No one can dispute that one of the leaders, in traction and ‘big’ tractors of years gone by was County Commercial Cars Ltd, formed in 1929. The small manufacturing firm was set up by two brothers, Ernest and Percy Tapp, who joined engineering talent with a business mind to form a striving company. Concentrating its early work on vehicles for the transportation of goods and military vehicles, post-war development saw the company look towards agricultural machines such as tracked crawlers.
One of the first developments in this field was known as the County Full-Track – a lightweight machine based on the Fordson E27N Major. This lead to a new direction and the company turned its attentions to agricultural and industrial machines.
