TAS Country : March 3rd 2011
Friday, March 4, 2011 Tasmanian Country 17 Tractor Tragic power blooms late IN GEAR: The Deutz F3M317 transmission system. NEWCOMER: The McCormick Deering WD40 diesel tractor arrived on the scene in 1937. direction. Basic stuff, but this would be the first of many little HL-12 tractors built by Lanz and soon gave rise to more powerful machines. Deutz had also resorted to the simple route of a stationary diesel engine on a driven chassis for their first tractor in 1926 known as the MTH-222 which had a two-forward speed transmission fitted. This tractor was successful enough to promote larger horsepower single and twin cylinder machines called the MTZ models that were successful enough to be built through until 1936. The big difference between the Lanz and Deutz machines at this time (apart from the engine designs) was that Lanz had gone the modern route with frameless construction while Deutz still favoured bolting a stationary-type engine to a separate chassis. By 1933, Deutz was ready to release a thoroughly modern diesel tractor onto the market that embodied frameless construction, a three-speed transmission and a modern engine in the form of a 28-horsepower vertical two-cylinder hand-crank diesel. Known as the F2M-315, this tractor used either glow plugs or ignition papers in the head for heating, was cranked up to speed on the starting handle at which time a decompression lever that protruded through the grille shell was tripped. This almost always promoted a quick easy start and a far cry from the hassles experienced with the early Benz machines.
