THE FIELD GUIDE TO CLASSIC FARM TRACTORS, EXPANDED EDITION
Author: Robert N. Pripps
A classic farm tractor is a conversation starter and a comforting reminder of childhoods on the farm and adulthoods twisting a wrench in the garage or shop. Tractors are cultural touchstones of another era, as familiar as the smell of apple pie baking in a farmhouse kitchen. All of that nostalgia is here in this expanded edition of The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors. This photo-filled collection features landmark models from all the major marques:
- J. I. Case
- John Deere
- International Harvester
Also, well-represented are smaller brands like Advance-Rumely, Cockshutt, Eagle, Fate-Root-Heath, Ferguson, Hart-Parr, Minneapolis-Moline, and Oliver. Tractors from the United States, Canada, and Europe are included. But The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition is more than just another collection of handsome color photos. Each model description is accompanied by a specification chart presenting crucial technical details like RPMs, horsepower, fuel type, maximum speed, weight, and more. With some 400 tractor models and a color photograph depicting each, this book is a valued addition to any tractor lover's bookshelf.
