Hi rich The tractors in question from that era are the Cropmaster and 25/30 series tractors. Here's is a scan from the parts book of Cropmaster tractor outlining the contents of the tool kit. http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii170/leeroebuck/cropkit.jpg I was lucky enough to get half a tool kit wi...

This "selectamatic" era kit appeared on eBay last year and made over £100!! It shows the said tools that powerrabbit described. The adjustable wrench and wood handled screwdriver were also in the cropmaster tool kit. http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii170/leeroebuck/cb90_11.jpg http://i264.phot...

Hi all Sadly it was cancer, he will be greatly missed as he was the only person making most of the bits he did. I managed to get a few bits from Peter Williams but John tended to only make bits to order so I don't think Peter will have much left. I did email the powers that be on the site to take do...

RE: cambridge sale

Strange just checked the online catalogue and theres no mention of the 880 4wd but there is mention of a 990 4wd, will definitely be there if it is a 990 with my camera in hand. Anyone wanting to have a look at the catalogue, click on the link and type either "David" or "David Brown" http://www.chef...

RE: DB Plought

Hi there

There was some discussion on PU1 ploughs earlier on this year http://dbtc.co.uk/index.php?name=PNphpB ... highlight= There's a picture of one at the bottom of the thread.

If you go to the sale some pictures would be nice especially of the PLOUGH.

Hi Tim I guess those tugs are from the Arfix short stirling kit, I've always hung my nose over a kit but I know if I get one I'll end up building the plane too. Here's the list I can remember of models produced with the David Brown name, if anyone can think of anymore please add them to the list. VA...

Hi Tim Great idea for a thread I too collect David Brown models, they tend to have not been produced as readily as other marques. I think the earliest models I have are the dinky 990's and 995s, the 995 i got from America which arrived in a cardboard envelope!! As well as later models such as the co...

RE: Re: RE: couple of photos I found

I love old pictures like these they really to highlight how agriculture has changed! Thanks for posting them Revs.
I was offered a couple of Nuffields with this type of rear axle but a previous owner had cut them down, so as Scooby has said I bet he got sick of causing damage.

I know not related to the first tractors exported but I remember someone asking in a previous thread a bit back about tractors being exported to Australia. Heres a couple of interesting pictures if you've not seen them before. http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii170/leeroebuck/237960PD1955.jpg http...

My father is still hiding his copies of his service school pictures very well but he remembers that the chap on the far left with the white jacket on was the "head instructor" Did you ever run into any chaps from Newark Farm Machinery on your trips DB780?
