Uniforn Planting
More Bushels
UNIFORM planting at a rapid rate is made possible by
combining the Oliver No. 30 double lister with the Ford
son tractor. The accurate dropping mechanism of the lister
is perfectly adjusted to the speed of the Fordson, and so
the seed is dropped accurately and at a uniform depth.
The covering discs supply the power for the dropping, and
they are held in the ground by springs so adjusted that the
planting device rides over ridges just as smoothly as on level
This double lister is as simple to, handle as the well-lmown
Oliver No. 7 gang plow. It will back and turn short ccrners.
So, you see, this is a truly one-man outfit.
