is a simple attachment to go on Fords (or other cars) to con
vert them into practical tractors.
The price of the attachment is $145 on Fords and $155
on other cars, much cheaper than any other similar attach
ment. The Pullford does the work of four horses and will do it
in the hottest weather when horses can't stand the gaff.
The Pullford will do the work of four horses and does not
eat when it is not working. If you could buy four good
horses for $145 you'd think they were mighty cheap.
For practical work on the average farm the Pullford is the
very best investment the farmer can make.
It will pull your binder, do your plowing, discing, harrow
ing, pull your manure spreader, haul your heavily loaded
wagons to town; in fact, it will do about all the work your
horses will do except planting and cultivating your corn.
The Pullford will pull any load that your two best teams
will pull and do it easy.
We will demonstrate the Pullford in a few days. Watch
the Plattsmouth Journal for the Notice.
