The latest addition to the popular 'Know Your - ' series, Chris Lockwood's Know Your Classic Tractors features 41 examples that indicate the range of tractors that can be called classics. The classic period of tractor production arrived in the mid-1960s, with ranges such as Ford's 1000 series and the Massey Ferguson 135.
Tractors were now true workhorses, with more power, more reliability, and greater driver comfort.
Their drivers fell in love with them, and many continue to work today. Alphabetically, the 41 tractors range from Belarus to Zetor with several examples from each of the major manufacturers such as Case, International and John Deere - although some 26 famous names are included.
Each tractor featured has a full-page photograph (all pictured in their 'working clothes') opposite which Chris' text provides some technical details of the machines as well as background about the company and the tractor range.
Know Your Classic Tractors is ideal for novice enthusiasts who will learn something about David Brown, Dow, Leyland and County - as well as more exotic names such as Same and Steiger.
