What Edgefield's Fordson Owners Say
DURING the past year the Ford
, son Farm Tractor has demon
strated that it is the World Leading
Farm Tractor. Over 150.000 users
testify to this fact. The FORDSON
is revolutionizing farming. 1
The Fordson is being used as trac
tors have never been worked be
fore and for every purpose imagi
nable-plowing, discing, harrow
ing, rolling, drilling, ginning, hay
ing, harvesting, threshing, filling
silos, sawing wood, dragging and
grading roads, and many other
L. D. HOLMES
I have used the Fordson I pur
chased from you for about four
months and it has given entire satis
faction. I have used it to pull Mc
Lean Disc Harrow, to pull my binder
and to run thresher and with it I
threshed all my grain. It does good
work and all that has been claimed
for it. The only trouble I have had
at all has been some spark plug
trouble and I have been advised that
that can be remedied easily.
I am glad to recommend it to any
one desiring a good serviceable trac
tor at nominal cost of upkeep.

To Whom It May Concern:
This is to certify that I have pur
chased from Mr. H. G. Eidson one
Fordson tractor, and that 1 am well
pleased with same. It has been report
ed that I would be willing to accept
$50 less than same cost me, but that
report is absolutely false, in fact,
if I could not obtain another just
like it I would not take $50 more
than I paid for same. It has given
perfect satisfaction in every way,
and I highly recommend it as the
best tractor on the market at any
thing like its cost.
Trenton, S. C.
E. W. WILSON
In reply to your request, beg to
advise that I am entirely satisfied
with the Fordson Tractor I purchas
ed from you in the spring. It has
shown best results of anything on
my place, in the shape of farm ma
chinery. I can tell to the foot where
I started plowing with the Fordson,
and the results have more than jus
tified my purchase. The service on
tractor has been all that I could ask
for and has been given promptly.

J. w. COX
In the early spring of this year I
purchased from you a Fordson. The
service of this machine has been very
exceptional, both as to quality of
work and amount. It is easy to oper
ate and the operation is most effec
Spark plugs have caused some
trouble. Other than this the tractor
has been entirely satisfactory. My
tractor has done a vest amount of
work and I believe it to be practical
ly as good as new.
It is a pleasure to recommend it.

P. B. DAY,JR.
The Fordson tractor which I pur
chased from you last May has prov
en perfectly satisfactory with the
exception of some minor troubles,
which have been adjusted by you
without cost to me.
For field work, especially, I have
never seen any tractor that can sur
pass the Fordson.
I cut practically my entire grain
crop with it and sowed my peas with
a grain drill and I expect to cut my
hay, using this tractor in the place
. I can easily say that it will cover
'from 25 to 75 per cent more ground
in cutting grain thar, mules will.
. In using the Fordson the fuel costs
(be about 50 cents per acre.

W. P. JOHNSTON
I beg to say that I am an owner
of a Fordson tractor and that it has
given satisfaction, that I am well
pleased with it, and would not ba
without it for anything like it cost
me. I can tell the difference in my
farm where the tractor worked. It
has done all that you said it would
Johnston, S. C.
J. T. BARNES
I have used my Fordson for near
ly every kind of work done on the
farm and do not see how I could do
without it. It has given entire satis
faction. I have always been able to
get parts whenever needed, and I
highly recommend the Fordson to
any farmer desiring quality and ef
ficiency in a tractor.
Johnston, S. C.
G. T. SWEARINGEN
The Fordson I bought from >u
this spring has given me absolute
satisfaction. When I bought it I ask
ed that you teach one of my negroes
to run same, and the only trouble I
have ever had was from spark plugs
and that was minor.
If crops are not too short I intend
to buy another.

JAS. R. CANTELOU
The Fordson tractor bought of
you, I have used for the past season
for drawing grain binder, threshing
machine and double disc harrow;
it has given entire satisfaction, both
at the draw bar and belt work.
I find it practically indispensable
during the busy seasop, and a great
relief to my stock, especially in hot

R. N. BROADWATER
I have a Fordson Tractor giving
perfect satisfaction with grain drill,
grain binder, wood saw, disc harrow,
disc plow and ginning 10 bales of
cotton per day on 60-saw gin. I do
not see how any farmer can do with
R. H. NICHOLSON
Last spring owing to the lateness
of the season, I found it would be dm
p*ossible for me to prepare my land
with my horses and I purchased a
Fordson Tractor and harrow. I have
used my tractor for plowing, har
rowing and pulling a binder and have
found it perfectly satisfactory in
every vespect. My tractor has been
operated by one of my hired hands
and has not given me any trouble
at ali. I think it will be economy for
anyone operating a farm of any size
to purchase one of these tractors.

J. F. LOGUE
I purchased a Fordson some time
ago and am using it to do the follow
ing work: pulling disc plows, Boder
ick Lean harrows, wood saws, pulling
logs out of field and woods, also
grading the roads with a Martin
ditcher. Next year I intend pulling a
binder and threshing machine. I
heartily recommend it to .do any
kind of work on the farm.
W. L. DUNOVANT, JR. ?|
Over a year ago I purchased my
Fordson Tractor and I can truthfully
say that it has given me entire satis
faction and that it has done all that
I asked it to do.
This tractor was purchased several
months before you were appointed
Fordson Dealers and I, therefore?
could not expect you to give service
on my machine, though it has requir
ed very little attention.
I wish to take this occasion to
thank you for the service you have
given me and I believe that yow
could not have looked after me bet
ter had I bought it from you.
