Rhino : Home (643 words)
Rhino® is a leader in the agricultural equipment industry with emphasis on tractor mounted rotary and flail grass mowers, front end tractor loaders, backhoes, brush cutters, stalk shredders, and hay mowers; rear blades, post hole diggers, pasture renovators, finishing mowers, rotary tillers, boom cutters, and landscape rakes.
The shredder was mounted on the front of the tractor and allowed the farmer to shred and plow in one pass through the field.
The Lone Star blade, and later the Little Rhino blade, were the first tractor rear mounted blades having mainframe swing, moldboard pivot, and moldboard tilt adjustment capabilities built in.
Fordson tractor: Information from Answers.com (1247 words)
The Fordson tractor by the Ford Motor Company was the first agricultural tractor to be mass produced.
The Fordson came at the end of the First World War with its manpower shortages in agriculture, and utilizing Ford's assembly line techniques to produce a large number of inexpensive units, it quickly became the dominant model.
These inexpensive and robust tractors (both American and Soviet models) became the major enticement for Soviet peasants towards collectivisation and were often seen on Soviet posters and paintings from these times.
