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]
