 The David Brown Cropmaster


The long production run of Cropmaster tractors saw many new features pioneered by the company and did much to enhance the reputation for reliability and quality enjoyed by the David Brown tractor. With the introduction of the Cropmaster the company introduced the popular policy of including in the standard specification many items normally regarded as extras - at this time such items as hydraulic lift, swinging drawbar and electric lighting.


The 2-speed PTO, 6-speed gearbox, coil ignition and the high speed direct injection diesel engine were all introduced by David Brown in this period. The diesel engine was introduced in 1949 and developed 34 bhp at 1800 rev/min.
