The 2-Furrow.Wheel LAND PRESSER is getting much in use in modern agriculture, in consequence of the many advantages it has over the 6 or more Furrow Wheel Pressers. It can be used with One Horse, to follow in the same field 2 plough teams, thereby pressing the furrows before they are made hard and brittle by the atmosphere. Being only 2 furrow wheels, the impression is uni- form on the furrows. These advantages cannot, with the other pressers, be obtained. The furrows being ploughed some time become hard-3 or 4 horses are required; and in consequence of their having so many wheels, the pressure on the furrows is unequal. Two and three wheel Land Pressers have been, and are now realising (the framing all iron) £ 7 and £9 each; those part Wood and part Iron, are made at £3 10s. each and are of equal utility.
