The World Encyclopedia of Tractors and Farm Machinery

by JohnCarroll (Author)


The history of the tractor is one of short rapid development, from the turn of the century when it was seen as little more than a substitute for the horse, to today's sophisticated machines that boast a host of technologically-advanced equipment. John Carroll charts the tractor's exceptional history from the early days of The J.I. Case Threshing Machine Company and their traction-engine of 1892, to the JCB Fastrak, one of the numerous state-of-the-art machines now on the market. Each piece of machinery is illustrated with archival material or colour photographs, and the text includes specification boxes and a detailed mechanical profile.
