Hunting tractors down and around Argentina



Every single product ever made by mankind is plausible of becoming a collectible if, and only if, it features a unique design input, style and works as a turning point in some way to society and culture.

Thereafter, the fact that working machines of great ingenious and whit such as early 20th century tractors are very interesting collectibles is no stranger to us.

As most of our readers know, we take upon customized hunts for fellow collectors seeking for their precious items in our region. And that was the case with this tractor hunt. We don’t usually publish each and every single hunt we make, but in this particular case the research process bewitched us deeply for the historical and technical virtues of these items.

Hunting down tractors has been an amazing experience, and more precisely the story of David Brown tractors.

According to the information we accessed David Brown involvement in farm machinery began in 1936 when the company, then a subsidiary of the local family firm David Brown and Sons (Huddersfield) Ltd., collaborated with Mr. Harry Ferguson in the manufacture of the legendary Ferguson-Brown Tractor.

The Ferguson-Brown model was the world's first production tractor to be equipped with hydraulic lift and converging 3-point linkage; a revolutionary concept within the industry.



The first David Brown model was exhibited at the 1939 Royal Show, but soon came the Second World War and production had to cease. David Brown Company became Britain's third largest farm tractor manufacturer, featuring the Royal Warrant and winning several Queens’ Awards to Industry for export achievement (four out of every five David Brown tractors are sold overseas). Most of which came to Argentina or other tight commercial relationships.



We will be posting soon further information on this particular tractor we’ve been hunting down, with photos and details.
