County Down Traction Engine Club

Notice Board


CDTEC is keen to move with the times and  is pleased to announce that we are now active on Facebook – check out “Down Tractor Drivers” and join in the banter.


TractorJoe - Tractor Parts

A link to the TractorJoe website has been added to the links page. The company is based in the USA but it might be useful for that hard to find part. An introductory credit note is available to club members ordering for the first time - contact the chairman for the order code necessary to receive that credit

A big thank you to all who braved the wet conditions and came to support our Easter road run in Donaghadee.


We had over 60 entries and raised £1200 which will be presented to Leukemia and  Lymphoma Research at our April Meeting.


Special thanks also to the club members and their families who put in the effort to make it happen, those who provided premises, allowed access to Portavoe Estate, donated food, provided ballot prizes and made other donations.


Once again the community came together to support a worthy cause and we value that support immensely.


Thanks again.


Trevor McBurney

Chairman, CDTEC
