"MY 450-ACRE FARM JOB IS EASIER WITH THIS BIG If GAS TRACTOR! Thafs what Dick Dahl, who farms near the edge of Swea City has to say about his new Allis- Chalmers 190 XT LP GAS tractor. Dick !s shown here ready to roll with a 5-bottom plow on his big tractor. "I like the lack of fumes, there's no smell — and this is a very comfortable tractor to operate", that's what Dick, who has been farming on his own for 4 years, has to say about it. Dick has variety, to say the least, in his crop farming operation. He's got corn, beans and oats, plus 55 acres of sweet corn being grown on a contract basis for the Stokely-Van Camp Co. Mr. Dahl is planning to go to a 6-bottom plow in the near future - and may add a built-on cab to his tractor, which was purchased late in March from Lmde Implement at Swea City. Dick;s tractor is capable of 90-plu. horsepower and will really turn out a lot of work - in a short time. Martin Dahl, Dick's dad, runs the Swea City Hatchery. Dick also has three conventional gas tractors - and they've been used much less since he bought his LP Allis-Chalmers. NORTH CENTRAL PUBUC SERVICE CO 10 EAST STATE STREET - ALGONA
