I don't know of any books about garden tractors in general..But if your into Wheel Horse tratcors there is a real good book called Straight From The Horse's Mouth by Michael Martino Jr. Its a very good book about the history of Wheel Horse and has alot of pictures drawings sales books, ect..Also has model identiy numbers for all tractors and implements up to 1985.. The Wheel Horse club also puts out a magazine for its members that I have heard is some real good reading to..Think its just a magazine they send out about 4-6 times a year..Think its called Horse Power? Sure would like to see that kind of history and info books on other brand tractors..But never have found anything..

If a person wanted to do a photo book of garden tractors a good place to start would be Don and Byron Millers collection in Pentwater MI. I have no idea how many they have but its well over 200. Lots of brands and styles I never heard of, their annual show is worth attending if only to look at all the different brands and models they have accumulated. A vist to the Millers adds new meaning to the term "way to much stuff".

I came across this one on rototllers accidently a few days ago. Though not a garden tractor book, It seems to fit the theme. http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Rototiller-in-America-A-Great-Christmas-Gift_W0QQitemZ4595026344QQcategoryZ378QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
