• J. I. Case
• John Deere
• International Harvester
Also well-represented are smaller brands like Advance-Rumely, Cockshutt, Eagle, Fate-Root-Heath, Ferguson, Hart-Parr, Minneapolis-Moline, and Oliver. Tractors from the United States, Canada, and Europe are included. But The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition is more than just another collection of handsome colour photos. Each model description is accompanied by a specification chart presenting crucial technical details like RPMs, horsepower, fuel type, maximum speed, weight, and more. With some 400 tractor models and a color photograph depicting each, The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition is a valued addition to any tractor lovers bookshelf.
