Text Box: Jobbers

The Rock Island Plow company strived to be a one stop agricultural implement company, however, even a major company has limits. To fill in the gaps, RIPC became jobbers (as a company was called when they sold another companies product line with the name still attached). I have included in the various specific sections lines RIPC acted as jobbers for, but this section is dedicated to the rest like Frost & Wood binders and mowers, Eureka Potato Planters and Diggers, Joliet Shellers and the Babcock Groundhog series of tillage tools.  Although many of these had Rock Island product brochures, they were almost never included in the general catalogs. This changed in the very late catalogs. In a handful of cases, Rock Island sold another companies products entirely under the Rock Island name, as may have been the case with some wagons and elevators.
