The World Agricultural Tractor Trials of 1930 in Oxfordshire were a major event in the history of farm tractors in Britain. 36 tractors from seven different countries were present, ranging from massive crawlers to three motor cultivators for market gardeners.
Among the machines to be seen are five of the earliest Caterpillar models, a four-wheel drive French Latil, three Peter Brotherhood tractors, a Vickers Aussie, two Swedish Munktells, a Linke crawler from Germany and what is probably the only Hungarian-British HCSC in the world.
Machines from Case, Massey Harris and Marshall are also featured as well as one of the few failures of the trials, the Fordson Model N, which went on to become one of the world's most successful tractors.
