Old Tractors Never Die: Revisited

A few days ago I did a posting about tractors. CJ wondered why front wheels on one of the tractors were under the nose and so close together.

Having consulted the Antique Tractor Bible and an acquaintance who was a farmer and one who has an orchard. The opinion is unanimous: they are row tractors ie ones which made it easier to go over the rows of whatever had been planted.

They are known as tricycle tractors (even though they may actually have four wheels!).
