Great pictures Jim! I wish I understood Polish!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I'd love to look some of those over in person.

I rented my rental house next door to a 80 year old Polish woman who left Poland in 1972 while it was behind the Iron Curtain. I have contacted her family and she sees them with MSN Messenger on my computer. Her greatgrand son and I made the hookup. He sent me the tractor pictures. They sure are odd looking.

Polish Tractors

Postby Ramon » Mon Jun 21, 2004 2:06 pm

Jim,
My wife is Polish and I go there every year. I always I have eye out for the old Ursus tractors and the thought of there actually being an existing collection is just too awesome to comprehend. Does your neighbor's son happen to know just where those tractors are located? Someday I hope to retire in Poland and if I do, I already told my wife I am bring my big red Farmall 100 with me (can't say that excited her but it sure makes me happy).
Thanks
Ramon

The URSUS and Lanz tractors are quite common all over Europe.
I have seen many in my travels. Parts are also obtainable.
