Book Description

27 Jun 2002 Illustrated Directory
The production of tractors began about the beginning of the 20th Century with the development of the internal combustion engine, and following on from the beginning of the evolution of the automobile. There were other farm engines in use earlier, notably the plough and crude harvesters, but the purist would say that gas traction engines for farm tractors were made in large scale only in about 1901, giving rise to one of the most incredible enthusiast interests enjoyed: the history of international farm tractors. All the great names leap from the pages of this essential reference book - John Deere, Caterpillar, Oliver, Ferguson, Massey, International Harvester, Allis-Chalmers, Ford, Orphans, and many more - as the author presents fact-filled essays on the major tractor producers and their fabulous products.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Meet Potential 6 Mar 2003
By A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Published on Amazon.com
Spring showers might bring may flowers, but before anything can sprout, a tractor must pass along the furrows. Though I'm not a farmer, I have always enjoyed the hearty beauty of a tractor in an open field. "The Illustrated Directory of Tractors" by Peter Henshaw feeds my interest.

This book is loaded with two things: pictures of tractors and a few paragraphs about each one.

Whether you like the Emerson-Brantingham 12-20 of 1918, or are fascinated by the entire line of modern John Deeres, you'll love this overview.

The downside is the production. Photos don't appear to be color-corrected, the spine is stiff, and the dimensions of the book are not practical. Despite having 280 stunning tractor photos from across the world, much of each image is lost in the inner margin of two-page spreads.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have item for tractor enthusiasts! 9 Oct 2003
By "hobbs34" - Published on Amazon.com
I cannot put in writing how impressed I was with this book. The back cover states that it contains thousands of facts, but it seemed more like tens of thousands while still reading like a story book. The book gives a very good summary of the product lines of all major tractors, both in the US and abroad, as well as examples of some unheard of brands. Facts are given for all of the models that are discussed. I would highly recommend this book!
