set of wrenches I ever bought were wisdom brand. Cheap wrenchs that cut in to your hand when you use them. Somehow I still have the set. They say guaranteed forever just not sure where you would even go to get one replaced.

Depends on box size, anywhere from $900-$1200. Deep and regular sockets in 1/4,3/8,&1/2, maybe 3/4 too. Box end wrenches, both metric and sae, multiple pliers, screwdrivers, Allen wrenches, etc. pry bars, hammer, pick set, extensions, chisels....I'm sure I leaving several things out. I've looked at buying a box and then putting what I want in it, and can get to what Deere is selling these for pretty quickly. Thanks for all the reply's.

Yes, they are great about warranty.

If you consider getting a replacement of whatever rebranded Chinese crap they have that week, a warranty.

Bought a 3/4" socket set 15 years ago or so, no problems, was a little surprised to see Taiwan stamped on everything though.

Think you are right.  Not sure if they invented the nut and bolt before or after the wrench.  Kind of like the chicken and the egg.  :)

I have a various assortment, ( wrenches, sockets, screw drivers, punches ) and I have abused many, either by using impact on chrome ones or cheater handle on the ratchets and wrenches, and so far not much different than a Craftsman as I would compare to. Years ago when I worked at dealership I thought Stanley was the parent company that made them, but things change so quick now, I cant tell you for sure.
I usually grab one of my Deere's to make a good special wrench or tool, as its easier for me to reorder another in and pickup with my parts, and much cheaper than using one of my Snap On or MAC's.

They are closer to the Williams side than the snap on side.

I have a set of long end wrenches (not the old ones made by Bonney) and I like them. They are made in the USA. Most of the Deere tools are made in Taiwan or China. For the money I think most of them are OK.

Slicker than a Yes album.
A little while ago, one of Deere's set of wrenches was American, the other Taiwan. (One made the chrome finish, the other brushed, can't remember) I like mine for the most part. Their crescent wrenches are great, and seem to open that last little bit to get around larger nuts and bolts.

Some prices on here can be lower, but usually the dealer can't/won't drop it much.

I have a mixture of wrenches, depending on where they are used. In the shop I have both Snap-on and John deere full polish sets. I find myself picking up the John Deere wrenches most often. I think the Snap-on wrenches are a better quality wrench but the Deere ones feel good in the hand. I have about the same money in either set because I mostly buy Snap-on used off Craigs list and buy the Deere stuff new. The Snap-on stuff will always bring my money back no so with the Deere.

I have a set of polished wrenches, ratchet wrenches, set of nut drivers, HD pick set, a vice, and a few other odds and ends. Love the wrenches. They are longer than your standard wrench which I like. The nut drivers are longer too. The size and brand that is printed on the handle of the nut drivers wears off easily, but the size is also stamped on the steel. The vice I was most disappointed with. Looks identical to a cheap one we had already. Paint was poor also.

I have 4 sets of there half inch socket sets. Most of the time I use them with the impact gun, and no problems so far. I also have a set of ratchet wrenches, I love them. No problems with jd tools, I quit buying craftsman wrenches.
