Robert Pripps has written several farm tractor books published by Voyageur Press, such as Vintage Ford Tractors, The Complete Book of Classic John Deere Tractors, and The Big Book of Caterpillar and Massey Ferguson Tractors. Robert lives near Park Falls, Wisconsin.
At the outset of American agriculture’s mechanization, small, light, affordable tractors developed by major companies made it possible for smaller family farms to use equipment to eliminate or reduce their dependence on hired farmhands while replacing or supplementing working horses and mules with equipment from major corporations like Ford’s Farmall model – which quickly became one of the best-selling agricultural tractors worldwide due to its slanted windshield and distinctive radiator grill.
By the 1950s, many Farmall tractors featured gasoline and, later, diesel engines. Some models, like the Model MD and Super M-TA Diesel tractors, had four-wheel drive while others, such as those using hydraulic cylinders – such as those by Model MD or Super M-TA Diesel, had hydraulic cylinders for hydraulic operation. Other diesel models, such as 400 Diesel or 450 Diesel, could be directly started using compressed air, while others used IHC engines that could be started either through compressed air or hot bulbs, which provided another way of starting.
