A pocket-size catalogue on the production of tractors and farm machines in the ex-DDR from 1945 up to 1990, completed with technical details, archival photographic material and a brief history of each model.
This volume is dedicated to the first SAME tractors that had the merit of spreading innovations in Italy and abroad such as double-wheel drive, the direct injection diesel engine and much more.
The book, like all the previous ones in the same series, contains an extraordinary series of images and photographs, a precious iconographic apparatus that makes the work unique and inimitable for the enthusiasts of the national agricultural mechanics.
This volume offers an overview of truck technology, starting from the basic one, ie engine, gearbox, differential, chassis and suspension, braking and steering system, to get to the systems of industrial vehicles such as equipment, power take-offs, retarder and the structure of the trailers.
Iconic John Deere tractors ranging from the spartan Waterloo Boy to the Model AOS, and from German and Argentine models to the acclaimed New Generation tractors are featured in this celebration of industrial tractor design.
