Foster

Decades ago we found a FOSTER along the road in the northern part of the Netherlands. Foster was known for producing threshing machines, regarded as among the best available. They also made traction engines and steam tractors. We got the permission to take a lot of pictures which are shown by the link.

Warchalowski

On our road exploring Austria we met the blue Warchalowski. These tractors by origin are from Jacob WARCHALOWSKI in Vienna. During WW2 the Warchalowskis met a lot of troubles, but thereafter stationary engines were re-created until an air-cooled diesel engine was developed, which was then installed as standard from 1956 in their high quality tractors of which a lot are up and running still.

Svoboda


In the area of the village Geldelaar ( east of the Netherlands ) we met 'Mr Jan' who turned out to have a stock of special tractors, including a beautiful SVOBODA in a fairly good condition. On the internet we found the information of this Czech tractor brand we wanted to keep.

Lanz Bulldog


The TRACTOR of tractors, manufactured in Germany of which the production started in 1921 and various versions of the Bulldog were produced up to 1960. The Lanz Bulldog was one of the most popular German tractors, running on several fuels. The name "Bulldog" is widely used in Germany as a synonym for tractors still. We found a lot of them.

Landini


The second TRACTOR of tractors. We found a great example by the collection of Jan in Gelselaar ( in the Netherlands ) and it is exposed by pictures and a movie by this website. Landini was founded by Giovanni Landini in 1884 to produce agricultural equipment. Landini started making tractors in 1925, so about 100 years ago ! We do like the power and especially the sound of these machines very much ! Agree ? LANDINI

Fortschritt


Such a typical tractor this Fortschritt from the former DDR with an all wheel drive system which enables itself automatically using a roller-type overrunning clutch if the wheel slip is greater than 7–8 %. A great example as found rather nearby at the isle of Voorne-Putten and performed at Goedereede exhibition/farmers' day 2019. Very friendly owners which allowed taking pictures and gave an explanation. FORTSCHRITT
