Garden Tractors: Deere, Cub Cadet, Wheel Horse, and All the Rest, 1930s to Current
Garden tractors have come a long way. And as anyone who has acquired a few acres knows, these are the machines that do the yeoman’s work, the tilling and mowing and pulling and plowing that makes a small farm or a vast garden grow. This illustrated history features the brands that have endeared themselves the landowners everywhere--the Cub Cadets and John Deeres, Simplicitys and Fords, Ariens, and Kubotas that, in their can-do engineering, dependability, and bright good looks, are more than mere machines around the yard and small farm. Accompanied by current and vintage images of these indefatigable machines, this chronicle of the garden tractor is a wonderful testament to what makes America work, furrow by furrow.
