Remarkable Australian Farm Machines (Book) AUD $29.95

 

This book tells the story of the machines and equipment developed for Australian agriculture, and their inventors.  It traces developments ranging from broadacre cultivation to garden rotaries, to prickly pear destruction, to auto headers, to banana harvesting for paper making.  Contemporary advertising sprinkled through the book provides a backdrop for the people, companies and products that have been important to our farming history.

Did you know that tractor hands-free steering was first commercialized by Beeline in Moree, NSW?  That the world's biggest paddock cleaning machines are made in Banana?  That single-pass grain and straw harvesting began in Western Australia?

Dr Graeme Quick is an internationally-recognized expert on farm equipment.  He has worked on farm machinery engineering in over 30 countries and holds 14 patents, two of which are incorporated into grain harvesters worldwide.

This book is the companion volume to his Australian Tractors: Indigenous Tractors and Self-Propelled Machines in Rural Australia (Rosenberg), the definitive reference on the 40-plus Australian manufacturers of tractors and self-propelled machines.  He has published half a dozen other books.  This one fits a unique place in documenting remarkable machines in the Australian economic and historical context. 

Dr Quick and his wife Marlene live on a small farm in SE Queensland.
