The David Brown Tractor

Tales from Wales: In which Josephine Roberts tells the story of how she came to acquire her rusty, temperamental, yet devilishly handsome, David Brown tractor.

Whilst the David Brown tractor certainly can’t be described as restored, we have given it quite a service. Apart from repairing the mudguards, manifold and radiator, we also fitted a new seat base, brake shoes, linings, rods, springs and kingpin bushes. All the oils were drained and the filters were replaced, for the first time in what looked like 50 years! We also bought new front tires and secondhand ones for the back.
