Le Percheron was a brand of tractor built in France from 1946 to 1956. The Tractors were a copy of the Lanz Hot-bulb engine tractor. The name was from a breed of heavy draft horse. They were built by the Societe Nationale de Construction Aeronautique du Centre (SCNAC). Only about 3,700 were built.[1]

Preserved machines[edit | edit source]

There is a fine example in the UK which is shown here are there any more (some others are in Europe that are linked to below).

  • This is No. 44 and the web site below talks of 200 being built pre war so tthis may be a pre war one.
  • The one in the photo gallery on tripod.com is no. 160
