Abstract
Trials conducted prior to 1958, using single axle walking type tractors in Uganda led to the general conclusion that this type of tractor would not be suitable for use by African peasant farmers. The main reasons for this view were that the power units were unreliable, that the physical effort required to operate the tractors was excessively high, and that the range of implements available was limited. Finally, the users lacked the necessary skill to maintain the machines in good working order and to get the best performances out of the machines.
