MODEL LC -- LEADER IN ITS FIELD
Compare this tractor with any other in its size and power range and you'll see why the LC tops its class in usefulness, operating ease and economy. It's easy to maneuver - moves forward or in reverse with just a touch of the handy shift lever. All geared transmission and specially engineered axle supply just the right power when you need it for the job at hand. Big bar-tread, low pressure tires assure maximum drawbar pull. Power-weight ratio for maximum work ability. The LC is popular too, because initial cost is low, operating efficiency high, and you can choose from a full line of easy-to-mount, job-engineered attachments.
