The Moline-Universal attaches di­ rect to the binder, and forms a sin­ gle, compact unit with it that is-con­ trolled by the operator iron the scat of the binder, where he must sit in order to do good -work.. The outfit is as easily handled as with horses, stopping, backing, going into corners and turning with ease. With the Mo­ line-Universal one man decs cleaner, faster, and better work than other tractors do with two men. *For threshing, the Moline-Univer­ sal develops lS-bclt horsepower, enough to pull a 21-inch grain sepa­ rator or a 10-inch ensilage cutler. This belt power is also available for any other work, such as running a corn shelter, feed grinder, wood saw, clover liuller, water pump o r clecrtic lighting plant. Harvesting and belt work, how­ ever, are not the only things tho Moline-Universal Tractor can do. With it .one man plows 9 acres a day, discs 27 to 38 acres, harrows 76 acres. plants 20 to 40 acres, cultivates 14 to 20 acres, mows 23 acres, rakes 25 to <0 acres, and loads 33 acres of hav. The high clearance of the Moline- Universal, -inches, makes it per­ fectly adapted for cultivating, one man cultivating two rows at a time at ajl stages of the crop. The trac­ tor is light, yet it has power to pull two 14-inch plows at considerably more than average speed, all its weight l»ejng traction weight Tiie Moline-Universal Tractor will work every day in 'the year. It does not plow and prepare your seed bed, and then rest while your horses do the planting, cultivating and harvest­ ing. That is why the Moline-Uni­ versal really replaces horses, and by ciiSbling one man to do four and five times’as much work as before, and. solves the farm help problem. The construction of the Moline* Universal is the most advanced on the market. Perfected four cylinder overhead-valve motor, electric start­ ing and lighting system, and complete enclosure of all working parts are only a few of the leading features.
