This is a classic guide to farm machinery, with a special focus on machinery used for producing grain. It provides detained descriptions and explanations of the machinery dealt with, as well as information on repair, maintenance, and operation. Written in plain language and full of helpful diagrams and photographs, “The Machinery of Grain Production” will be of considerable utility to those who use and maintain vintage farming machinery, and it is not to be missed by readers interested in the history and development of modern agricultural equipment. Contents include: “Harvesting and Threshing Methods”, “Types and Development of Combines”, “Flow Path of Material”, “Types and Sources of Seed Loss”, “Cutting and Conveying”, “Types of Threshing Cylinder”, “Rubber Rolls for Threshing”, “Threshing Effectiveness”, “Seed Damage”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on agricultural tools and machinery.
