this Lanz looks like something Eddie Hill would drag race with those dual back tires... which aren't the typical chevron looking deep tractor tread design.


  1. it's a so called "strassenschlepper", also a tractor for road use

  2. Those one lung Lanz tractors are so cool. Don't know where this one is from, but in Germany it wasn't uncommon to have farmers selling fresh produce from the back of their wagons, and street tires would last a whole lot longer on pavement than the soft ag tires. These had a funny little quirk in that if they were idled down slow enough they could misfire and run in the opposite rotation. The operator would then hop on, rev the engine drop the clutch and go flying backward-in first gear.
