This wide-front Farmall 404 tractor is featured in the new book "Red Tractors 1958-2013: The Authoritative Guide to International Harvester and Case-IH Farm Tractors in the Modern Era" from Octane Press. The machine is pictured serving "planting duty on the Missouri farm of Darrel Darst, the editor of Harvester Highlights and curator of a museum packed with IH collectibles and memorabilia," the book notes.
"Red Tractors" documents in depth the history of International Harvester and Case IH tractors, from the creation of the 40 and 60 series to concept drawings, photos of prototype machines and much more.
It includes first-hand accounts from engineers and additional product-development specialists, as well as more than 725 images. Click here to order a copy of "Red Tractors 1958-2013" or learn more about the book.
