From farming to road transportation, cultivation to furniture removal, tractors and trucks perform a huge variety of tasks. Tractors are an essential farming tool, having taken over the role formerly performed by oxen, horses, camels and elephants - that of pulling farm implements.

Trucks are road vehicles used for carrying heavy loads, from supermarket food, logs, cement or fuel to everyday refuse.

This magnificent encyclopedia is divided into two parts, one following the development of the tractor and the other focussing on the origins and functions of different kinds of trucks.

The encyclopedia includes:

  • an illustrated A-Z catalogue of all the major manufacturers around the world
  • a complete history of tractors and trucks, tracing their evolution from the early pioneers to today's state-of-the-art farming and road machines
  • the ultimate book for the heavy-vehicle enthusiast, with informative, authoritative and highly engaging text, and an extensive collection of full-colour and archival photographs showing tractors and trucks at work on the land and on the road
  • features tractors, farm machinery, military vehicles, general load carriers and dump trucks, and includes historical examples and also lesser-known makes and manufacturers
The Definitive illustrated guide and identifier for agricultural machines and commercial trucking vehicles - packed with over 1,500 photographs.
