Best Tractor is M4 Tractor.

 

A tune up must be amusing.

Probably asks for -all- the spark plugs.

Just think, if he had a Panther based tractor he could neutral steer at the end of each row.  Well, until the final drive broke.

Considering how downright agricultural looking the German turret traverse mechanisms looked, that may have been their plans...

Please, I bet the Farmers were better technical engineers than the guys who worked in the factories overseeing the projects...

Considering the prewar German tractors I've seen, I can believe it.

Are we talking about German early 30's tanks which they called "traktor" in order to hide them from the Western Allies, or are we talking about actual agricultural machines?

Actual farm implements.  A lot of German farms were still dealing with old hot-tube engines.

I wonder what percentage of German farms even had a tractor.  I would guess they were still primarily dependent on horses.

Well, of the ones that had traction engines were what I was talking about, obviously.

Otherwise, much of their military transport was still horsedrawn, but you know that already.
