1960 Chamberlain Canelander

May 12, 2010

This tractor was featured for the month of May in the 2010 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.


G’day Mate! That’s a salutation from Australia, and so is the tractor. Chamberlain tractors were built in Welshpool from 1949 to 1986. The Canelander was a short-run model made from 1959 to 1968 and has an adjustable tread for row-crop cane; most were standard-tread models. Deere bought a stake in the company in the 1970s, and it became Chamberlain John Deere. However, it was more profitable for Deere to import its own tractors, so production ceased—and Chamberlains are now quite collectible. This one’s rated at 60 hp.
