Kent Ford Dealers was group of Ford tractor agents (dealers) that grouped together to offer specialist tractors for the Kent areas fruit growers. They built and sold tractors and machinery adapted for this specialist market. Mainly reduced width equipment for Orchard work. The firm of Stormont Engineering built the orchard tractors by cutting down the axles on various Fordson tractor models.

Tractors in preservationEdit

A few of these tractors are appearing on the rally circuit as they are cleared out of sheds from redundant orchars and fruit farms. They also have that bit of a difference about them to creat a bit more interest both among collectors looking for the quirky and visitors with a "Whats that factor".
