I have been waiting for a book like this. This covers everything from the hundred series to the last tractor produced by farmall works. It also covers, step by step changes of each 'new' model, 'new' tecnology pioneered by IH, horsepower figures and the writer shares some of his experiances as well. Along with some great photos too. This is the perfect book to add to your collection. If you know some or even if know it all, you'll still benefit from reading this book.
This book is a must-buy for anyone who likes IH tractors. It covers all of IH domestic tractor production from the Hundred Series rollout to the production of the last 5488 at Farmall Works on May 14, 1985. It is well-written and engrossing. If you like RED, you will love this book!
