  • THE TRACTOR FACTOR

    With tractor historian Robert N. Pripps, take a close look at some of the most collectible vintage tractors from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland, France and other countries.

    Vintage farm tractors are revered throughout the world as the source of mechanical labor, allowing the revolution of farming to take place in the 20th century. Some of the most interesting tractors are also the rarest, because they were produced in small quantities. These include one-of-a-kind modified models; old machines; and models produced by one of the many companies that made tractors for only a short time.

    The Tractor Factor is a richly illustrated book that reveals what makes a tractor collectible, showcases the rarest models, gives a history of the marque, and details specific finds. Robert N. Pripps, a leading tractor historian, provides expertise that’s coupled with the stunning photography of Ralph W. Sanders and Andrew Morland. The Tractor Factor is a book that no fan of these paradigm-changing machines will want to miss!
