weighs 600 lbs. empty and has a
tread width of only 31 in.
air-cooled engine drives through
two standard automobile transmissions
hooked up in tandem,
thus giving a wide variation in
gear ratios for the heavy pulls. A
power-driven hydraulic lift, separate
foot brakes on the rear
wheels and a foot accelerator combine
to give a degree of control

midget through small gates and
feed-bunk alleys and its ability to

driving through a single
transmission will give satisfactory
