  • 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. Unlike many enterprises begun in a family garage, the development of their tractor revolutionized the care of America's fast growing post-war suburban lawns. Here was a tractor far from the farm, which delighted its user while easing his maintenance chores. Today, the Wheel Horse tractor is a prized collectible in addition to being a useful and necessary piece of equipment.

    Straight from the Horse's Mouth: The Wheel Horse Story tells the fascinating story of the beginning of the Wheel Horse and its influence on the American lawn. Full of beautiful, color photographs on crisp, glossy pages, you'll learn the history of this classic machine, complete with vintage advertisements, personal memorabilia, and even an accompanying DVD. This final edition of Straight from the Horse's Mouth is perfect for vintage tractor buffs or any historian.

    Order while you can! When this final edition complete with DVD is gone, it's gone!
