Farm Tractor with Functional Steering, Clockwork Spring and Selectable Gears.
In 1869, Johann Georg Fahr bought the Neumühle in Gottmadingen and founded his agricultural machinery factory. It was only almost 70 years later, in 1938, that it produced its first tractor, the Fahr F 22, which met with some success. Because of its large steering angle and individual wheel brakes, it was possible to turn the tractor on a dime. It has been particularly popular with customers who used several different types of harvesters, since they were able to operate all equipment with it, without having it refitted.
This model – built between 1938 and 1941, during which time about 450 Fahr F 22 left the production halls in Gottmadingen – was fitted with the 22 hp Deutz engine and painted in the bright red typically used for Fahr agricultural machinery. We offer this Fahr F 22 as a faithful replica of the original; its clockwork spring mechanism has three selectable forward gears and one reverse, with functional steering and handbrake. This model – as well as the matching tipping trailer and potato sling – is made by Kovap in Nový Hrádek, Czech Republic.
Detailed and carefully crafted. Tin toys from Europe
We do not want to tire of emphasizing how vanishingly small and soon probably completely disappeared the share of mechanical tin toys from European production. Since the relocation of almost all tin toy manufacturing to the Far East, the manufacturers remaining in this country (as in the rest of Europe) are often left to fend for themselves. We have collected some of their products: historical car or tractor models and corresponding trailers or a cable car. For the tractors, the company Kovap in Nový Hrádek in the Czech Republic has partly reactivated old tools and is reassembling steel rims instead of plastic ones for us. All vehicles and trailers are kept in 1:25 scale, so they fit model railroads of 1:22.5 scale. Some classics produced for decades, such as the calculation monkey Consul, have virtually disappeared - we have only found a manufacturer in India, which manufactures it.
Not suitable for children under 3 years. Risk of suffocation due to small parts that can be swallowed.
