Red 4WD Tractor Book

The story of the four-wheel-drive tractors built by Steiger, International Harvester, Case, and Case IH is told in dramatic fashion in this authoritative guide. Starting with the development of early four-wheel-drive systems at International Harvester, the book traces the evolution and design some of the most powerful and capable tractors of the twentieth century. With fresh detail on the 4300, 4100, Steiger-built IH tractors, and the 2+2 tractors including the Super 70 series, the book offers prototype drawings of several models--including the complete story of the never-before-published Magnum 2+2-- as well as inside stories and backroom drama that is a must for any enthusiast for farm history or tractors. 

Learn the complete story of Steiger tractors, which were originally designed and built in the barn of John, Douglass, and Maurice Steiger located near Red Lake Falls, Minnesota. Containing interviews with more than 50 of the people who built Steiger from its humble origin to a world leader, the book traces the evolution of the lime green Steigers in engrossing detail. The book also covers the J.I. Case 4WD line in great detail. In addition, the book tells the story of how each of these significant players in the industry combined under one banner and—together—created one of the current industry-leading technologies, the Quadtrac. The modern evolution of the Steigers and the introduction of the STX Series (and more) also receive in-depth coverage.

Signs of the times

Great sign, quality piece that shows my appreciation to the brand. Clean and bright, awesome addition to my garage collection next to my 1966 IH 800A - Thank you!

Good Quality

This is a good quality product! The cap fits good and the material is sturdy. The logo is not too shabby either. Exactly as expected!

Awesome service and products

I called to inquire how quick I could get a sign because a dear friend had passed and we wanted it to include with a flower arrangement. Nelson was so kind and accommodating with my needs considering I needed it in less than 24 hours! He assured me he would do everything he could to get it to me in Michigan by noon the next day.... and it was on my doorstep before 11:30! It was beautiful... perfect for the farmer who loved his Farmall H. We received many compliments on it!! Excellent customer service and products!! He even expressed his condolences when I told him what I needed and said sorry again before ending the call. I will certainly be ordering from them again!!
