1330 kg, 2 cylinders, 2 HP and a maximum speed of 15 km/h - this is some basic information about our newly acquired "RS 08"!
Yesterday, we made our way to Kassel to have a closer look at Stefan's tractor "Maulwurf" ("Mole"). How did that happen?
A few days ago, the "Trödeltrupp" ("Rummage squad") of the TV channel RTL II called us and made us the offer to bargain for the tractor - in case we still need it for our collection. Of course, we didn't have to be told twice! Into the car and off to Hesse.
In front of a live camera we made a real job of it with a handshake.
The tractor has been cherished and well cared for over the years. It definitely doesn't look like it is 60 years old already.
Seller and customer were satisfied and for a small obulus Stefan agreed to clean the tractor from the dust of the garage and attached a red ribbon :)
This „Der Trödeltrupp" episode will be on TV in a few months. During prime time at 8.15pm, extended length.
We are excited already and would like to thank the team of RTL II!
@Stefan: your tractor is in safe keeping and we are looking forward to meeting you at the museum soon!
