Background: Out of the Gippaland forests in Victoria, the land of tall timber, comes something new in the way of tractors. Small it may be, but it's as versatile as a full-size model; although, of course, it has some obvious limitations. Its power supply is two twelve volt batteries situated in the nose.
Peter Orwley, of Woodside, a Melbourne suburb, is already a skilled tractor driver at the age of two and a half. In his minature tractor he is able to climb a one-in-two gradient, steep enough to step even a man-size bush vehicle.
