Steady, light, alert, power to spare, economical of
operation. Watch a Fordson Tractor in action and you
will wonder how those apparently contradictory quali
ties, of strength, lightness, power and speed could ever
be combined in one unit.
The Fordson's speed is available tor hauling heavy
loads for long distances. Its power is available for drag

for running the cutting-box, grinder or threshing
Wc take pride in handling such a campact, portable power plant
We are equipped with every facility for giving quick service for
