The Case tractor at left was built in the 1940s by JI Case which was purchased by the Tennaco Corporation who took control of International Harvester's tractor operations in 1985 and became CASE IH. The two lines were merged and the large IH tractors were dropped in favour of the Case models. In 1999, Case IH merged with New Holland to form CNH Global. CNH continues to manufacture tractors under the Case IH brand.

The name of the Zetor tractors is derived from a combination of the letter “Z”, representing the logo of the arms factory in Brno (Zbrojovka Brno) where the company had been founded, and the suffix “or” of “tractor”. Mass production started in 1946 and the Zetor trademark was registered in the same year. In 1952, Zetor moved to a new location within Brno, Líšeň. In 1968, the Unified Series II was launched which featured a number of innovations including the first safety cabin with rollover protection system in the world. The Zetor 6911 model was launched in 1976. For another view of this tractor see > LinkExternal link.
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.
