A REAL ALL PURPOSE TRACTOR
The Heider 9-16 is equipped with a heavy duty Waukesha motor,
with power enough to pull two 14-inch bottoms at the regular
plowing speed of 2? miles per hour. It will also pull your harrows,
discs, drills, seeders, binders, hay tools, wagons, etc. Besides
this work, the Heider 9-16 furnishes belt power to operate the
smaller sized grain separators, silo fillers, corn shellers. etc.,
and does the lighter jobs, such as pumping water, sawing wood or
running the cream separator or washing machine.
The Heider performs all of its work economically, the cost for
fuel, oil, etc., being exceptionally low. This is due mainly to
what is considered by both experts and Heider owners to be the
greatest feature ever built into a tractor–
THE SPECIAL HEIDER FRICTION TRANSMISSION
The Heider has been equipped with the friction transmission ever
since it was first built. It was the first tractor to be equipped
with this style of drive, and has proven so remarkably successful
that at no time since this machine was put on the market has the
supply equalled the demand.
This is a specially patented friction transmission and should
not be confused in any way with the friction drive that has been
used on other machinery. The main difference is that on the Heider
the fibre is the driving member and not the disc, and in
‘starting loads the metal disc, standing still, is brought in
contact with the revolving fibre. As a result, it is impossible to
wear any flat places on the fibre wheel. All heavy work is done on
the outside diameter of the large metal disc, giving the greatest
leverage when most needed for heavy loads; whereas, on the ordinary
form of transmission the heavy pulling is done near the center of
the metal disc.
Owing to the friction transmission, the Heider has less gears
than other tractors. This means less trouble, less complications,
easier operation and your repair expense cut down to a minimum, an
important point to consider when buying a tractor. A lot of gears
and clutches are always troublesome and mighty expensive to replace
You can throw the Heider from high speed into reverse instantly,
if necessary, without the slightest injury to any part of the
The operating lever has seven notches, each notch representing a
different speed, and any desired speed can be had at any time while
tractor is pulling load. It is not necessary to let load come to a
stop to change speeds. Just reach over, pull lever and secure the
desired speed. Tust think of it, seven speeds forward and seven
reverse, for traction as well as for belt work.
BURNS KEROSENE OR GASOLINE
All Heider Tractors are equipped with a specially designed
manifold, so that kerosene or gasoline can be burned, whichever is
desired. Switching over from one fuel to the other can also be
accomplished at any time without changing the carburetor.
