Product Information

Tractors In The Shire

The internal combustion tractor has been the power source of choice for farmers for over a century, and has allowed dramatic changes to take place in agriculture over that time.

This DVD looks at some of the machines that have helped drive that change, such as the U-frame Wallis, the Standard Fordson and the little Grey Fergie, along with some that proved to be interesting side-tracks, like the Massey-Harris Universal Tractor, the Maclaren Mobile Windlass, a Vickers Aussie and a WWII Sherman tank converted into a 375hp agricultural tractor - a fine example of turning swords into ploughshares!

Working sequences include a pair of Maclaren machines hauling a massive Fowler mole plough back and forth across the field, four different tractors working as a potato planting team, two working binders, one hauled by a Caterpiller D2 and the other by a green Fordson model N, and a variety of machines running threshing sets, ploughing and cultivating.

Also featured is a Fowler Gyrotiller, one of the first International TracTracTor crawlers, a Henderson trenching machine fitted to a Fordson model N, a single cylinder Landini driving a flour mill and a massive American Post Brothers plough capable of turning over a furrow more than three feet deep.
