This book tells the story of the men, machines and equipment developed for Australian agriculture. It traces developments ranging from broadacre cultivation to garden rotaries, to prickly pear destruction, to auto headers, to banana harvesting for paper making.
Contemporary advertising sprinkled through the book provides a backdrop for the people, companies and products that have been important to our farming history. Did you know that tractor hands-free steering was first commercialised by Beeline in Moree, NSW? That the world's biggest paddock cleaning machines are made in Banana? That single-pass grain and straw harvesting began in Western Australia?
Dr Graeme Quick, is an internationally recognised expert on farm equipment. He has worked on farm machinery engineering in over thirty countries and holds fourteen patents, two of which are incorporated into grain harvesters world-wide. 'Remarkable Australian Farm Machines' is the definitive reference on the 40-plus Australian manufacturers of tractors and self-propelled machines. It documents remarkable machines in the Australian economic and historical context.
