Duncan), Wallace, and Gale (represmiting Fanners’ Co-op., Timaru). Tile cultivator was put into a paddock of ploughed stubble along with a Niciiolson Ouliivator, and the work there done proved the Duncan Cult! vator to be, beyond doubt, the strongest machine.

At a meeting held after tire trial Mr Beer, chairman of the Association, thanked the two companies for sending the cultivators to lire trial. It was just what fanners required. The verdict of all present was that tbe Duncan Cultivator was the best in New Zealand. and could not be beaten. The local agents for the P. and D.
