The Deutz Model FIM 414 tractor first appeared in 1936. It was specifically designed with the small farmer in mind and was known as the smallholder's tractor. The FIM 414 remained in production virtually unchanged until 1951.

The history of Deutz can be traced back to Nikolaus Otto (German engineer who in the early 1860s created the first internal-combustion engine that used the four-stroke cycle, providing an alternative power source to steam), Gottlieb Daimler (German engineer and inventor who with Carl Benz, whom he never met personally, simultaneously developed the world's first 4-wheeled car and the world's first motorcycle) and the first combustion engines. Agricultural machinery production began in 1907, and after WW2 the tractors produced by the company were very popular in western Europe, as farmers liked the simple, rugged air-cooled diesel engines. In 1969, Deutz mergered with Fahr, a farm implements manufacturer. The company was purchased by SAME in 1995.
Marsham Starting Handle Club Summer Show 2017
The show, the seventh in as many years, was held over the weekend of 12/13th August. It is growing bigger every year. More than 500 exhibitors displayed their tractors, stationary engines, vintage lawnmowers and agricultural implements, but there is much more to see on the 13-acres site which adjoins Orchard Cottage in Allison Street, such as several rare, "dancing" dual drive Doe-built tractors, classic and military vehicles and motorcycles, demonstrations in the parade ring of working gun and sheep dogs and demonstrations of old-time ploughing and harvesting in a crop field nearby. For the first time since its restoration the Soame steam wagonette was featured. The first tractor pulling event in the county for 27 years was also held here (in 2013). Fairground organs create just the right atmosphere, a bouncy castle provides entertainment for the younger visitors, and a variety of stalls can be sampled in the fun fair section of the site. Food vendors guarantee that no-one will be going home hungry.

According to Bob Parke, the site owner and one of the organisers, the show featured 350 tractors, over 100 classic cars, and about 80 motorcycles and had about 2,500 visitors.
