Hi everyone! I'm still new to this forum, but been round tractors all my life and been heavily involved in other clubs and forums for years.
Anyways, I won't bore you all with my life story :lol: But my David Brown story however, I will tell you a wee bit about... I have had tractors in my life since I was born, from MF's and John Deeres to Internationals and even a Winget 550. But I had never been able to get my hands on a DB til last year (2015) when one popped up for sale on a local Facebook page. Naturally I jumped at the chance to own this poor tractor listed as needing a "little bit of tlc". (As you will see in the video, it needed a wee bit more then tlc :lol: ) I am not a true loyal to a specific manufacturer, as a plant mechanic I just appreciate the chance to own, restore, look after and learn about all the different designs created by the brilliant engineer's and designers of years gone by. This video is also the first ever video I have made using video editing software (so try and take it easy on me haha) and I will post more videos as the restoration process continues.
Feel free to inform me of anything I should have done differently or should do in the future (don't worry, I don't take criticism bad :P )


Hope you all enjoy :)
