Benbros Qualitoys

Farm Tractor and Roller

One way of expanding the Farm Equipment range was to use the existing Ferguson Tractor and add a farm implement to create a new model combination.

 

The Tractor used was the second type Ferguson Tractor painted orange with black wheels and green driver, or pale-orange with blue wheels and blue driver.

 

Among the dies which Benbros bought from Timpo Toys in 1951 was a Horse-drawn Roller which Benbros re-issued and then later re-cast for towing behind a tractor. The original seat was kept but there was no extra figure provided for it. Underneath the seat the 'Timpo' name was blanked out. 'Made in England' was cast under the frame. 

 

The Roller had a few different colour combinations, yellow with unpainted rollers, yellow with yellow rollers, or red with yellow rollers. 

 

As with the other Farm Equipment models, the Tractor with Roller was packed in a multi-model end-flap box with illustrations on all four sides and yellow end-flaps stating 'Benbros Qualitoys'. At one end there was a blank panel for the model name 'Farm Tractor & Roller' to be stamped.

 

This model is hard to find.
