The driver of this Hart Parr 30-60 shoulda let the Ford cross the bridge first....

The tractor weighed 10 tons (19,750 lbs shipping weight) against the Ford's comparatively svelte 1300-1500 lbs. The hitched 6 bottom platform gang plow alone weighed at least twice that!

Rural bridges were big, and some times deadly problem for threshing and plowing crews as the weights of these mechanical behemoths were far beyond anything the builders of these structures ever imagined they'd have to bear
