Description of Content

Rear view of an early Sunshine Model O tractor built at the Sunshine Harvester Works, giving a clear view of the spur-gears within the rear wheels for driving purposes. Engaging the belt-drive pulley was by an over-centre action. The tractor has the words 'H.V. McKAY SUNSHINE' written on the petrol tank in front of the steering wheel and 'PATENT PENDING' on the chassis side beam. Only a limited number of the two early Sunshine tractor models were built, being used primarily for experimental purposes.
