DB 3800 & 4600 tractors

This subject has probably been discussed before- The DB 3800 & DB 4600 tractors were built specially for the North American market in the late 1960s. The only information I can find them is that they used 3 cylinder gasoline (petrol) engines. Were there diesel versions? What British DB models do the...

Re: RE: david brown 3800

You would probably have to do a bit of research and with other North American memers on here with more knowledge of these models and ex D.B. suppliers you may be lucky and find some bits and pieces still around or even parts from breakers. I did a quick Google search and found a company in the Stat...

Re: RE: Prairie Cropmaster

Hi....this guy has a couple of pics of a Prairie Cropmaster on his website: Otherwise I don't know much about them. Thank you for the photos, I could only guess what a PRAIRIE looked like! P.S.I hope you noticed, on the photos, the DB crawlers were labelled as "DB cats". This is a snippet of the lo...

Re: RE: Prairie Cropmaster

I think Prairie Cropmaster was originally made for US market. Prairie Cropmaster was actually the first version about later DB 30C. RGDS I believe you are right about the PRAIRIE being built for the North Amarican market. Most of the North American manufacturers built "wheatland" versions of their ...

Prairie Cropmaster

I have noticed, in the serial number lists, a model called the "Cropmaster Prairie". I assume by its name it was a special "wheatland" version of the normal Cropmaster. My question is how did this model differ from a basic Cropmaster? Was the Cropmaster Prairie an "export only" model or was it sold ...

Hurriane forage harvesters

I have discovered an old advert for a David Brown HURRICANE forage harvester. Were these built by DB or an outside manufacturer? :?: The advert, from here in Australia, was issued by an general farm machinery dealer rather than by an actual DB dealer. The advert is listed as being from "circa 1960" ...

40TD crawler

New to me! The David Brown "40TD crawler" is something I've never seen and know nothing about. My question is how the 40TD was related to any DB wheeled tractor as other DB crawlers were? What engine did it use? The serial number list given on this website suggest the 40TD was built in very limited ...

DB 16000 mile journey

Hello, this subject has probably been discussed before, but it is new to me. I have just seen a photo of an epic journey by a DB Cropmaster pulling a caravan from England to Australia, overland, starting in late 1953 and finishing in Australia in 1954, in time for the Royal Tour. The image is a "fou...

RE: David Brown Ploughs - David Brown Implements.

Scooby, thanks for the great photos of the implements. My favourite is the one of the 5FT ALBION combine. The man driving the tractor wearing a jacket and tie is not a common sight, at least in Australia! Thanks for sharing! Regards from OZZ-DB 8)

First versus Second series 30 C & 30 D

I have heard of a DB 30D with an "unfindable" serial number.

My question is there any visually differences between the early and late "30" models?

What mechanically features are different?

The DB serial number lists have a "Series One" and "Series Two" 30c & 3Od listed.

Re: SHUNTmaster-new to me

The one on your link looks like a 900 with a petrol/ TVO engine and seems to have modified at some time, the front mudguards and seat look different, or it mat be a 30C with a later type bonnet, an unusual machine all the same. I tend to believe it is a 900 rather than a 30C The website, from New Z...
