• THE BREAKUP: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

    How did one of the biggest-selling brands in history go under? There are a variety of reasons and opinions, all of which are explored in this book. These 192 color pages will provide hours of enjoyment to International Harvester collectors, restorers, Red Farmers, and other fans of the brand.

    Former International Harvester Company executive and former IH dealer Paul Wallem spent two years interviewing 50 dealers, farmers, restorers, and collectors, as well as former IH executives involved in the merger with Case.

    The Breakup: What Really Happened not only examines the causes of the dissolution, it pays homage to this magnificent brand that has long outlived the company. That’s due, in large part, to a growing number of ardent collectors, many of whom spend thousands of dollars to meticulously restore their IH equipment to “better than new.” They meet regularly at regional and national “red events,” and keep the iconic IH brand alive.

  • STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH: THE WHEEL HORSE STORY

    From the very beginning, Cecil Pond worked with his father, Elmer on the development of what became known as the Wheel Horse tractor.

  • A PRICE GUIDE TO ANTIQUE TOOLS, 4TH EDITION

    A price guide is only as helpful as its prices are current. With this in mind, the fourth edition of Herbert Kean's A Price Guide to Antique Tools takes its prices from the latest live and Internet auctions as well as private sales. Like previous editions, the guide includes more than 12,000 prices (individual and chart combinations) that represent extraordinary tools, as well as those found in flea markets.

    There is an explanation for each tool group that allows the reader to judge the condition of a tool (the most critical of all factors when determining price). A chapter on American wooden planes covers more than 400 makers, each graded with a single value number … a system that is at the same time simple and comprehensive.

    To help even more, almost every tool is illustrated with a photograph or line drawing. The section on Internet prices explains the mechanisms of electronic auctions and gives tips for successful bidding. If you have ever wished that you could consult with an expert before investing in a tool, this is the book for you. It puts at your fingertips the knowledge and expertise of noted tool collector and dealer Herb Kean, both in determining current prices and in evaluating condition.

  • CLASSIC OLIVER TRACTORS

    Classic Oliver Tractors chronicles this historic agricultural brand from when James Oliver bought a quarter-share of the South Bend Foundry in 1855 to when the last Oliver-branded tractor rolled off the assembly line in 1976. The Oliver Corporation’s roots run deep in the agricultural industry. This once small company started with a young man and an idea that would lighten the load of the farmer. Through the years the company grew and acquired other companies with the same philosophy until nearly a dozen companies operating under the Oliver flag became a strong force in the farm market.

    This new account of Oliver’s history includes its industrial and crawler tractors, implements, international ventures, and the various products that carried the Oliver badge. Vintage advertisements, brochures, and both color and black-and-white photos (alongside contemporary color images) illustrate this compelling part of agriculture’s history.
