Collection Of German-Built Lanz Tractors
My uncle Alvin Freier has one of the largest collections of German-built Lanz tractors in North America. He began farming with them in the 1950's when he farmed with his brother and father. They were always impressed with the fuel efficiency of the tractors. Alvin says the 50 hp Lanz Bulldog would only consume a gallon of diesel fuel per hour. The one-cylinder tractor ran at a top 850 rpm's.
  Alvin "retired" his Lanz tractors in the later 1980's but keeps them painted and in good running shape. He also started picking up more of them. The photo shows me driving one of his Lanz tractors at a Canada Day Parade last summer in Binscarth, Manitoba. Alvin's riding on the fender.
