Part One of the definitive three part history of the one of the world’s most famous farm tractor manufacturers – David Brown. Duke Video is proud to publish this unique video collection, which every tractor fan will enjoy for years to come. Producer David Wood presents unique film footage of David Brown tractors hard at work in several exotic locations around the world. With well over 80% of the tractors manufactured destined for export, DB products can be found in over 100 countries.
We kick-off our ‘mini David Brown world tour’ in Nigeria - featuring DB 950s working hard on building sites in Lagos. After a look at Nigerian importers Leventis Motors, we see DB tractors towing trailers at the airport and find DB 950s down at the docks. There is a Hurricane Harvester clearing the jungle, and locals training with a DB 950 and a disc plough. Moving on to Syria - we see the contrast between oxen ploughing and Britain’s finest tractors, along with DB 950 tractors driving a stone crusher and pumping water for irrigation. Out in Ceylon, David Brown tractors are caught on film doing the work of elephants! In the Philippines, we find various types of tractors hard at work on a large sugar plantation. Meanwhile out in the Far East, DB tractors get a taste of the orient working in paddy fields. Moving on to the USA - we visit the company’s stand at an agricultural show. And finally we complete the world tour by joining DB 950’s out shrimping in the dangerous shifting sands of Morecambe Bay in the UK.
