The Moline-Universal Model D: Early entry into motor-farming market marked by innovation
In profile the Model D looks very much like a 2-wheeled walking tractor with a sulky-mounted plow in tow. What is deceiving about this advertising image is how large the tractor really is.
The text in this advertisement refers to horses, not other tractors. Note the Universal is pulling a Moline Plow Co. reaper and the steering shaft has been extended through a universal joint to extend the wheel back to the operator’s station on the reaper.
