I was reading the current AP about the Parrett E. Got to wondering why it didnt take off and be a big seller. Was it price against HF Fordson? If so, I can understand that. Id like to see somebody plow say 10 acres with say like the bull, or Parrott, or Minnie Univ, or the AC Front drive, or the Farmers Friend so that we could get an idea why the farmers were glad to get rid of them. Course, farmers today, would think every inconvenience was a hinderance, so there observations as to the faults would be likely different than those who origionally bought them. We all know about the faults of the Fordson. Little is known about the faults of other makes.

Ford had a dealer network already well established. Every place they sold the Model T or A, They could sell Fordsons. Most of these smaller tractor manufacturing companys couldn't establish a good group of dealers. Back then, farmers didn't warm up to the idea of having a large tractor packing the ground. Today, it's dealer location, location, location.
