A Tractor Can Be A Friend

| November/December 1983

Friends are people who are always available if you need them. They know when to show up and they know when to leave.

You and your tractor could be friends for some of the same reasons that I and my tractor have become friends.

Some of the things it hasn't done impress me as much as some of the things it has.

It isn't a powerhouse. It struggles to do many of its tasks. However, if you are the type of person who takes your coat and a few oatmeal cookies with you to the field, you will probably just barely get done by chore time. Thats the way it's been. It has just barely gotten everything done for the last 40 years!

As I look back on the 35 years it's been serving me, I can remember it failing me only twice. Once the impulse on the magneto fell apart and the other time the bolts that hold the camshaft in place broke.
