About The Book

Every day thousands of vehicles and machines are in operation which help to produce our food, construct our buildings and keep our sports pitches, parks and green spaces in good order so that we can enjoy our sport and leisure activities. The people who own and operate these machines, whether they be in the public, or the private, sector spend large sums of money purchasing, running and maintaining them.

This well illustrated book is essential reading for those in charge of a workshop and those in the agricultural, grounds care and constructions sectors.
