Shortly after WW2, Germinal-Rekard from Paris built small tractors, mainly using axles from old US army Dodge trucks. The engine used came from Austria, manufactured by Jenbacher, 16 and 20 HP. The tractor had 4 forward gears and a reverse gear. Brakes hydraulically assisted. Speed was about 16 kms/hr. It is unknown how many Germinal tractors have been built.
