Farming with Walk-Behind Tractors – Downloadable PDF

This report, by 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.
