Farmers and the Model B
  • The price alone was enough for farmers, when most tractors were non-acquirable.
  • Most small farm-owners of 100 acres or more labored the area by manual or animal power without tractors.
  • The horsepower of the Model B was almost half as much as competing tractors, but was enough to get the job done.
  • Simple parts required less skilled fixes for the Model B.
