What would potato growers do without mighty row crop tractors? We'd feel every ounce of every hundredweight during harvest! Harvest would be a back-breaking process, as we-as well as all of our neighbors-would be sweating in the hot sun or freezing in the cold wind, to harvest a handful of acres. Tractors of today are getting bigger, better and easier to drive every year. With many new tractor models featuring variable transmissions, growers will be more than willing to keep working for a few more hours in the field. And won't be breaking their backs to do it.
