Clayton & Shuttleworth of Lincoln were well known in the 19th and early 20th centuries for producing steam traction engines, threshing machines and other agricultural equipment. In 1916 they decided to venture into the tractor market, building a sturdy 35hp crawler tractor. This tractor was produced until the end of the 1920s and was used extensively for food production and haulage during World War I. In 1930 Clayton & Shuttleworth were taken over by Marshalls of Gainsborough.
