Walking in a Rhode Island farm area, stumbling upon an antique but functional tractor, we see a worn, cared-for engine. The obvious care is shown in the condition of the fuel sediment bowl.

On a farm, all care comes from the farmer. That includes mechanical care. The computer on that an ancient tractor that tells of problems is the farmer themself. They can hear and feel when the equipment is having issues. The best of them head off the problems before the problem ever occurs. That quality is in evidence on this machine.

The fuel sediment bowl in the display is clean and clear. The fuel sediment bowl prevents the remains of burned fuel from entering the fuel system. It prevents the captured particles from entering the carburetor. This assures quick starts, clean-burning, and good performance.

In a well cared for engine, from time to time, the isolation valves for the sediment bowl turn. This isolates the bowl to drain and clean out the sediment. The bowl is then reset and the fuel line is allowed to flow again. As we can see, the fuel for this tractor is clear and clean.

This tractor is a display of care for efficient function.
