Footnotes

  • The BMB tractor was built by Brockhouse Engineering of Southport, a company best remembered for manufacturing the Corgi miniature folding motorcycle. BMB stood for British Motor Boats, the tractor's designer, which had been importing American Simplicity tractors prior to WW2. Built as an affordable machine using post-war surplus production capacity, the BMB was available as a small market-garden tractor or as a walk-behind unit for pulling cultivation equipment. As such they were ideal for cultivating the many small vegetable plots that helped alleviate the effects of continued rationing in the UK during the late 1940s and early 1950s. Specially adapted vineyard and orchard versions were available alongside the standard model. Powered by a 918cc four-cylinder Morris industrial engine, the President model was built from 1947 to 1956 when falling sales led to its withdrawal from the market. The stock of spares was transferred to H J Stockton & Company Ltd, who redesigned the BMB to take either a Ruston & Hornsby or Petter engine, selling these revised models as Stokold tractors from 1956 to 1960.

    Not touched for some 20 years, this BMB President is presented in 'barn find' condition and offered for restoration.
