The pulling part of the STAUDE Mak-a-Tractor
consists of two tremendously strong tractor drive
wheels, having a special axle and dust-proof roller
bearings. Power is transmitted from the FORD
rear axle to the bull gear of each drive wheel by
means of the two roller pinions which replace the
regular rear wheels of the FORD.
Low Cost of Operation.
The oats and hay necessary for one horse will
pay the cost of running a Staude Mak-a-
Tractor. It's perfect design enables it to
pull any load that four horses can pull.
