A T pressed into tilling service in Canada. The Dominion had been fighting in Europe since 1914 and many young farmhands (and their horses) were overseas and in service to the King and Country. This was one answer to this shortage of home-front labour- Take your automobile and convert it into a light-duty mechanical tractor that anyone could drive and most could afford.
A stop-gap measure (although many were never converted back!) until that rumoured Ford light weight tractor is built...
Photograph (and Ontario license plate) are dated 1917
Dale, thats a great photo. Thanks.
The farmer is new to the concept ! He'll find out pretty quick he should have the top down or the rear curtain rolled up so he can watch the hitch on his implements. I hope the chain pulling the harrows isn't rubbing on a disc !
The "C" On the licence plate means it is plated for commercial use. Just like the set of plates I have on my car.
What he really needs is a swinging drawbar before he turns to short and the spade lugs grab the disc toung!!!!!!! That can wreck a good pair of shorts!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
I thought of that too Bud, the wide turning radius of the T maybe prevented that ?
