This is a little collection of illustrated articles about some of
the implements and attachments that were contemporary to the Model B Tractor.
We actually USE this equipment to take care of our farm, and we have FUN doing it! We wouldn't advise this for a commercial farm, even a small one. Old equipment is a bit "fragile" to say the least. If you break something it can get very expensive and time consuming to find a replacement part.
If you are interested in farming yourself, did you know that you don't have to go out and immediately BUY all the equipment you need to get started? There are flexible financing and accommodating equipment lease plans available.
