  7. The Rotor hoe harrow hat some advantages over the Rototiller it didn't make the soil as fine as the Rototiller did but it did make it good enough that a farmer was able to seed after.
  8. A swiss tractor maker once had a very revolutionary transmission that shifted gears with a eletric hydraulic system and I read that they sold that patent to Ford in 1962 or 1963 but not sure if that is true or not. I wonder if Ford used that transmission to improve the Select O speed after they fired Harold Brock. But I think its most likely that that transmission never got sold to a different company though. VEVEY was that swiss tractor maker and was one of the top six or five tractor makers in Switzerland. In 1962 they made a prototype tractor with that transmission and showed it to the dealers and they were all in wow and sadly were told by the company they will be going out of the tractor business.

  10. My grandfather still used 100 kg grain sacks until 1969, back in the old country the grain elevators only took grain that way until loose grain became common.
