The Peterbro tractor was built by Peter Brotherhood Limited of Peterborough from 1920 till the mid 1930s.

HistoryEdit

Main article: Peter Brotherhood Ltd

The Peter Brotherhood company had a long history in the railway industry before branching out into the tractor market in the 1920s. The tractor was shown at the Royal show of 1920 and also won a bronze medal at the Royal Agricultural Societies show at Lincoln, being beaten to first place by a British Wallis tractor..

The tractor used a complicated but powerful paraffin engine from Ricardo.

The tractor developed 30 hp which was large for the British market at that time. They were more popular in Australia and New Zealand.
