The Moline Universal Tractor
A trncjor universal in its adaptability to farm traction power requirements
fnnde practical for' general farm field work is offered for i our consideration
ih power tliis tractor meets your demands to pull a Double Disc Plow or a
double disc barrow or a single disc barrow with a spike tooth harrow hooked
behind or to cultivate moy or perforin such other tractor work as he averngi
farm has to do. In size too this tractor follows the idqa that thousands of far-
mers hivc given us in the past few years a close coupled self contained ma-
chine ns light'as the traction power demanded could be obtained with. Again
in the simplicity of this Moline Universal tractor have we met the demands of
men who realise that farm machinery must be simplified to the utmost to meet
tho conditions on the average farm.
