The 2001 yearly E.I.N.S.-event was organised by Andreas Meyer and Uwe Ziebur on 2 September. Place of aktion was Steinberg, near Bremen in Germany. The weather was not very cooperative: half way the morning it started raining. But the showed machines were put to work anyway: the organisers had a nice acre available for ploughing, cultivating, etc.
Uwe Ziebur, one of the organisers, prepares to take his Monax tractor for a ride to the field. The Monax was made by AWK (Guss- und Armaturwerk) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. It is powered by a 10 hp Sachs water cooled, two stroke diesel engine.
A wide range of walk behind tractors was shown, such as Holder, Agria, IRUS, Hako and Gutbrod.
This is a Gutbrod, powered by a 8 hp Rotax engine.
Another Monax, this one with a cultivator. The Monax was designed so that the driver could use the seat for every job he had to perform with the tractor.
An array of larger tractors: Holder, Schmiedag (Hansa) and Monax.
Uwe Ziebur demonstrates that his Monax is still fully usable. The tractor had absolutely no trouble pulling a nice furrow in the light soil, and Uwe could stay on the seat.
The Holder E10 (with 10 hp Sachs diesel engine) and the Gutbrod were put to work.
Two Holders E6 were shown with a wide array of available attachments, like sickle bar mower, circular mower, rotating broom, trailer and rotary cultivator.
Andreas Meyer, the other organiser, had aquired a sowing machine shortly before the show, and coupled it to his Holder ED II.
Of course, the sowing machine should prove what it was worth. It turned out that the coupling was not perfect, maybe next year the operation can be showed like it should be. Nevertheless an impressive and oiginal view!
