3 Wheeled Row Crop Tractors

Octobers focus will be on 3 wheeled row crop tractors.

Row crop tractors are designed specifically to be used in the cultivation of ROW CROPS (like sunflower, canola, cotton, safflower, buckwheat maize soybeans sugar beet etc.

Here we look at a variety of 3 wheeled (Or with the 2 front wheels very close together) row crop tractors rather than 4 wheeled vehicles.

Narrow front axles caused the tractor to be less stable but because the tractors didn’t corner very fast that was not a problem. 3 wheelers spread the contact patch with the soil and so reduce compaction.

The Pictorial History of David Brown Tractors

From the very beginnings, with David Browns partnership with Harry Ferguson to produce the first Grey Fergie (The Ferguson Brown), right through to the first tractor not to bear the David Brown name on the side, this book highlights and displays the main models produced in David Browns glorious history.

The book is A3 size (38.5cm by 29.5cm), contains 32 full page colour images of David Brown Models as they appeared from 1936. (While not every model appears here the main development of the David brown mark is documented)

The hard back cover protects the metallic type paper inside which adds a shimmery appearance while ensuring your pictures remain brilliant and crisp.
