It is the production of a Power-Trol foot control for John Deere tractors now being manufactured at the Weisbrod Implement Co. in FentOH. Les Weisbrod and Dean Cannon are partners in the enterprise. Cannon is the shop mechanic at^ the Weisbrod Implement. The device was first developed last year, and since then a patent has been applied for. The Power-Trol is pictured above as it is used on the tractors. The foot control is an auxiliary control to be used instead of the hand control and leaves-the hand free to operate other controls, keeps the tractor under better control, saves time and energy, fuel and wear on the engine and gives,, smoother operation. At the present time the two rtien have developed 150 dealers for the Power Trol, mostly in Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota, and with a jobber in Toledo, Ohio. There are two different models of the Power-Trol for different model tractors, and they are easily installed and the cost is reasonable.
