SUPER TRACTORS - Farmyard Monsters From Around The World (Book) AUD $49.95

There are supercars, superbikes ... and supertractors. Just like those high-performance road machines, supertractors boast more horsepower, more features and more speed than their contemporaries. These Ferraris of the field are powered by big turbo-intercooled diesels of 500hp or more. Designed for the vast wheat prairies of Mid-West America, they are capable of astonishing work rates, able to plough an acre of land in little more than a minute. The 1970s saw a supertractor power race, with machines of 750hp, and even 900hp, built. Those were the tractor 'muscle cars' of their day, but modern supertractors make more efficient use of less power. Specialists like Steiger, Versatile, Wagner and Big Bud pioneered the breed. There are well-known tractor names here too - John Deere, Massey Ferguson and International. Other specialists offered their own take on the supertractor concept, from Caterpillar's rubber-tracked Challenger to JCB's high-speed Fastrac. All of them, in every sense, are supertractors. Peter Henshaw celebrates the history and development of these mammoth machines with a book that is packed with information, specifications and glorious photographs.
