Which one would you choose? The Chip Foose John Deere 4020 or a John Deere 620 orchard model? Vote after the jump!

Chip Foose's John Deere 4020 is pretty kickass, but the reality is this: You needn't enlist the services of a famous pro rodder to get a slick-lookin' John Deere tractor. Take, for instance, the John Deere 620 orchard model shown above. Standard-issue 620s have a traditional tractor look to them, but the ones fitted with the additional orchard equipment have a streamlined appearance that looks like it's a set of giant-sized moon caps away from making a land speed record run at Bonneville.

In fact, all that extra bodywork has nothing to do with aerodynamics or improved performance; its shielding designed to let the tractor operate in an orchard without the tires causing damage to the the tree branches. So, not only does this 620 look great, it does so for totally functional reasons.

And so, we come to tonight's poll: Which one of these tractors would you rather have? Follow the jump and declare your Deere.

      Stupid suburban soccer-mom tractor drivers never even plow fields with these things...how wasteful. All that torque just to go to wall-mart. No one needs a tractor, they should be driving a Prius.

      there is this women who can't drive a car whatsover but she knows how to drive a john (no sarcasm). It was weird seeing her arrive to a grocery store in a tractor. This is in a farm environment with dirt roads.

      Does the Foose go street speeds? Because if it does then it has my wholehearted vote. I hate being stuck behind a tractor, especially the poop shooting variety.

      Massey Ferguson here.

      John Deere is a loser.

      Hmm. Interesting turn here... TractorBlog?

      At least you didn't make a video with "She thinks my tractor's sexy" playing in the background. Dam Chesney.

      I have a confession to make. For as much as I love sports cars (and generally despise SUVs and over-large vehicles), I have a soft spot in my heart for tractors. Why? it's a highly-refined purpose-built vehicle that's meant to be driven, used, and worked on.

      My personal favorite is this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:New_Holland_tractor.jpg
      I just can't help but be impressed.

        I have to agree with your post. Me too.

      You've got to have a colossally slow day to get this on your blog.

      I wanna see a John Deere with a fart can and a spoiler so it can keep traction in the 100 mph sweepers. That's the logical progression, right?

      Orchard tractors have ALWAYS been the coolest lookers. Kinda like the "Speedsters" of tractors.
