International M Tractor with Snowplow

International M Tractor with Snowplow | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Man plows snow with an International M tractor and snowplow. Original caption reads: "Then equipped with Trojan Vee-type snow plow as shown, the Trojan one-man speed patrol, which is powered by International M tractor, becomes a very efficient dual-purpose snow remover. Its regular blade supplements the snow clearing action when in down position and can be used to bench the snow on side bank when raised. It is shown at work near Batavia, New York, where snowfall has been unusually severe this season.  The Trojan Vee-plow with its expanding curve moldboard has a cutting width of 72 inches. It is raised and lowered hydraulically. The maintainer blade is 10 feet long and has a swing of 90 degrees. It has a side shift (per side) of 15 inches, clearance of 12 inches, and penetration of 5 inches. The Trojan maintainer is a fast-moving outfit, its speeds varying from 2 to 16 miles per hour, and of course on its pneumatic tires it can travel on all sorts of roads."
