Upton Engineering was an Australian builder of high-horsepower 2-wheel-drive tractors from 1968 to 1978, during a time when the foreign manufacturers did not import suitable machines into Australia. Only a few local manufactures evolved from building one-off specials for there own use to building a few for other farmers. Upton is based in Corowa, NSW, Australia. The company's founder is notable for designing 2WD tractors that were, and still are, better than most others, including most 4WD of similar power.

HistoryEdit

The company was started by Arthur Upton in 1944 in Corowa, New South Wales, Australia. Today Upton Engineering manufactures solar tracking machines and centre pivot irrigators. [1]
