Filmed in Austin, Manitoba, Canada by my good friend, Peter Philipsen (LanceOwcepoof). Certified Guinness world record as the largest operational agricultural plow. This demonstration pitted five examples of the century old Rumely 30-60 Model E oil pull traction engines against 66 Cockshutt 14 inch plow bottoms cutting a furrow 77 feet wide. Former Cockshutt CEO, Bill Cockshutt was present to plant the first plow bottom in the soil. The massive implement was built by 700 volunteers of the Manitoba Agricultural Museum. The huge drawbar was built to handle 4 Rumely's, however rain and heavy soil conditions made the fifth unit necessary. This breaks the previous world record of 60 plow bottoms of 14 inches. The Rumely Model E's are identical units to those used to set the original record in 1911.
