Never before has such a detailed story been told of the machinery, tools, and implements used on farms on a daily basis. C. H. Wendel documents the machinery of manufacturing giants and those lesser known, from their beginnings in the 1800s through the farm machinery and equipment of the early 1950s?everything from alfalfa bunchers to windrowers, including relatively minor items such as feed grinders and disk harrows. Alphabetically organized, each entry includes an overview of the implement or tool and notable examples of associated brands. A brief historical summary accompanies each example with a description of its intended uses. Readers get the full story about corn planters, corn pickers, and the combines, with sections on farm engines, steam traction engines, trucks, tractors, wagons, vehicles, and numerous farmhouse items. Each chapter provides pricing guidelines as well. Plant the seeds of tradition with this fully illustrated, comprehensive encyclopedia.
