Omschrijving

After the first tractors appeared on the scene in the late 1890s, it took another two decades and plenty of modifications for farmers to embrace this once-crude technology in favor of the steam engine, further advancing the power-farming revolution. Written by an international expert in agricultural machinery, Farm Tractors takes readers back to the nineteenth century to look at the precursors to modern tractors and travels through the years to follow the machine's evolution as tractors became indispensable equipment on farms across America.

INSIDE FARM TRACTORS:

-How steam-powered machinery gave way to tractors, and how tractors changed the way that farmers worked

-Prominent early manufacturers and models, including Henry Ford's legendary Model F, International Harvester's Farmall, the Waterloo Boy, John Deere, and many more

-The use of hydraulics, the advent of diesel engines, the availability of four-wheel drive, and other technical breakthroughs

-The introduction of new fuel sources as alternatives to gasoline

-Specialized tractors for orchard work, high-acreage operations, carrying loads, cultivating, and other scenarios
