Notice the spiral rails on the rim of this tractor rear wheel. Engine power matches tread with the row spacing. It is just, a matter of minutes until you •are cultivating. Here is another way that field work has been made easier and quicker, leaving more time for the farmer to enjoy his family and the good things of country living. This hydraulic platform for the tractor saves half the lifting normally required to get feed and fertilizer out in the field where it can be used. The platform also may be used to move service equipment, fuel oil, and milk cans. The low-bed trailer is popular for moving farm machinery. There was a time when a city man could almost recognize a farmer by the bruises on his knuckles. Now tractor hitches do not require a wrench to change from one implement to another. In fact, implement adjustments are made by hand cranks or turning buckles. This is another way that field work is made easier and faster. Time and energy are saved for other things. One way large tractors make field work easier is doing several jobs in one operation. Here seeding and fertilizing are done at the same time. Some people do two operations at the time of plowing, but usually the load on the tractor is too great for this. Often several seedbed preparation jobs can be done at one time. • •for TWINE-TIE FARM-SIZE TWINE OR WIRE BIG TONNAGE TWINE OR WIRE BIG BALE baling at its best Makes 14 x 18 biles up to 42 inches long, twine-tied to stay tied.
