The firm of Coleby Cultivators Ltd based in Kent built a light weight tractor in the post war years like many other engineering firms. The tractor was mainly constructed from a cast alloy body like the Ferguson-Brown and was fitted with a 2-cylinder TVO Engine from JAP a 3 speed gear box and a basic linkage, but had no brakes !!!

Do you know of another as the owner believes it is the only example left which makes it rarer than some others makes like the Cartterson.

I have found another Coleby Cultivators ltd, tractor, but powered by a BSA engine. It has a plough, a harrow and mower with it, and the various linkages. However it has no rear mud-guards.
