The first general-purpose tractor with narrowly spaced front wheels, the original Farmall was designed to do fine-tuned field cultivation as well as anything a team of farm horses could do—in short, to “farm all.” The rest is history, even legend, in the agriculture industry—a legend that unfolds in these pages in full color and sharp detail. This big book features five hundred photographs of Farmall tractors, from that first experimental model introduced in 1924, through the classic lineup of International Harvester models that bore the Farmall name, to the last one to roll off the assembly line (the landmark five-millionth tractor produced at the Farmall plant in Illinois). Detailed descriptions combine with these vibrant pictures to make Legendary Farmall Tractors a full-scale appreciation of the art of farm machinery at its can-do best.

John Deere may have been a bit slow to test the tractor market, not launching a company-branded tractor until 1923, but once the agricultural powerhouse entered the scene with its mighty Model D, it never looked back.

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 •The tractor industry’s major expansion following World War II •Modern-day tractors and an outlook on the future of farm machinery
