P. & O. Wide Tread Lister
The latest words in listers is the P. & O. Wide Tread.
It enables planting in rows an absolute uniform distance
and at a uniform depth.
t It enables you to get in more corn to the acre which
pays for your lister in one season.
It makes cultivation much easier especially on side
hills as it is impossible to slide down hill.
It prevents you from cutting down any of the corn in
the fall- When using the wheat drill as your rows are all
uniform clean through your field.
It has no chains- clutches or gears to wear out but is
juslj Simplicity, efficiency and 100 per cent lister.
