Transmission Mission

Duane Small leans down to close the top on his circa 1950's Wheel-Horse tractor after removing the transmission at his home in Lyme, N.H., on July 7, 2014. Small says he prefers the older tractors- though they often break down- because they are simpler. "I can't work on these newer models- like my cars," Small said, "They are run by computers, and I don't have a computerized mind."

Duane Small leans down to close the top on his circa-1950s Wheel-Horse tractor after removing the transmission at his home in Lyme on Monday. Small said he prefers the older tractors, even though they often break down, because they are simpler to repair than modern machines. “I can’t work on these newer models, like my cars,” Small said. “They are run by computers, and I don’t have a computerized mind.” Valley News — Sarah Priestap
