A Piece of Old America

There is a lot to be said n how far we have digressed in how long things last.

Take for example this Old Rotary Tiller.
it iis over 70 Years old and it is still running.
my weed wacker from Wall Mart made in China? Dead. even whie well cared for.
We say how we want to save the environment. Stop making junk and start making things the way they used to be made.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Clinton Machine Company - later Clinton Engines, Inc.

Resourceful people rose from the obscurity in the Iowa farmland to become the world leader in the manufacture of small gasoline engines. Later the business closed.
But there legacy still can be found today.

It is a great honor and privilege to own a piece of American history. And Yes I do use that machine for gardening.
