From a Roving Correspondent: Random Tractors of Europe

1701tractor

“Spotted while I was waiting for the car-wash today. No fuel gauge on this model - the driver opened up the engine cover climbed up with the fuel pipe and peered inside the tank, watching until it was full.”

Thanks Nick, I’m sure Alan will provide a full analysis…

Looks like Dieselross two. Type 139. From Fendt obviously. Looks in beautiful condition but they were expensive when built in or around 1963.
The front of the old Fendts are very similar. You really need a side shot to see the hood design to properly ID it. But it's definitely 2 wheel drive.

Plenty of these vintage tractors to be seen in Franconia - especially at the weekend, when the so-called 'Hobby-Bauers' (part-time farmers) hit the roads. Will look for a side view next time...
