John Sadd and Sons Garrett Tractor

I have been sent this great old photograph of a Garrett 4CD Tractor owned by John Sadd and Sons who were Timber Merchants of Maldon, Essex.

The engine was employed to haul timber from the forest surrounding Thetford, Suffolk to Maldon for sale within the business. The engine hasn't survived and I don't have a works number for the engine, if somebody knows this please drop me a message. Did John Sadd own any other engines? Any further information gratefully received.

Maybe you can help i was led to believe that the Foden timber tractor Little Lady SN 13444 Reg VX 1440 was once owned by Sydenhams Timber Co. Just after the war.
i have a cutting from a magazine that tells the story. as i am writing a book on the history of Sydenhams it would be nice to find out the truth.

Hello David
Interesting seeing all these old photos people put online of the Firm. My husbands name is Marty Sadd. He is the grandson of Harry William Sadd of Maldon. I was wondering if maybe the Essex Record office might have some information on the Garrett tractors. They have a huge amount of information on John Sadd and Sons.

a really interesting photograph. You might find that Leiston Long Shop Museum, Leiston, Suffolk has information/records relating to Garret engines. I think that this was the original Garret Works that produced the engines.

John Sadd also brought two Garrett Steam Tractors at the closing down sale in 1930 these were two of a batch of three unique three axle vertical boilered haulage tractors branded "Suffolk Punch" (not to be confused with the agricultural "Suffolk Punch" which is preserved)

The original concept behind these three was for export to South Africa how ever only one was sold to SA the other two staying in the UK unsold until the liquidation sale of Garrett's

I do have photos of these tractors and am currently building a model of one

I checked the old photo which is very inspirational picture for the new generation. I figured these keen cards can't be followed and are secure however thank god I come to realize this was just a fake. This https://www.argunners.com/best-films-world-war-ii-ever-existed/ has helped me to set aside my valuable cash and I need to thank the essayist for this extraordinary data.
