Twenty years ago. a two-plow tractor on the farm, stow and ponderous, with a limited range of usefulness, and coating twice as much as the new. modern models, waa considered sufficient Today, a farmer for the same approximate cash outlay can buy a speedy machine, with full equipment for Ullage, planting, cultivating, and harvesting machinery to go with it Thus, not only has the farmer's investment in farm machinery been materially reduced, but the equipment Jw buys is faster, better adapted to all kinds of farming. long lived, more dependable, more efficient, more versatile ... and all with a reduction of actual operating expense in fuel.
