Book REVIEW

| January/February 1982

  • Farm Tractors: 1950-1975


  • Farm Tractors: 1950-1975

'Farm Tractors: 1950-1975' has been published by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers as a sequel to its best seller, 'The Agricultural Tractor: 1855-1950.' It contains over 400 photos.

This new book undoubtedly will be as popular as the volume which preceded it. Demand for the 1855-1950 book is shown in its sales of nearly 50,000 in the past six years.

Lester Larsen, the new book's author, has excellent credentials- he headed the famous Nebraska Tractor Testing Laboratory from 1946 to 1975. He was assisted by over 100 other experts including Carlton Zink, who headed the testing lab from 1930 to 1941.

You can not only see pictures of important models of U.S. and foreign tractors of the period, you can also read specifications. You can follow the major changes in technology and design in the 25 years covered- years of great change and growth.



Whatever your interest in tractors may be, you'll find ample information. Every collector should own a copy.

The book says, for example, that Allis-Chalmers was one of the first makers to try pneumatic tires. It shows Albert Schroeder, a Wisconsin farmer who aided in experiments, on his Allis-Chalmers model U. Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. also assisted.
