By 4, and fitted in this Way the car will carry loads of up to a ton in a weight Over the average country dirt Road at a Speed of from three to Twenty Miles an hour. Its added hauling capacity in no Way interferes with its use As a pleasure car As it can be very easily converted by the addition of a couple of Surrey seats built to fit on to the body and which can be put lot or taken off in a moment like the Ordinary Hack seat. So rigged the truck can carry six or eight persons a comfortably covering As much ground in a Days run As the average Road car. The truck is used for All the hauling except the very heaviest and the work is done so much More rapidly than by team that there is a very marked saving in time than which no other item on a farm runs More quickly into Money. In. Addition to the direct saving in time an important feature in the use of the motor is the fact that in Busy a seasons All of the mules can be used exclusively for Field work and there is no necessity for breaking into the regular blowing cultivating or harvesting outfits just when they Are most needed in order to get teams to do the various hauling jobs that Are always coming up at such inconvenient times or to make unavoidable trips to town for freight supplies repair parts Etc.
