1869 - The editor of the Butte Cal., Recorder recently was present at a trial of the Locher Steam Plow.
Those present were much pleased with the performance. It plowed a strip twelve feet wide and 400 feet long in three minutes. Of course it is not to be expected that this rate could be maintained all day. It is designed to work the ground to a depth of six or seven inches and thoroughly pulverize it.
