Select a Tractor as you would a Horse or Mule INTERNATIONAL TRACTORS are not make-believe Tractors. They are finished products of the greatest manufacturing institu tion in the world, they are marketed in a complete way and jiot left to buy in pieces as you find you need them. Compare the working parts of International 8-16 Tractor, with the supposed competition that pretends to market a farm tractor. Are you interested in the Removable Cylinder Sleeves, the large Connec ting Rods the Fenders the Platform on which to put your feet or stand the Brakes the Governor the Adjustable Draw Bar the large Main Bearings with bronze backs the Dust Pan and the many other features that actually exist and are a part of the regular equipment on the International 8-16 Tractor. Are you interested in the weight of the Tractor you buy, and is this weight equally distributed? Are you interested in the safety of yourself or the man you select to run your Tractor? Did you ever hear of an International Tractor "RARIN" back and killing or injuring the driver? Do you know many such accidents happened in the United States during the past three years, or even in your own neigh hood? Count them right at home. Replacement parts for International Tractors are not toys, and not sold at toy stores, but you will find them at thousands of real Implement dealers "service stations" right handy to your farm; and 92 branch houses of the Harvester Company are backing these local stations with experienced men to serve you. Mr. Tractor Prospect: Ask the International Dealer for a demonstration, try out the International 8-16 Tractor, request the competitor to bring his Tractor and do the same, or equally as good work. You will be surprised to find out the difference between the two Tractors when you get them where you can actually compare them, and besides all this, you are "safe" in using an International.
