David Brown Tractors
Covering the whole history of David Brown tractors from 1939 to the closure of the company in 1988, Jonathan Whitlam describes the models developed at the factory in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, and how they evolved over time. The author also covers the many innovative features that were pioneered by David Brown, including hydraulic systems and transmissions.
From the early Type A tractor developed with Harry Ferguson through the independently developed David Brown models, including the Cropmaster, the 900 series and the Selectmatic range of 1965, through the 90 and 94 series, and also touching on other David Brown inspired machinery, this book covers every aspect of David Brown production.
Including discussion of the mergers with the US Case company and International Harvester before the ultimate demise of David Brown in the face of a worldwide slump, this book is a concise but complete account of what was a leading British tractor manufacturer.
