ONE MAN OPERATES bOT -1 TRACTOR AOND IMPNN PLE NI-r' as .· . r -- r- e ,1',C U!VEPS.AL TRACTOR? U ED ·C With two 14-inch hottonm, utnder abrage plowing cinditions, the netw Moline Universal Tractor, Model D, plows 9 act es in 10 hotir, as much as ordinary 3-plow machine. The su perior efficiency of the Moline Uni versal is dnue to its higher speed, 3% miles an I',,ur, two bottoms at 3; miles gizing the same nume-r or plow-miles as three bottoms at 6t5 miles. Plowing at 3.,/ miles an l:our gives ideal results, the ground being pul verized more thoroughly than at slower speeds, with less air space. Tough sod that cannot be turned at all at 2;/ miles an hour is plowed with ease. Perfect work is assured with the Moline Universal through the advan tageous position of the operator, who sits on the implement, where he rm,::t sit in order to do good work. Tie Moline Universal is easily handled, turns short, and backs as readily as it goes forward. Waste of time in the field is elimi nated and the tractor kept at produc tive work a maximum number of hours a day through a complete elec tric starting and lighting system. The Moline Universal is the only tractor thus regularly equipped. The secret of the speed and power of the Moline Universal lies in its perfected overhead-valve engine and two-wheel construction. The engine dtvelops 18 horsepower at the belt, ar1l 9 at the drawbar, every ounce of ' :ch is availal'e for pull. There are no (lead wheels to drag along that o:.!:, carry weight and steer. For plowing in extremely soft ground, the Moline Universal is equipped with a differential lock that enables the two drive wheels to be locked together, doubling their pull ing power. When plowing the land wheel is raised so that the tractor is level. The wheel is very easily and quickly raised or lowered. ,The light weight of the Moline t uliversal, 3Sot pounds, and its high clearance, : 29 in:rles, make it adapt ed for all o0hcr field work, besides plowing. W\ith it one man can plant 40 acres a day, cultivate 20 acres a day, harvest 25 acres a day, or do any other work with equal speed. It is the ideal tractor for any sized farm, practically eliminating horses and solving the farm help problem. Ca!l and let us show ygur this re *narkable imachine.
