Bungartz F70 (from 1939) or K6. 6 hp Siemens/Bungartz engine, 2 stroke petrol, 1500 rpm, built from 1937-ca. 1942. Working width is 70 cm. Bungartz made some changes to the original Siemens K5, like steering clutches on both wheel axles for easier steering, operated from the handle bars, a support handle on top of the engine and a support to facilitate cleaning of the tiller.

The carburettor was a SUM K 12/23. The early machines still had the Siemens-style clutch handle, on the K6 it was operated by a Bowden cable. And the K6 had an aluminium gearbox and cooler stand, instead of the cast iron on the older models.

This Bungartz machine is shown in a Belgian leaflet and is assigned Bungartz B4-40. The location of the fuel tank is different from the normal L3 model. It makes one think of the SIMAR C2 tiller which was imported to Germany by Siemens, when they did not make such small tillers theirselves.

This seems to be an early Bungartz L3. The first 125 machines, numbers 2001 till 2125, had the fuel tank fitted on the steering handle.

Bungartz L3, 4.5 hp DKW EL201 petrol engine, 2 stroke, 3000 rpm. Working width is 40 cm. From the 126th machine (number 2126), the fuel tank was fitted above the engine.
2000 Bungartz L3 were made, only a few are known to have survived today.
