Description

This classic turn-of-the-twentieth-century guide presents practical information on virtually every aspect of farm equipment, machinery, and organization. Originally published in 1917, "Farm Equipment and How to Use It" surveys every topic of importance to the problem of equipping a successful and fully functional farm, offering useful and handy advice on such issues as laying out the farm, lighting the farm home, establishing sources of water, and arranging for sewage-disposal for the farm home. Additional sections provide detailed discussions of such indispensable examples of farm equipment as tillage tools, seeding machinery, manure spreaders, grain binders, and corn harvesters.Fully illustrated throughout with drawings, diagrams, plans, and photographs, "Farm Equipment" will prove as interesting to the current farmer for its still-prudent advice on the timeless problems of farm management as it will to the history buff who wishes to catch an image of what the American farm was like at the beginning of the twentieth century. It provides a lovely foray into the rich legacy of American agriculture and will appeal to anyone who has ever been interested in the nut-and-bolts of farm life.show more
