I have just returned from vacation up at my families cottage in Northwestern Vermont. While I was there I deliveried Maynard's HB-116 that we picked up eariler this year. Had a quick but very nice visit. Anyway, while up in what I consider "GOD'S" country i did my usual tractor hunting. There is a place I always stop in the Swanton/ST. Alban area. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/rob-b/david%20brown1.JPG[/img] When i saw this tracor from the road i thought i had finally found myself an Allis Chalmers "G"! [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/rob-b/david%20brown2.JPG[/img] but upon closer inspection, its the "English" version. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/rob-b/david%20brown3.JPG[/img] It was sold at there April Auction, but sales person doesn't remember how much it sold for. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/rob-b/david%20brown5.JPG[/img] Just had to let the club see it. I had never heard of a DAVID BROWN!

I do know there are quite a few David brown tractors around N.C. I see them for sale every now and then. Belive the inventor was from England.

David Brown was an English tractor company. It was purchased by J.I. Case Corporation somewhere in the late 60's or early 70's. Pat

My cousins in County Donegal, Ireland have one exactly like that. In fact, I tuned and tweaked it last time I was there. I was suprised and impressed with the machine's abilities. It's a very nefty little machine.
