Ray Tucker was cutting tobacco on his farm Tuesday morning. But rather than stooping, swinging, lifting and spearing, he was driving a machine that was doing the backbreaking work for him.
Tucker is experimenting with a mechanical tobacco harvester manufactured by the Kirpy Company of France that cuts the plant, notches it and lays it on a wagon gentle as a baby. Rather than a field full of workers swinging tomahawks and spearing plants on sticks, cutting with the Kirpy requires one to drive the tractor and another worker to pull a wagon alongside.
