Occasional Pyrenean Tractors (4)

Motivated by the enthusiastic response to my last 'tractor' posting, I looked around and saw this one.  If it's any help to Alan R, the side plate said '0301'.  The end plate said 'Amouroux Freres Toulouse', but I guess you already knew that.

I would imagine it's their 1HP model,  but I'll let you be the judge.

Sent from our GR10 trip - outside l'escalette B&B in Auzat, with a fluffy towel in one hand and a beer in the other

From the design i would say this was post 1 horse power. Probably pulled by a steam traction engine.
Its a great piece of kit. Not sure, well i should say i don’t know the year it was made. Easy though, is built by The Amouroux brothers, and Toulouse gives the country of origin away. (Never heard of them).
Looking at the www. i’d say about 1908’ish.

Thanks Martin. Great picture, far more interesting than Plants. IMO of course.
