Author Notes

C.H. Wendel has turned a lifelong interest in the workings of farm machinery into a series of books.

Wendel's work, Massey Tractors, tells the story of two small workshops in Canada that joined forces to produce a line of tractors and farm implements that have been sold throughout the world. The Allis-Chalmers Story begins with the founding of the Gates Iron Works in 1842 to the Deutz-Allis merger in 1985 and outlines all the equipment that was produced in-between.

C.H. Wendel's books gather bits and pieces of information that can be found elsewhere only through tedious research and organizes the information into a form that is readable, reliable, and educational.
