Description

Featuring machines right up through more recently collectible models of the 1970s and 1980s, The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition features all the legends enthusiasts remember, plus a few rarities. And they are all here in photographic glory.

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:
  • Allis-Chalmers
  • J. I. Case
  • Caterpillar
  • John Deere
  • Ford
  • International Harvester
  • Farmall
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, The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition is a valued addition to any tractor lover's bookshelf.
