(under the class definition) Apparatus comprising an earth working means combined with a power driven means for handling the earth after it has been severed from the ground or loosened by the earth working means.
(1) Note. Where the power driven means not only handles the earth but performs a substantial earth working function the apparatus is classifiable in subclasses 35+.
(2) Note. The power driven handling means may comprise for example a conveyer for moving the earth or a means for turning a furrow slice.
(3) Note. A power driven cleaner or comminutor which merely separates earth from an implement without conveying it to a distance is not considered to come within this definition. Such devices may be found in subclass 66.
