On the left hand side of the web page is a list and on the list is a section named 'DB Serial Numbers. Go there and you will open a mine field of information. Also in one of the columns the...

I operated a case backhoe for 14 years, each morning after checking all fluid levels I would start the tractor and as it was warming up go around and grease it, 2 pumps of the gun every day. Never loast any time due to worn steering or pins and the cost of a bit of grease certainly saved downtime an...

I knew there was something different about it. Even as it was presented to us it kept screamimg to both of us "buy me, take me home" so we did and it will arrive between Christmas and New Year. So that gives me time to organise some space for it to live in.

Hi everyone, thanks for the replies. I think I have worked it out and after reading what Jules has written all the number work out as being a Cropmaster from 1953-4. Tractor does have dual fuel tanks and a dual seat. Sorry about misleading you with the tractor serial number, it is a 'P' not a '2'. I...

Found the info here in this Forum,
CAK - cropmaster type, agricultural & kero
4 cylinder
3 - 3 5/8" bore
6072 - engine number

Tractor Serial number is a 'P' not '2' and the numbers 45770 date it as 1953 - 1954.

Anyone know where I can ourchase a scuttle plate and side covers?

How old is this one

We looked at a David Brown 30C, we think, with some numbers for the engine starting CAK 4 3 6072 AND SERIAL NUMBER 2.45770. Tractor is Cropmaster petrol/kero model but is missing scuttle plate and side covers. Just trying to work out its age if someone can help please.

Went to look at the tractor this morning. As expected not as complete as I would like but the basics are good. Missing scuttle plate and side covers which a re a big problem as they appear to be almost impossible to get. How can I tell the approximate age of the tractor? Engine Number starts with CA...

Sorry for the delayed response but thank you Jules for posting that 25C. I had been watching that one and 2 others but with no outcome. We are looking at one locally this weekend so hopefully all will be good. I am not expecting much with the one we are looking at as the asking price alone is low. T...
