The history of tractors offers a fascinating insight into the story of farming in the twentieth century. From the advent of the internal combustion engine to diesel engines and four-wheel drive systems, this book traces the developments that have changed the face of agriculture. This exciting book examines the best
of this fascinating world. All of the major manufacturers are represented, with a diverse array of models, both groundbreaking successes and short?lived experiments. They include the 1912 Fairbanks, Morse Type N, which was started using a lit match; a selection of Henry Ford's early Fordson tractors (including the Trackson crawler units); and the tiny Waterloo Bronco, designed in the 1950s to take advantage of the post-war boom in market gardens. The earliest tractors were all designed for the job in mind but the most recent tractors take all manner of factors into consideration, not only is performance important but so too is driver comfort and safety and the appearance of the machine. Every manufacturer is always vying to stay ahead in the competition and each one is looking to the future of power farming and perhaps even the automated, driverless tractor.
