    My Dad’s ’46 which he bought new and I still have, was used to pull both a plow and a combine. He said that it did not work all that well. There was a weight that mounted on the front bumper to keep the front end down. He also used the power take off to power a post hole digger and contracted with Bell Telephone in the late 40′s to dig post holes for telephone poles in the country. The PTO also powered an arc welder and a scything mower. He contracted with the county and used the mower to mow road ditches on his way to and from work.
