Ernest Doe & Sons is a long established family firm with a network of branches in the South and East of England. The company started in 1898 with the lease of a blacksmith shop in Ulting near Maldon, Essex. During the 1950s, they were selling the products of several tractor manufacturers but when, in the late 1950s, local farmers were asking for a more powerful tractor to work the heavy land, the company launched its own tractor the Doe Dual Drive (commonly known as the Doe Triple D). This tractor is a combination of two Fordson Super Major tractor units > LinkExternal link minus their front wheels but with a turntable slung between them. This created a four wheel drive, articulated tractor, which at 100 horsepower, was twice as powerful as most other tractors on the market.
