Real VT: Tractor Love

comment

The folks at the Old Shaw Farm are very happy with their new Farmall International Cub.

Our Cub has two sets of hydraulics (rear and belly mounted), which raise and lower racks of metal tines. The tines can be adjusted to match up inversely with the rows of veggies in each bed, and then the tines are lowered slightly below the soil level. As the tractor moves forward, the shovels and sweeps attached to the bottom of the tines disturb the soil and kill the weeds.

The things you think about in South Peacham.
