Hi
according to my search your tractor was made in 1953(but please don't take this for granted).

some parts that will suit your tractor can be purchased from:

No two tractors of the same model were built or left the factory exactly the same, some were subtly different in certain aspects, especially those that were coming to the end of their production period or the beginning of another. The ones you find with most differences are those at the beginning of a new range in that some were fitted with parts from the 'old' model as parts were being used up from the previous ones. You will find that this is most notable in the 1950's produced models, for example, some late VAK1C tractors, the Cropmaster, were fitted with the square front casting and when the diesels came in some had the bench seat and Cropmaster wide wings and some had the steel single pan seat and shell wings and vice versa. I have a very early 1954 25D that should really have been a diesel Cropmaster as it has mainly Cropmaster parts fitted, such as drawbar and hitch assembly and the flat brass 'threepenny bit' grease nipples that were discontinued 3 years earlier.

A 30C

Post by prblake » Sat Jan 22, 2011 9:03 am

I think with that number your tractor is a first series 30C
in which case, according to Colin Howell it will have Cropmaster panel work ie dual seat wide gaurds and a scuttle.

Does it have 30C badges on the bonnet sides?

As I noted back in Jan 2011 the serial number P45862 is for a first series 30C built between Mar 1953 and February 1954. The source for this is "The David Brown Story" by Allan Condie and John Melloy.
