Horsepower north of the border

Check out this sampling of Canada's best tractors (photos, information by Dave Mowitz).
The power take-off (PTO) concept is almost as old as the tractor itself. But, the PTO fell short in the field--until the Cockshutt 30 (1946). It offered an independent PTO running directly off the engine and through its own clutch, allowing a trailing implement to keep ingesting crop. Model 30 established Cockshutt in the U.S. tractor market.
