THE SQUARE TURN FARM TRACTOR
A Nebraska product, conceived and perfected by Nebraska inventors, manufactured in a Nebraska
factory with Nebraska capital behind it, officered and directed by Nebraska's ablest business men.
Whicluhas received the highest praise and acclaim by
all who have seen it demonstrated pronounced by me
chanics and fanners alike to be the ultimate farm power,
a tractor for big and little farms, the tractor which has
led tho entire field in all the National tractor shows all
over the country. The tractor that plows its four furrows,
turns in its own tracks and starts back while other tractors
are turning, the tractor which has the following exclu
sive features which place it in a class by itself, far ahead of
thorn all, and whoso features are protected from imitation
by eight broad patents.
1. SQUARE TURN. The Square Turn Tractor uses
a new patented transmission known as the "Giant Grip
Drive..' This device does away entirely with costly trans
mission and differential gear renewals, takes the place of
the clutch and makes the Square Turn Tractor the tractor
with the least number of working parts, it also makes it
possible to turn tho tractor in its own length, on less
ground and in less time than you can turn a two horse
2. TWO WAY. This patented transmission also en
ables tho operator to drive his tractor in either direction
at the same speed and power, making it the only two way
tractor on the market,
3. UNDERSLUNG PLOWS. The Square Turn
Tractor is the only tractor that carries its . plows where
they ought to bo, ahead and below the driver, in plain
view from tho driving seat. This enables the tractor to
plow closer to the fence than a team.
4. ONE MAN TRACTOR. The plows being in plain
sight of tho operator, makes this the only one-man tractor
on the market.
5. POWER HOIST. Plows are raised or lowered
for cleaning, or for turning, by a power hoist driven from
tho main shaft of the engine, and can be operated by the
driver at a pressure of his foot on the hoist pedal while the
tractor Is traveling either forward or backward or stand
ing still. Automatic cut-off stons plows when they have
been raised to the desired height.
Tho tractor has other exclusive features which we have
no room to enumerate.
For farm tractors is ably attested to by the fact that this
company has alreadly received orders for ten times its
yearly output, and that the combined tractor factories of
the country were able to supply only about one-fourth of
the demand for tractors in this country alone. In addli
tion to this we have received thousands of inquiries from
all over the world, Mexico, South America, and even the
European countries are clamoring for Square Turn Trac
tors. In the United States alone there are over three and
a half million farms wlfere tractors will ultimately be
used, and more than two riiillion of these farmers are al
ready considering the purchase of a tractor.
with our present factory unit is three tractors per day
This output will pay a profit of over 50 per cent on the en
tire $700,000 in stock issued to date. With our new build
ings, more equipment, we will increase production and
materially add to the earnng3 of the stockholders.
