Synopsis

The production of tractors began about the beginning of the 20th Century with the development of the internal combustion engine, and following on from the beginning of the evolution of the automobile. There were other farm engines in use earlier, notably the plow and crude harvesters, but the purist would say that gas traction engines for farm tractors were made in large scale only in about 1901. This gave rise to one of the most incredible enthusiast interests enjoyed: the history of international farm tractors. All the great names leap from the pages of this essential reference book - John Deere, Caterpillar, Oliver, Ferguson, Massey, International Harvester, Allis-Chalmers, Ford, Orphans, and many more - as the author presents fact-filled essays on the major tractor producers and their fabulous products. Hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world thrill to the sight and sounds of farm tractors, old and new, and many collect tractor memorabilia, and this book will be the essential reference work for all such enthusiasts.

It includes hundreds of nostalgic and specially taken colour photographs to show clearly the great favourites, and also covers many oddities too, with concise identification notes and technical data. It will become an undisguised work of nostalgia for anyone interested in farm tractors from around the world, and everything associated with them. Any tractor enthusiast is sure to enjoy this wonderful book
