Yes they provided a good turning circle long before CV joints

I read a article on this lady back in the 80s

I have seen that front wheel drive system on those tractors and wonder how a differential was organised, probably with the tractors on dirt it wouldn’t matter.

Thanks Paul,
Some tractors have a drive shaft from each side of the gear box, I was thinking of them.

Yes Paul,
That Mack design goes through a lot of bevel gears which as you say gives a good turning circle.
