Part two of a 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 David Brown’s scrapbook featuring tractors galore. Firstly there’s a DB 770 with its three-cylinder engine and 12 speed gearbox, ploughing at different depths, crop spraying and mowing.
On to the David Brown 1200 Selectomatic with its 72 hp engine and a separate hand operated clutch in action ploughing, rotovating, muck spreading and harvesting potatoes. The action continues with snow clearing duties for one DB 950 tractor fitted with front mounted brush roller as it tackles the worst of the wintertime weather. In the next section, we take a look at the unusual DB Hurricane Offset Harvester, which cuts in offset, but transports in line. This is followed closely by the DB 950 Implematic in action with its one main control lever that controls all the implements with and without depth control wheels. The final section of this fascinating scrapbook shows a DB 950 Implematic taken straight off the assembly line and run for 6 days non stop – yes, non stop ploughing with a four furrow 12" David Brown Albion plough to a depth of 7 inches.
