Bristol farm tractors

Bristol was a UK based tractor manufacturer that was located in England. The company offered compact crawler tractors and thus could only satisfy the needs of individuals and small businesses. However, these machines were regarded as high-quality right from Bristol's inception, and as a result, the company saw great sales figures in its early years of operation. In the formative days, it collaborated with the Douglas Motorcycle Company, and the partnership lasted for a while before Bristol allied with the Jowlett automobile manufacturer. In the years that followed, Marshall purchased Bristol and merged it into the Track Marshall Group. As a result, the company's presence on the list of tractor manufacturers has all but vanished. Spare parts became scarce, and even products that remained in service after the acquisition soon ceased to function. This is why no Bristol product exists today. Bristol branded a total of four tractor models, all of which had a paltry 22 horsepower. Even back then, these small machines were simply incapable of meeting the needs and wants of the majority of farmers. These four models were 10, 20, 22 and 25.
