Two new heavy duty 2 and 3 plow
general purpose tractor the John
Deere Model 50' and '60' were
announced Saturday, July 18 by
Johnson Cotton Company. ;'
At the Announcement Day, which
Included the first public showing
of the Model '60' L. B. Fussell stat
ed these new tractors replace the
Models 'A- and 'B' in the John
'.Deere line.
Among the major advancements
: featured on the new tractors, Fus
sell listed duplex carburetion, 'live'
power shaft, 'live' high pressuta
Powr-Trol, ' quick change wheel
tread, effortless steering and new,
more practical styling. These new
features he added, mean stepped
up tractor performance,, easier
handling, greater comfort and con
venience, and better all around ec
, Duplex Carburetion, according to
' Fussell, Js a revolutionary develop
- ment in tractor engines. Through
; a new type, double barrelled car
buretor, fuel is metered in identi
cal amounts to each cylinder, pro
viding livelier, more flexible pow
er, smoother performance and
faster cold weather starts as prov
ed In intensive laboratory and field
A New live Power Shaft is
independent of the transmission
clutch and provide continuous
power for operating power driven
machines. Fussell pointed out that
this feature reduces clogging of
power driven machine to a mini
mum, eliminates much ot ibi clut
ching and shifting formerly rein
ed, and speeds up .all power take
off jobs. He aleo added that the
new tractors with the 'live power
shaft will pull ana operate any
power driven machine within their
power range without the need of
an auxiliary engine.' The new
power shaft has an independent
clutch which protects the system
and cushions shock loads.
A New 'Live' High Pressure Powr
Trol, also direct engine driven,
operates independently of both
the transmission clutch and the
power shaft. Fussell said tint

feature will save the op

time and effort formerly required
in clutching,, and chitting gear.
Fussell added that the new tractors
have a higher speed hydraulic
pump which increases the lifting
capacities of the hydraulic system
as much as 114 per cent over the
elder models. 11

Rear Wheel Tread adjustment
are much easier to make in these
new models, according to Fussell.
To adjust the rear tread, the opera
tor jacks up one wheel at a time,
loosens three clamp screws, tight
ens two jack screws, and turns an
adjusting nut to get the tread de
sired Fussell continued, that when
the desired tread is obtained, jack
screws are backed off and the three
clamp screws tightened, locking
the wheel in position. - Both wheel
hub and wheel clamp are tapered
when operating equipment requir-to assure positive locking.

With an, estimated 40 muuon
loot forest products are making to
the South's economy, only one-half
enough money is being appropriat
ed to protect this resource from
fire," Mr.- Malsberger said. '""On
the average, only two-fifths of. a
cent of each public dollar appro
priated is allotted to fire control.?
;. Citing lire control progress dur
ing the past 20 years, Mr. Malsberg
er said 78 per cent of the South's
woodlands are now protected from
fire." He added, however; that 41,
000,000 acres are not yet guarded
by an organized fire control sys
tem. V't . 1 ;;?! ;
When this remaining acreage is
protected, and with good forest
management practices, we. can ex
pect fully stocked stands growing
wood at full capacity,' Mr. Mals
berger declared. "It ,c.. will, mean
more Industry, more employment,
more payrolls, safer investment in
forest lands, expansion of the tax
base, and a better living." ;
