Farm Machinery

6th Edition

By Brian Bell

Written for students and farmers, Farm Machinery is the standard book on the current theory and practice of farm mechanization on British farms. First published in 1979, this new sixth edition incorporates much new text together with 280 new color photographs illustrating the steady flow of developments in farm mechanization that have taken place over the past decade. Recent advances in computer technology and satellite field mapping are included and new content enriches the earlier material dealing with the working principles and operation of the vast array of the somewhat less sophisticated farm tractors and machines still in use. There are chapters on tractors, cultivation, drilling equipment, crop care, and harvest machinery. Further chapters deal with farmyard and estate maintenance equipment, mechanical handlers, dairy equipment, irrigation, farm power, and the farm workshop. References are made to the UK Health & Safety at Work Act and other safety regulations. These summarize their main requirements, but they should only be taken as a guide.
