David Brown Threasherman, one of only 184 made. the yellow taskmaster in the background was described as "used in WWII to pull aircraft around airfields" just above the production date was 1947!

I was there myself today and must say that the 900 with the 6 cyl engine was a superb job, you would have thought it came out of the factory and not a retro job.

Hi james, to be honest there were only two or three white davids there! a 770 or 780 cant remember which, a 880 (with paint so thick on the gearbox top you could hardly read the gear numbers that are embossed on it!) oh and a CASE 1294 which had been stickered up with "David Brown" stickers.

Hopefully some other people who went took pictures.
