FARMER : You would not buy a great big, Heavy, slow moving horse that eats its head off, if you could get a pony that could easily do the same amount of work. The same should be true about tractors. Why buy a heavy, cumbersome, fuel-eating tractor when you can g�t a light, quick acting machine that/Jias the same or greater pulling power than a much heavier tractor. The greatest amount of draw-bar power for the least amount of weight and fuel consumption is the aim of all tractor builders. That should be your aim in buying a tractor. THIS MESSAGE TELLS WHY, when tractors are talked of, you hear such good words for FRACTO /--- Read What A Man Who Knows Says About the Nilson Tractor: Nlhson Tractor Co., November 24th, 1917. Minneapolis, Minn. Gentlemen: With respect to the Nilson tractors I have operated this past season, will say that I have concluded they are the best tractors of their weight, in fact I have done work with-these machines which a machine nearly twice their weight of the Nilson could not do. This was made possible by what I consider the three leading features of the machine.) viz. 1st, a very fine engine, 2nd, general good solid construction and last, but. not least, the Nilson lever hitch which being patented, cannot be used on any other tractor. This hitch makes it possible for this tractor to move a load which could not otherwise be moved except by a machine very much heavier than the Nilson. On the road they cannot be beaten. I have arrived at these conclusions only after subjecting these machines to a good hard grind lasting all season during which I had no difficulty hauling a three bottom 14-inch breaker through some of the toughest sod I ever saw, this at the dryest time of theyear. Anyone who will put a careful operator on his Nilson tractor, need have no fear that he will be disappointed with the machine.  Very truly yours, / Lethbridge, Alberta. (Signed) G. M. ROSENSTEIL, Extra Good Materials Mean Extra Value WAUKESHA heavy duty tractor motors, built by the Waukesha Motor Co., world's largest builders tractor r.nd .ruck motors exclusively. Hyatt roller bearings used throughout, eliminating the troubles common with babbit and bronze bearings. Speed: Nilson tractors pull your loads at from 2 to 4J4 miles per hour. The wide surface on the drive wheels prevents unnecessary packing of newly plowed ground. Traction means how hard do the drive wheels grip the ground to prevent slipping. The Nilson has solved the problem of traction by the lever and fulcrum principal with its patented lever hitch. Extra Value is What You Get in Niison's Nilson tractors are 95 per cent, ail steel which means the maximum of strength with the minimum of weight. Transmission gears are high grade steel, cut and hardened and run in oil. The gear case is dust proof. Nilson Tractors are easy to operate, comfortable to ride on, spring mounted front and rear, easy as a Ford to steer. Only one wbdel in furrow (front) making it self steering while plowing. All this means comfort to the driver and makes the long hard working days seem shorter. V THE NILSON HAS THE REMARKABLE DRAW. BAR POWER OF 3000 POUND (OFFICIAL TEST BY THE HYATT ROLLER BEARING CO., USING THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT APPROVED DYNAMOMETER). THE NILSON JUNIOR WEIGHS ONLY 4^00 POUNDS. INSIST UPOty KNOWING THE DRAW-BAR POWER OF THE MACHINES YOU ARE INTERESTED IN AND COMPARjE THAT WITH THE NILSON. 4 NILSON OWNERS HAVE LESS TROUBLE TO KEEP TRACTOR DRIVERS because the boys like to drive Nilsons Don't delay your order if you expect one for spring work.
