Chris Lockwood has chosen 41 examples to indicate the range of machines that can be called classics. They are all in their working clothes. Alphabetically they range from Belarus to Zetor with several examples from each of the major manufacturers such as Case, International and John Deere – altogether some 26 famous names are included.
Chris Lockwood gives each tractor a full-page photograph opposite which his text provides some technical details of the machines as well as background about the company and the tractor range. This is ideal for novice enthusiasts who will learn something about David Brown, Doe, Leyland and County – as well as more exotic marques such as Same and Steiger.
