As a source of dependable, low-cost power, steam has always held first place. The energy resulting from its natural expansion against a piston head has never been disputed for reliability and economy.

For these reasons a steam tractor adapted in every way to farm and road work has long been one of America's urgent needs.

Thousands Spent in Experimentation

Making a steam tractor that would be practical, simple and effective from every standpoint has, however, been a baffling problem.

Thousands of dollars have been expended in experimental work; but, until the perfecting of 'The Baker,' some unsolved portion of the problem has always remained to stand between the thrifty farmer and the wide utility and economy which only steam provides.

A Triumph in Engineering Skill

At The A. D. Baker Company, where steam and steam engines have been a life study and work, we, too, shared this experimental expense.

For many years this one problem was uppermost in the minds of our engineers, and numerous failures were recorded before 'The Baker' was ready, in every way, to go out and represent The A. D. Baker Company's high standards for quality and efficiency.
