Here are some pictures my father and I took there:
Some machinery was delivered by truckloads (this is a collection of IRUS from southern
.....and others arrived on their own power (an IRUS with an IRUS mower on the trailer,
and a Holder with sprayer tank.
In the morning there were not so many visitors.....
.....but in the afternoon the place was quite crowded!
The show organisators (being Rainer Dinslage and Peter Eschweiler, the founders of EINS),
had made interesting information boards about their machinery.
I myself brought three Bungartz tractors to the show (more detailed pictures on my
Bungartz Museum page). Also shown here is an information board with
my Bungartz Service enamel sign, and several broken parts from machines I repaired, to show
the visitors what happens if you do not lubricate a Bungartz!
My machinery from the back side, and yes that is me! The large black thing appears to be
some sort of press, having been powered by a flat belt.
Who does not like a ride with a walk behind tractor? This is an Agria model 2800 with 10 hp
Hatz four stroke diesel engine.
Bungartz L5DH13 from ca. 1963, with a 13 hp Hatz four stroke diesel engine.
By the way, these are my van and trailer in the back. My father and I had one tractor on the trailer and two inside the van;
in the night the two were driven out, beds spread, and we slept quite well.
Georg Mosbacher, from way south in Germany, shows that his BMW powered Bungartz F6 really
starts at first attempt. He has tried to sell it for some time now (I have this model already),
but most interested people told him that the BMW engine DEFINITELY could not be original!
This Bungartz L5 with 14 hp Stihl diesel engine did start OK (however I had to start it for
the owner). This is a two stroke diesel engine which needs a choke to start, and has one
outlet overhead valve. Some blue smoke is normal, as is has a comsumption lubrication
system, but this one slightly exaggerates!
Holder EDII with 10 hp Sachs two stroke water cooled diesel engine, and sprayer.
Rainer Dinslage showed this opened IRUS U300. It is interesting to turn the flywheel and
see how the gears etc. work.
There was some land available for demonstrations. This is me showing how my Bungartz L5
from 1966 with 13 hp Hatz diesel engine works. I am glad we do not have as many stones
in the soil at home!
Me again, now showing my Bungartz FK with 7 hp Berning diesel engine from 1960. It has a
spader, a slowly rotating cultivator used to loosen the soil deeply. It did not work so
well as this was the first time I tried it, and I had not yet had time to find the proper
Fortunately there was some water on the grounds, so I could also operate my Bungartz FRNK
from 1959, with 7 hp Berning diesel engine and HA-ES irrigation pump. The engine cover has
been removed to ensure enough engine cooling. It drew quite some attention, especially
when starting while people were still around the sprayer!
All the exhibitors I spoke with, said it was a wonderful show, so we sure hope there will
be one again in 1998!
