Pedal Powered Tractor: Solution for Small Farms?

I’ve seen all sorts of pedal powered vehicles, and this is the first time I have seen a tractor. The site, farmhack.net lists some advantages of a human-powered tractor like “Better for operator’s body, less soil compaction, no fuel use, cheaper than a tractor; easily adaptable to specific needs.” Personally, I also see it as a lower cost alternative to a traditional fuel powered vehicle for smaller farms where speed is not a priority. Interesting stuff. Watch the video or visit the page at Farm Hack to see it in action.
