These early tractors were not common in the UK and were soon supersede by the more compact and efficient 'Modern' tractors like the mass produced Fordson.

Few examples have survived and most are probably modern imports from the United States and Canada. It is believed that only about 5 examples exist in the UK.

  • Avery 8-16 no. 8393 pictured here owned by Mr. G. Gregory of Spalding is a rare running example in the UK.
  • Please list more examples here from the UK or in other countries including museums
