DUTRA Tractor Works also known as ´´Red Star Tractorworks´´ was a Hungarian builder of tractors. Based in Budapest, Hungary, the company manufactured tractors from 1957-1975. DUTRA was an acronym for DUmper TRActor. Previously, the company was known as HSCS (Hofherr Schranz Clayton and Shuttelworth), or simply HSCS, which was related to Hoffer-Schranz, Hofherr HSCS. It later evolved into what is today RÁBA.


Small numbers ( about 200 ) were exported to the UK and all around Europe in the 1960's and 70´s. Largest importer was East Germany with a number of 4500 pieces of D4K and D4K-B. Sweden has imported about 120 Dutras, and 65 still remaining. Cuba has also imported about 120 pieces of D4K between 1960 and 1963. They were also exported to New Zealand.[1] They were imported under the name DUTRA-LeRobuste in France.

With some cooperation from Steyr, there was a DUTRA Steyr model(s) built in 1968 using a Steyr WD 610 6 cylinder engine.
