Let's Talk Rusty Iron

Small but Mighty

Opposite left: A 1937 Model KVW, or “Klear View Wide,” once owned by the author. It’s the same length and height as the KV, although a wider front axle and a 6-inch spacer between the rear axle housing and the final drive on each side give it a wider stance. The cultivator has Oliver shovels and pin-break shanks, while two foot levers allow the gangs to be steered on crooked rows. Centaur also used Oliver bottoms, coulters and jointers on their plows.
