David Brown


David Brown Overseas
Narrated by Alan Stennett
David Brown exported tractors and farm machinery all over the world, from the frozen mountains of Scandinavia to the tropical forests of Africa, and the company's film crews followed the tractors wherever they went.

Fortunately, many of those films were preserved, and their fascinating glimpses of international agriculture from half a century ago have been used for this third volume of the David Brown on Film series.

The material includes an 'International Rescue' operation to get a PTO case to a snow-bound farmer in Norway, a State Fair in the USA, fruit farming in the Lebanon, rice and scrub clearance in Ghana.

Tractors and implements from the 1940s to the 1970s can be seen at work in everything from dusty desert roads to swampy paddy fields, and the crops grown include rice, sugar cane, maize, bananas, ground nuts and grapes.

David Brown was a major name in British machinery exports, and this video shows it all, and its products, at the height of their fame.

Archive Films from David Brown Tractors
On this DVD we see six original David Brown films, produced in their heyday, that demonstrate the company’s total commitment to quality and dependability. After a short introduction to the David Brown Company, it shows the films complete without any editing. Our collection was produced in the nineteen seventies and early eighties, the classic period for tractors in this country and spans models from the 885 to the 1690.

The films illustrate the amazing versatility of their machines, demonstrating how they could be quickly and easily switched from job to job, so getting the maximum out of them. Concentrating on reliability, long life and low running costs, these were the fundamentals that made David Brown tractors such a sound investment.
