Vintage Tractor Catalogs and Brochures

Because many farmers weren't near a big city, or didn't have easy access to a dealer showroom, catalogs and brochures were often the main way tractor companies did their marketing.

These catalogs featured specifications and pictures of the machines, as well as descriptions of their uses. Today's collectors usually buy vintage tractor catalogs to accompany tractors they already own (or want to own), as a keepsake. Much more affordable than the real thing, these paper items can range from a few dollars to north of a hundred.
