Ingenious Implements: Horse-Operated Farm Machinery Going Strong
(Page 3 of 3)
I&J makes a wide array of machinery, including standard and engine PTO forecarts, small 3-point implements (such as a 1-bottom plow, a potato plow, and a spring-tine harrow), 1- and 2-row and walk-behind cultivators, a trailed PTO sickle-bar mower and a ground-driven or PTO rotary hay rake, among others.
There are, of course, scores of other, smaller manufacturers who make field sprayers, PTO and standard forecarts, wagons, bale movers, manure spreaders, planters, tillage tools and machines such as mulch layers and lifters, and transplanters for use in raising vegetables and other produce.
While none of these manufacturers employ hundreds of workers, they do furnish work for a good many of their neighbors and fill a real need in the horse farming community.
