Detailed Description
Glasgow Tractor. Glasgow Three-Wheel-Drive tractor - Scotland (1919-1924). At the time of its manufacture, the Glasgow was the only tractor being built in Scotland. The Glasgow was an attempt to compete with the Fordson tractor in the UK market. The most unusual feature was drive to all three wheels. Its 3 point stability and tractive power made it popular in hill country and waterlogged soils, and it did find favour overseas, with several exported to New Zealand.
