ilfHEN you buy a tractor you want
Hv first, the most efficient, dependable
and economical tractor on the market.
Second, you want to be sure of a per
sonal service from your dealer that
means something. For what good is
the best tractor to you if you don't thor
oughly know how it works and how to
keep it working,
I went to the Advance-Rumely
Dealers' School at LaPorte, Indiana,
where the famous OilPull Tractor is
built for the express purpose of putting
myself in a position to give you such
service. I was privileged to attend this
two weeks course in company with
some 250 other dealers selected by the
Advance-Rumely Thresher Company.
During the two weeks we worked,
and worked hard. We learned the
tractor thoroughly not from books
but by stripping it down and assembl
ing it again. We worked on the motor,
transmission the cooling, ignition and
lubrication systems in fact every part
of the machine.
And they put the "cards on the
table" there at LaPorte. We were al
lowed, and urged, to look into every
branch of the factory no department
was closed to us nothing was kept
from us. We saw the whole inside
workings. The bigness of it impressed
me the machine shop alone is 800
feet long but more than that was the
systematic way things are organized
and the thoroughness with which the
goods are manufactured, inspected and
tested. One of the machines, a cylinder
grinder, is the only machine of its kind
in the country. The OilPull cylinders
and pistons, you know, are ground to
within 1-1000 of an inch.
I was pretty well satisfied before I
went down to LaPorte that the mater
ials and workmanship that went into
the OilPull were the best that went in
to any tractor now I am SURE of it.
In the Rumely OilPull Tractor, I
am not only selling absolutely the most
efficient, dependable and economical
tractor on the market and guaranteed,
remember but I am backing it with
a personal service that means some
thing to you.
