Back 20 years ago one of the tractor clubs I belonged to also had an old time sawmill that was powered by a tractor. Many a barn, house, and out building were built that way. Ever notice in an old barn the beams and boards aren’t quite exactly 2 x 4 or 4 x 4 or 6 x 6? We would put on sawing demonstrations at shows with a Ford 5000 powering the saw and I’d have my Ford 8N with a Dearborn 22-44 Cordwood Saw off to the side to collect the remnants and cut up shingles or firewood in a pile. Folks would be allowed to take pieces too for ‘souvenirs’. There also were special sawing machines just for shingles- called, what else, shingle mills. Our shows were always a big hit drawing big crowds. At other shows with other clubs who didn’t have sawmill, I made it a habit to always take an implement with my 8N to display as most shows had a lot of city folks at them and to see what they used to farm with back in the day was always interesting. A belt pulley was included with each new 9N tractor at the beginning then later on only as a dealer optional accessory. Belt pulleys were used on tractor going way back as they powered many implements other than saws.



AUTHOR's NOTE: These machines would not be legal today. Why? OSHA. Lawyers would have a field day.
