It has all the advantages of the usual "ridmg"

more skipped weeds and ruined
hills that cut down your crops.
Whether you walk or ride, this
marvelous machine, with a
mighty small effort on your
part, "jumps" stray hills, saves
the corn, gets the weeds and

Any 9 or 10 year old kid can handle it.
When tired of ridmg get off and walk. Tip the
seat forward out of the wayadjust the handles to
suit. And you have a perfect walker.

The corn hills you save by using the Perfection
will quickly pay the difference between the Perfection
price and what you can get for your old cultivator.
