Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...(1) a 7-inch plow, (2) a 6-inch harrow, or an 8-blade, 12inch disk harrow, (3) sweeps, (4) disks, (5) a knife weeder, (6) disk hoes, (7) diamond pointed shovel, (8) a corn shovel, (9) a spring tooth for cultivating, (10) beet hoes, (11) a bull tongue, (12) an onion digger, etc., and all of which are shown at A and B in Fig. jo.

When you want to plow again all you have to do to start the point into the ground is to pull up a small trip chain which is fastened to the spring latch and this brings it at an angle so that it will dig in and it will go in to whatever depth you adjust it for. The speed of the tractor when plowing is from % to 2Y2 miles per hour depending on the soil and it only takes about 2 gallons of gasoline to plow right along for 10 hours. The Power Take Off.--The Beeman tractor will do anything in the way of belt work that any four horse power engine will do and, different from a stationary engine, it will do it anywhere. With the power take off you can run a feed grinder, pump-jack, washing machine, milking machine, cream separator, fanning mill, onion topper, feed cutter, circular saw, corn shelter, grindstone, emery wheel, and even...show more
