The David Brown Tractor Company has been around for years, although the company didn’t produce the first tractor until 1939 now one of the biggest tractor companies in the world, the David Brown Tractor company mainly focused on manufacturing different patterns for cast gears, starting in 1860.

The rose badge logo spotted on all David Brown Tractors and also has a good bit of history behind it. In the 13th century a civil war raged in England; specifically between two people from two different towns; the Duke of York and the Earl of Lancaster. The Duke of Lancaster wore a white rose emblem, and the Earl of Yorkshire wore a red rose. The two countries later adopted these emblems to represent each country.

In 1955 David Brown Tractor Company acquired the old Harrison, McGregor Company located in Lancaster. The main tractor company was located in Yorkshire, and since both locations worked together to produce farming equipment, the rose badge was created to unite the two companies and the two countries.

The David Brown Company was named after David Brown, but David Brown Tractors seem to be more associated with David Brown’s grandson, Sir David Brown because the original David Brown died in 1902, years before the company manufactured the first tractor. The David Brown Tractor Company has a number of different tractor makes and models from 1939 to 1988. David Brown Tractors have been designed throughout the years for a number of different purposes.

By the end of World War 1 to 1000 as they started making warship propulsion units, and by 1921 was known as the largest company for producing worm gears. David Brown designed tractors for the royal air force to use as aircraft tugs and also assist with pulling bomb trolleys to help rearm the aircrafts. The David Brown Tractor Company is currently producing heavy transmission systems for industrial, defence and marine applications, currently producing the transmission for the British Challenger 2 tanks, and the American M2/M3 Bradley Fighting Vehicles.

After World War 2 the David Brown Tractor company began mass producing their tractors once again, and sales continued to rise, with the company being bought by several different companies until 1988 when the David Brown Tractor Company finally closed down the Melham factory stopping the production of David Brown Tractors. Many tractor lovers around England still have David Brown Tractors, and service them regularly to keep them up and running, however; finding parts for certain makes and models are extremely hard to come by now that the factory for producing those parts has closed down.

Whether you love David Brown Tractors or you absolutely hate them, you have to love the history behind the David Brown Company. The David Brown Tractor company didn’t last as long as several tractor companies, but the things they have been involved in producing have had a tremendous effect on history itself, and the David Brown transmission that have been produced, definitely changed the way we fought wars at one time.
