In operation, the Old Number One could spray 400 to 600 acres per day. By 1969, 500 units were being built annually.
The Old Number One was conceived by John D. Kirschmann, a farmer who wanted to spray cereal grains on his 6,000 acres.
The original engine for the Old Number One was obtained from a wrecked Volkswagon Beetle for $300.
