AC From Buildings to Tractors
"Recently, air conditioning has moved from businesses and theaters into homes and automobiles. Now,
add tractors to the list. The Farmhand Co. is manufacturing the Air-Brella, an umbrella like device that puts a
wall of fast moving air around the tractor operator. The
spun aluminum bonnet provides shade and coolness
while the curtain of air keeps out dust, insects, fumes
and spray or dusting chemicals. The 32 lb (70 kg) battery
operated unit contains a 12 in. (305 mm) fan in the top
which draws in the air. The air is then deflected inside
the bonnet in such a way as to surround the operator
completely while not blowing directly on him."
