If you're a tractor enthusiast with a passion for tractor photography, "Legendary Farm Tractors" is a dream-come-true pictorial produced with you in mind. Containing more color photographs of more types of farm tractors than any other book in print, "Legendary Farm Tractors" presents tractors from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan-models from the 1880s to today-along with detailed captions, together offering a comprehensive photographic history of tractors. Organized alphabetically by make so that readers can find their favorites easily, the tractors covered here include everything from familiar manufacturers like John Deere, Ford, Farmall, Case, Caterpillar, and International Harvester to obscure tractors that have seldom been seen, such as the special streamlined Porsche coffee plantation tractor that looks more like a sports car than a piece of farm equipment. The extensive variety and distinguished photographs by noted photographer Andrew Morland make this an exceptional book for tractor buffs and the perfect gift book for any machine enthusiast.
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.

In the 1960s and 1970s, John Deere’s tractors evolved dramatically from small machines into large, powerful tractors with modern advances and muscular engines; it was a period of the greatest changes since the 1920s. Deere christened these tractors the New Generation. This book in the Tractor Legacy series examines these Big Green machines in detail, with archival and current photography of restored tractors, a thorough historical text, and details of model specifications and variations.
With detailed specifications and over 650 photographs of historical and modern machines, this is the ultimate book for every tractor and agricultural machinery enthusiast. A fascinating history is followed by a visual directory of machines and their manufacturers, with vintage models restored to their former glory, together with their modern-day high-tech equivalents.
"Over 100 tractors, stretching back over 100 years--from the first steam engines on wheels produced by ingenious engineers in the garden shed, to the mighty multinational John Deere. They are all here, photographed across the globe, from Kent to Canberra."--Publisher's description.
Farmall, International Harvester and Case-IH tractors built from 1958 to 2013 are covered with in-depth information about how these tractors were designed and constructed. The story traces the innovations and struggles of the final days of Farmall and International Harvester, and then the exciting story of the creation of the Case-IH Magnum, an innovative machine that blends some of the great engineering done by International Harvester in the their final days with thoughtful engineering additions and refinements from the newly blended team.
