SHUNTmaster- new to me

Post by Ozz-DB » Sun Apr 25, 2010 9:35 am

Dear all,
I was "Googling" (nasty habit)
"David Brown 30C" and found this, from
New Zealand.

1956 David Brown 30C Shuntmaster.

I have never heard of "Shuntmaster" before.

Another "- master" name to add to my DB
master file!

Was the "Shuntmaster" a factory built DB or
an aftermarket build?

I dont think there was a DB called a Shuntmaster but there were shunting attachments to fit to taskmasters. the one on your link looks like a 900 with a petrol/ TVO engine and seems to have modified at some time, the front mudguards and seat look different, or it mat be a 30C with a later type bonnet, an unusual machine all the same.

I tend to believe it is a 900 rather than a 30C

The website, from New Zealand, is excellent, although there are a few questionable model identifications in the various brands displayed.

If you can't get enough pictures of DB tractors visit-
