John Deere Ironclad Wagons
"Ironclad Where There's Wear"
Careful consideration, when buying a wagon, must be given to mate
rial, workmanship and special features.
Material and workmanship determine durability and ipecial feature
Because good hickory la scarce and hard to get, many at tempt j have
been made to aubatilute some other wood for hickory in wagon axJee.
Nothing has been found, aa yet. that will compare with hickory for
strength and resiliency.
While oak, which la eoneeded best for hubs, hounds and spokes,. Is
more plentiful than hickory, there is a tendency to put wood of inferior
grades into wagons, on account of high prices of both hickory and oak.
Only selected air-seasoned hickory and oak are used In the gears of
John Ieere Ironclad Wagons. Tho supply comes from thousands of
acres of hardwooda, maintained by scientific and conservative cutting.
Long leaf yellow pine bottoms reinforced with five oak nil's or cleats
are used in the boxes. Hard and tough wood cantfuily aclucUfd and
tested for tho purpose forms the boa sides.
