Actual work in the field over a period of years is the only real test. Ten years ago the first Oil Pull tractors were put on the mar ket. They went into the Northwest and Canada breaking prairie sod going against the toughest conditions a tractor can meet. Did they make good? The best answer is that over 7000 Oil Pulls are now in use, those sold ten years ago are delivering the same sure service as this year's machines.
