Heavy steel machines, diesel and a warm control seat with enough clearance and visibility . . . some enjoyment of wide open spaces, knowledge about invisible land features, involement in production of the bulk fluids that support our lives . . . like petroleum and milk, and vulnerability to the weather. Deere and more Deere (check the timeline). Who woulda thunk? Have any further tug and tractor parallels?
