Steve Hale has written a book on what he calls an addiction. It's all about tractor owning.
He is an author, journalist, rugby coach and school teacher and his new book is called Kiwi Tractors: A Humble National Icon.
And he says it's quite common for people to own 20, 30, 40 or, in one case, more than 50 tractors.
Steve talks to Jesse Mulligan about tractors and their owners, from his home in Te Aroha.
