    1594 2.jpg 1594 Turbo which was supplied new by Riverlea Tractors complete with its turbo charger.
    We will rebuild it when time allows. Could really do with a different bonnet as this one is full of holes

    Was the turbo fitted by dealer? Wouldn’t have been an option on a 1594 in the factory? Nice to have a white one. I always preferred them to the reds

    Lovely!! The 880 would be earning its keep pulling 3 scores? I would like a DB plough the same for mine at some time.

    It would probably pull four in good going, but it would not lift them!

    Brilliant photo, could have been made for a DB brochure!

    Why the 1410 back wheels on a 1212?

    Ha Ha, as a matter of fact the picture was taken for DB Tractor News, Mrs N worked in the telephone exchange at DB and arranged it via the publicity dept. One of the original copies Mrs N has tucked away, this one is taken from Gibbard Tractors.

    The rear wheels were actually made for 1212 as an alternative fitment and fitted with 15 x 30 tyres, later fitted 14 x 34 wheels to increase road speed slightly.
