In 1935 Richard put together a tractor. The motor was a 4 horse power inboard boat motor. The clutch from a model T-Ford was used. The transmission was a 3-speed from a Star car. The back wheels were from an old horse mower and the front wheels were from a model T-Ford without the tires. It was driven on the rims. This tractor pulled a 2-wheel trailer which they used to haul straw in the horse barn or haul wood home.
