Wel its always good to help a friend from your own country.

Lanz-Frauwenbulldog 4506 (the Woman Lanz)
Was buld in WWII by the lanz company.
Hitler (the scary man) had orderd that there must be somkimd of tractor buld for the German Farmer on huge scale.
Like the VW beetle was for the people of Germany.
The tractor was design under the Nazi regime and reasembled by the German woman because most men where at war.
Some people told me that it was buld for the German Woman but never found evidence about that ,so it must have been buld by the German woman.
Hiltler woult have had 200 til 300 thousend units of it but it became until 276 units because chortly in the production the Lanz factory/plant was bombed by the allied forces.

Its not a tractor that you coult show on every show but is a museum piece.
I have some documents that the old Dutch National farm museum Wageningen have done a study about this tractor many years ago when it was open in that time, and they find out that the woman Lanz 4506 never official have been imported in Holland.
So it must have been left by the German Army because its always have been a Dutch tractor.
And found very close where our farm is 30 years ago.
This is serial 265 so one of the last because they went to 276

Wel this is a steel wheeled chanel but it stays a super raare tractor because not many of them have survived world tractor history.

Hope you have somthing about this information for your Lanz argive.

Keep in touch,
Chris

If you look at the second picture, one of the photos shows a lathe with "-nnati" on the headstock. Could that be a Cincinnati lathe in a German factory?

Eric,
Thanks for the notice,
Wel it coult be an American lathe in to a German Factory.
I thing you are right.


Farmersbase i hope you are not mind that i take a little bit your thread over with posting Lanz items.
Not so many people talk about Lanz overhere so lets bring a coople of famous Lanz models in.

Ok here is the first one.

The Lanz HL ore Hp (the Chain Bulldog) Jantje

A very famous Bulldog and buld between 1921-1926.
Here in Holland and Belgium we give the Chain Bulldog a nick name Jantje.
Now some vieuwers wil ask there self what is a Jantje.
Jan(tje) is the name of of the regulair little Dutch boy.
And it is a little tractor so that’s why we called itJantje.
They called it the Chain Bulldog because there are roller chain’s going from the crank to the gear as you can see close to the rearwheel.
It was a very populair tractor in the 20’s and made between 12and 15 hp.
Original old ones are very expensive
There are also some new ones on the market because they made some of these new in Poland.
But you can always see the difference.

Here are some more.

thirst picture The Feldmotor and Felddank Lanzen.
Most wanted Lanzen in the world.

Second and thirth some pictures of the inside of the Lanz factory.

And last picture an Eil-Bulldog.
You have the chort and the long Eil-bulldogs.
You can see the difference on the side door.
If its having a side door then its a long version.

Ok so far this item

Thanks for the link, I never realized that Lanz produced such a wide variety of machines. It would be interesting to read a history of the company from one of the engineers point of view.

That is in fact a Cincinnati horizontal mill...I remember one like it in the high school machine shop. (In Colorado, not Germany-)

Hi Prins

Thanks for the photo of the Lanz - did you buy this tractor?

Do you know anything about a McLaren steam ploughing engine in Angola or Namibia?

Best wishes

David
