C'OR use on small farms, Harry I Ferguson, Ltd., Coventry, has introduced a 30-visit. semi-trailer equipped with tipping gear of new design. Only 24pints of oil are made Use of in making a 40-degree tip. The franie is of pressed steel and the body has pressed-steel sides flared over the wheels to give an approximate capacity of 114cubic yds. Ease of loading and good stability are obtained by the low build and the ability to increase the width of the track by 8 ins. should the semi-trailer be used for hillside work.
With a taming circle for the tractor and semi-trailer of 30 ft., it is possible to turn from a 9-ft. track into a 9-ft, gateway. Brakes having 9-in.-diameter drums are provided on the semitrailer, and as with the Ferguson 3-ton semi-trailer, automatic coupling and uncoupling mechanism is fitted. This facility means a big saving in time, as the 'driver can remain in his seat.
