During the "Kohlmarkt," an event that yearly accompanies the harvest of the cabbage in our area, the "Old Tractor Friends of the Westcoast" exposed antique tractors like this "Lanz Bulldog."

These machines are in extremly good condition, lovely rebuild and are a kind of art for themselves. "Lanz Bulldog" is a well known type in Germany, a real workhorse for the farmers. They had special "Tractor Drivers" in the past. Their job was only driving the tractor and keeping the machine in a good working condition.

I asked for a perfomance of this "Lanz Bulldog" and the owner started the engine just for me.

Running through the whole sequence:
  • searching for the lamp (hidden somewhere in the cabine)
  • starting the lamp (pumping petrol and gasifying it)
  • starting the lamp (pumping petrol and gasifying it)
  • preheating the cyclinder with the lamp
  • starting the engine with a manual handle

Great sound (caught with a Zoom H2) .......

When you see how much work it is starting this engine, then you can imagine that it was running the whole day contouosly without a stop.

I think it´s a very special kind of "Performing Art."
