An advertisement from an early Fleury catalog shows that the company made amny more farm implements than the plows that originally earned the company fame. That expanded product line blossomed as the company's business boomed."Our Reversible cone root Cutter No. 1, which by turning one way slices and by reversing pulps the roots. This Cutter has a reputation of many years' standing, and is a heavy and very durable machine. The pumping knives are made to do much coarser pulping than Cutters Nos. 7 and 8, and for this reason the work is preferred in many cases where the fine pulping is not desired."
