Upton's Engineering was an Australian builder of high-horsepower 2-wheel-drive tractors from 1968 to the early 1980s when the big brands 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 was (and still is) based in Corowa, NSW, Australia.

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.&nbsp [1]
