Horse Drawn Farm Machinery by D J Smith. At the beginning of the eighteenth century the Agricultural Revolution revolutionized farming. Centuries-old methods were discarded and widespread improvements were made. One of the most notable changes was the replacement of draught oxen with the more versatile special heavy breeds of horses. The Victorian ingenuity of the Industrial Revolution produced an enormous range of horse-drawn agricultural machinery. Fields had been ploughed by draught animals for centuries, but suddenly new horse-drawn machinery included not just ploughs, but grubbers, cultivators, harrows, rollers, drills, reapers, binders, root lifters, manure spreaders and rakes. This small book describes and illustrates these machines, the horses and their harness, inventors and manufacturers and lists the places where the machines can be seen today(UK). Chapters are;
The plough
Clod breaking machines
Hoes
Drilling machines
Harvesting machinery
Root lifters
Fertiliser and manure distributors
Haymaking machinery
Portable machines
Horses and harnesses
Inventors and manufacturers
