Four Wheels Ahead The Story of SAME Tractors First Edition 1987
Home > Four Wheels Ahead The Story of SAME Tractors First Edition 1987
Massimo Di Nola
First Edition - December 1987

Brand New Boxed Book in Super
Condition

The story of SAME Tractors is a
threefold one. It is the story of one
man's remarkable ingenuity. It is the
story of a company that in sixty years
has risen to become a world leader in
its field. But it is also the history
of Italian industrial mechanization
from its beginnings to the present
day.

When in 1952 the world saw the first
four-wheel drive tractor with a true
diesel engine, 35 years had passed
since Francesco Cassani had drawn up
the first plans for this idea. Years
of hard work and effort, struggling
against financial hardship and the
conservatism of agricultural and
academic worlds alike, against
powerful competitors who already held
the market in their grip. But every
true inventor, and Francesco Cassani
is certainly among their number,
creates his own market, his own
demand. With an innovative product
that totally transforms the terms of
the equation vis a vis
performance/handling/price.

Francesco Cassani left not only an
outstanding technical heritage, a
range of tractors among the most
innovative and advanced in the world,
and a large modern manufacturing
plant. He left as well, in his Will
and Testament, a precise expression of
those basic, immutable values culled
from experience, on which his Same was
built, piece by piece. Few words, but
quintessential. These words are worth
a closer examination, because their
significance goes beyond the
particular case, beyond the personal
and professional story of their
author.
