Here’s the 2240 Vineyard Tractor; the neatest way to move 50 horsepower through a 60-inch-wide space. Width is the limiting factor in the vineyard. As the vines leaf out and mature, the rows fill in. Making it through is like threading a needle, yet the 2240 did the job at a 4-1/2 to 5 mph disking speed. The Vineyard and its first cousin, the 2240 Orchard Tractor, were low-production future collectibles the moment they cleared the factory door.
