This tractor used to belong to Russell McIvor contractor of Te anau, and we used to drive it for him. We would love to see it again, and drive it - it was a top machine for its day.

I drove this tractor when it was new in 1965 mostly on the Takitimu block in the Te Anau basin. It was rated as 119HP then a month later international had an editorial in the Southland Times claiming to have the biggest tractor in the country also 119HP. I have seen one other D21 belonging to a Mr.Hill at St George in Queensland. I was most disappointed when after the great memories of this tractor I saw how small it was against todays tractors.
