Farm Equipment & Agricultural Supplies
Tractors & Combines
It’s hard not to think of tractors when the topic of farm equipment comes up. Tractors can do a lot of things. The primary purpose it serves is for hauling trailers and other pieces of farm equipment. It also has a number of uses too. They first made an appearance over 100 years ago in 1892. In Clayton County, Iowa, John Froelich built the first practical gasoline-powered tractor. It wasn’t until 1911 that they became successful. Twin City Traction Engine Company perfected the design and brought it into the mainstream. Little did they know they would make a revolutionary piece of farm equipment.
Self-Propelled Sprayers & Farming Tools
There’s a wide assortment of farming tools available on the market today because there’s a countless amount of different things that need to be accomplished. They aren’t hard to find. The term is vague enough to encompass anything you can find on the farm that helps you get things done. A farmer’s hands could be considered farming tools because they are the most important tools in the farmer’s life. If a farmer lost the function of their hands, they wouldn’t be able to farm anymore. Some might say that machines are taking the place of farmers. While this is true in some cases, there are other instances where it couldn’t be any further from the truth. A farmer even needs their hands to operate the controls on their machines because the machines aren’t going to do the work all by themselves.
