Live power-take-off was one of Cockshutt"s claims to fame. This left the PTO shaft spinning independently of ground speed, enabling towed implements to continue their work even as the tractor might slow for the end of the row or stop altogether. Live--or independent--PTO did not originate with Cockshutt. It was first offered on Hart-Parr Model 18-36 tractors as early as 1926. PTO was first available on International Harvester Model 8-16 tractors introduced in 1918.

Gambles--Cockshutt--used an in-line vertical four-cylinder Buda gasoline engine, The engine measured 3.43x4.125in bore and stroke. The Buda produced 21.7hp on the drawbar and a peak of 30.3 belt pulley horsepower. Fuel economy was measured at 11.4 hp hours per gallon. Four forward gears offered top road speed of 10mph. The model 30 weighed 3,609lb.

The Cockshutt Model 30 was the first Canadian-manufactured tractor to be tested at the University of Nebraska. It was sold in the U.S. under license by both Farmers Cooperatives as the Model E-3 and by the Gambles Department Store chain as the Farmcrest Model 30. On each of the U.S. versions, the Cockshutt embossing on the grille was left unpainted but still readily visible. This was the 1949 Gambles.

Gambles tractors were made by Cockshut in Canada in the late forties. Cockshut made tractors for a lot of different companies during this time.
