Tractors in Britain (Book) AUD $65.00

Britain's rich heritage of agricultural engineering innovation is showcased in this celebration of the age of the tractor.  A unique collection of contemporary photographs combine to illustrate how farm power has progressed from the crude agricultural motors of the 1900s to the latest computer-age machines at the cutting edge of twenty-first century technology.

The book not only chronicles the changing fortunes of the British tractor industry, but also looks at the impact that imported machines from America and Europe had on UK farms.  While the main focus is on the tractor in agriculture, emphasis is also given to its wider application with separate chapters for industrial machines and crawlers.

Stuart Gibbard's authoritative text traces the chronological development of the tractors while considering their working environment and the jobs they did.  He also looks at the tractor factories, the work of the machinery dealerships and the life of the tractor drivers to give a complete picture of progress on Britain's farms.
