at the Smithfield Show 11A MONG a variety of agricultural

machinery there is quite a good range of tractors and cultivators now on view at the Smithfield Club Cattle Show, which remains open until to-night at the Royal Agricultural Hall, London, N.1.

The Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Co., Salisbury House, London Wall, E.C.2, is displaying wheeled and crawlertype 26-36 h.p. tractors. The engines have wet liners and inserted valve seats, and a claim made for the efficiency of the vaporizers used is that, in a recent trial, of 50 hours, there was only 9 per cent, dilution of the lubricant.

The products of Bristol Tractors, Ltd., Quality Court, Chancery Lane, London, W.C.2, are shown with the Bristol air-cooled V-twin petrol engine, the Jewett water-cooled petrol engine and the Victor fiat-twin oil engine. One model has a track equipped with wooden feet for use on swampy ground. It is claimed to give a pressure of only 2 lb. per sq. in. They are fully described elsewhere in this issue.

The Associated Manufacturers Co. (London), Ltd., Wharfdale Road, London, N.1, is exhibiting Case steelwheeled, pneumatic-tyred and chaintrack-type paraffin-engined tractors, in 842 eluding examples of the C 17-27 h.p. and L 26-40 h.p. models. Double chain drive from a high-speed differential and the engine lubrication system are noteworthy features.

Fordson tractors with steel and pneuroatie-tyred wheels are a feature of the exhibit staged by the Ford Motor Co., Ltd., Dagenham, Essex. There are also on view a 2-ton Farmer's Utility Truck and a smart 12-ewt, delivery van. The former has a combined tailboard and ramp, detachable cratches and hoopsticks, whilst a roller-shutter rear door is a noteworthy point on the latter.

Six International tractors are shown by the International Harvester Co. of Great Britain, Ltd., 259, City Road, London, E.G. They range from the Farman 8-14 h.p. row-crop machine to the six-eylindered 40 h.p. chain-track model. Adjustability of the track is a feature of the Farmall range ; pneumatic tyres are available on certain models, and steering of the chain-track tractors is by separate clutches.

A novelty on the 18-30 h.p. low-speedoil-engined machine made by Marshall, Sons and Co., Ltd., Gainsborough, is the addition of an automatic cut-out to the governor, which closes the injection pump control when the load exceeds a safe figure. C.A.V.-Bosch injection valves are now a standard fitting. An interesting exhibit on the stand of Massey-Harris, Ltd., Ashburton Road, Trafford Park, Manchester, is the 15-22 h.p. four-wheel-drive tractor. By mounting the power unit forward of the front axle the weights on both axles are said to be equal when under load. Massey-Harris 12-20 h.p. and 25-40 h.p. models are also shown.

Cultivators for light ploughing and other purposes are shown by Stanhay, Ltd., Elwick Works, Ashford, Kent (Coleby) ; Henry Meier, 7, Andover Place, London, N.W.6 (Holder) ; Albert Bucher, Falcon Wharf, Stratford, London, E.15 (Peters) ; and George Mourn, Ltd., Hertford Road, Waltham Cross, Heists (Rototiller and Rowtrac).
