It was put on the market just about the time the Great Depression hit. Terrible failure. There are stories of Tractor Dealers with 3 & 4 teams of horses they took in on trade for these tractors. Most had a 4 cyl Hercules engine & (although underpowered) did exactly what they were designed to do. 4WD, Independent suspension, the cutting edge... years ahead of it's time.
There is a prototype 6 cyl unit in this area, really neat pc of equipment.

Those are weird, the first question to come to mind though, how do you get onto the 1st one?

That is awesome Gary. It appears to work well but must not have been competitive with track based designs that seem to have dominated the market. Thanks for the video link. Very interesting!
