David Brown Tractors

Post by fatfarmerglenn » Tue Apr 02, 2019 11:03 pm

We had DB tractors on the farm when I was young (1970s and into the 1980s). Wondered if any modders might do a DB tractor pack, similar to the MF pack from FS17? Would be great to see some UK spec tractors from that era.

Thoughts?

I would love to see the old white David Browns in FS19.

I also remember DB on my family farm when I was young. We had a 996 and always remember it being used to grind the corn at the corn shed.

My Great-Grandfather had one. My dad and him used it for skidding logs for firewood mostly with a little brush hogging. In the summer my Great-Grandpa would use it to help a good friend of ours rake hay with an old rolabar.

As for being in farming simulator. I'm not sure how easy this would be due to the licensing.

If somebody does make them the probability of them being PC only is 99.9% due to no license

DB was merged with Case. IDK the terms of Giants license with Case IH

The Maxxum line might be manufactured in what was a DB factory in Basildon, England.

Random fact - if you buy an Aston Martin car with a DB prefix it stands for David Brown. So James Bond is tractor driver :)

What matty said.

FS has some AGCO stuff but they don't have Allis-Chalmers.
FS has some Case IH stuff but they don't have International.
FS has some New Holland stuff but they don't have Ford.

IP and licensing are complicated.
