Instruction Book - H.V. McKay Massey Harris, Sungrade, Stump Jump Disc Plough, 1941 TradeLiterature Reg. No: TL 45109

Summary:
The booklet gives detailed instructions on adjusting and operating the plough, and contains explanatory diagrams on each page.

The Sungrade Stump Jump Reversible Disc Plough was pulled by two horses, and this manual provides instructions on how to attach the plough to a team of horses, as well as how to adjust the yokes depending on the condition of terrain to be ploughed. Advice is also provided on disc positioning depending on soil and pasture conditions such as 'heavy pasture growth' or 'hard summer ploughing'. This model was referred to as a Reversible Disc Plough as the wheels are reversible and ' are so designed as to give the user of the plough an opportunity to arrange them to best suit his particular conditions.'
