Farming with Walk-Behind Tractors

Farming with Walk-Behind Tractors

The latest report from retired Horticulture Manager George Kuepper covers his and the Kerr Center’s decade of experience using walk-behind tractors in the Cannon Horticulture Project. The report serves as a backgrounder for people trying to decide whether two-wheel tractors are a fit for their own operations. It also works as a basic how-to manual, offering tips on the use of several implements: rototillers, crimper/rollers, hay rakes, and three types each of plows and mowers. The report is extensively illustrated, with diagrams showing plowing patterns and suggested approaches to hitching and unhitching different implements.

The report is available as a downloadable PDF for $5.00. A printed version is available for $10.00. All online purchases are made through PayPal.
