Armed with quite a severe hangover and a pink camera (not mine). I must say it was a very good day. The museum is a credit to all those who put the time into the place and may it go from strength to strength. Sadly because of said hangover and pink camera (again not mine) I only took a couple of pic...

There were VAK1a, 30D and 850 based models. The 950 was available in three "taskmaster" options. Standard taskmaster, Turbo taskmaster and Super Turbo Taskmaster. I think they may have stopped with anymore variants as they were running out of room on the bonnet for anymore superfluous words.

The Prairie Cropmaster was a tarted up Cropmaster for the export market but predominantly for the Americans. Built from 1951 they would have all had the square front, and had a pan seat instead of the "bench" seat as previously discussed. According to my literature there was about 600 petrol/tvo mod...

Re: RE: Swap Shop? David Brown Style.

I know that most no all D.B 'nuts' covat and guard such things like a jealous Rotwieler with a large bone but thought it may be a good idea. You can say that again! Sounds like a grand idea, would we need X factor style auditions to find a Noel Edmonds look a like as an administrator? Or maybe use ...

The 100,000 tractor made was a standard 25D tractor was made on the 30th of May 1956 and was in a consignment of tractors for Sweden.

And TEZB is quite right "A David Brown will leak oil out somewhere no matter what model or year"

Not far off Lee - Salvage Squad! The early series were better than the last (when lady went solo). Ah yes I wasn't far off! I do know that the tall chap with the glasses, Jerry or something similar is now a regular reporter in "old tractor" magazine. Sadly there was never any tractors restored but ...

RE: stuck liners

Along the lines of bri308's "hazardous" methods, a long time back there was a programme series on channel 4 called Restoration Squad or something of that nature. They went around the country restoring machines, fire engines, amphibious cars the lot. I remember one particular programme the had to res...

RE: VAD 1C 100 1952

Hi Sven Hi Sven It will be a Diesel Cropmaster, if the year of 1952 is correct this is the last year they made them before switching to the 25D in 1953. To really confirm this ask for the serial number, if the serial number starts with "PD" it is a diesel cropmaster. If it starts with "PD25" its a 2...

RE: cropmaster ? serial numbers

Hi there Alnw260 You have the 141st Cropmaster made and was made in June 1947. I have the 281st and another earlier model Cropmaster and they have no "p" suffix on the serial numbers. The gearbox you have would be a four speed gearbox (3 forward one reverse). May I ask what kind of PTO unit does it ...

Hi scooby Believe or not our 990 hadn't ploughed a furrow in its life until last week! She was bought new by a drainage company who used her to pull trailers full of gravel. She was then sold on to a company who used her to pull static homes around which she was ideal at with the 12 speed box and 4 ...

Hi Scooby All of the 990 4wd (pre orange and white selene axle) were 12 speed, ours is and the sale literature also states that the 12 speed was the only box available. But with David Brown you can never be 100% certain that a tractor didnt leave the factory with a 6 speed box. Don't know how much t...
