From lifestyle blocks to vineyards, high country stations and boat ramps, the humble tractor is a much-loved and instantly recognisable feature in any New Zealand landscape. The tractor is a part of our national identity, as Kiwi as pavlova, Marmite and a silver fern on the sacred black jersey. In Kiwi Tractors, Steve Hale elicits some delightful stories of affection from Kiwi owners for their tractors Over 30 profiles of Kiwis from all over the country who talk about their beloved tractors old and new, from those with a single tractor to others with entire collections. Includes photographic essays on the annual Hahei Tractor Bash, the Edendale Crank Up, and National Fieldays tractor pulling. Includes full colour high-spec spreads of state-of-the-art tractors, including specifications.
