Tractor Lanz Bulldog from 1939

A long time ago I heard old farmers speak with admiration about their indestructible Lanz Bulldog tractor but also about the troubles to get that thing going, especially in winter. I had no idea what machine they were talking about until years later I saw some during a procession of old farm tractors and indeed they were special. The Lanz Bulldog is a type of tractor developed by the German manufacturer Lanz. The tractor was designed by German engineer Fritz Huber and had a horizontal single-cylinder two-stroke hot-bulb diesel engine. Because of this single cylinder, the tractor had a characteristic sound, a staccato "boom-boom" sound. This machine was able to blow beautiful pancakes. It was built by Heinrich Lanz from Mannheim. In 1950 a partnership with John Deere was established. In 1958, the company was taken over by John Deere. Other brands also installed this engine with moderate success. Image size: 260 x 360 mm
