This book tells the story of the men, machines, and equipment developed for Australian agriculture. It traces developments ranging from broad acre cultivation, garden rotaries, and banana harvesting for paper making. Contemporary advertising sprinkled through the book provides a backdrop for the people, companies, and products that have been important to Australia's farming history. The engineering ingenuity of the Australian farmer is demonstrated by such inventions as the stump jump plough, the Harvestmaster Macadamia harvester, and the Walsh-Bain Pecan Tree Trimmer. Author Graeme Quick, is an internationally-recognized expert on farm equipment. He has worked on farm machinery engineering in over 30 countries and holds 14 patents, two of which are incorporated into grain harvesters worldwide. Remarkable Australian Farm Machines is the companion volume to his Australian Tractors, Indigenous Tractors and Self-Propelled Machines in Rural Australia, the definitive reference on the 40-plus Australian manufacturers of tractors and self-propelled machines.
