BACK IN TIME
Steam Powered Operated Farm Tractor
Water Treatment if you were lucky to use surface lake/river water in the PNW - you were less likely to scale than when they started using well water, certainly tough going if too far from the lake/river. This looks like a lot of hot work to plow a field. Now cushioned CABS with A/C, and almost full automation (GPS etc.) are the norm.
We certainly have come a long way
Not sure if solar powered,
battery or wind driven means of power for these tractors of today may not be possible. Who knows, the earth was once thought of as "FLAT"
I STAND CORRECTED
seams to be the best way to go as long as restorative power is available
...anyway for our friends in the business - keep drilling....
