special deutz
Does anyone know if this tractor was built in serie
production? I remember an old Siku model of a Deutz Agroxtra
which had the same colours and headlights...

Re: special deutz
This was a advertising from Deutz, maybe 20 jears ago; It
should be a funtrac or a bugy. You should go to the disco
with this vehicle. I don´t know, was it a advertising gag or
was it a marketing idea!

The mercy of my age grant me this inspect!

Re: special deutz
Hi Bart,

Correct: Siku had the same model (1:32) some years ago.

In my opinion, the 1:1 Deutz FunTrac is based on the
AgroXtra 3.57 (?). It is delivered without e.g. a 3-point
linkage. Instead of the 3-point linkage, a large box is
mounted behind the cab.
This Deutz has not been produced for a long period.
I guess its production has started somewhere in the 90's
(not quite 20 years ago...).

Re: special deutz
If i had it, Id paint hippie daisies onto it,
or spray paint it another coulour.
It could be a 'summer of love' tractor I suppose. I prefer
big chunky tractors though.

Re: special deutz
English text (Deutscher Text siehe unten!)

First things first: I don't know how someone can paint a
tractor in such an awful color and if someone really likes
it in that color... - well, judge for yourself (it's not a
very manly colour, is it???)! ;-)

But the pic above and the fact that I've seen one here in my
area tell me that there must have been people who bought
that "toy" and I think it wasn't very cheap at all! I wonder
how much it was...

The FunTrac has a 3-cylinder air cooled engine with 60 HP,
the same as the "normal" AgroXtra 3.75 model (You got it,
Joost!). As said before it has no 3pt.-hitch, there only is
a trailer coupling and that box where you can put all kind
of stuff into like picnic- and shopping bags etc. In the cab
there is a bench for two and a radio with cassette-deck. As
they say it's "a comfortable cabin for the real tractor
feeling".

Deutz-Fahr said in their brochure the FunTrac is "The first
tractor for fun in the city and in the country." It was made
for hauling caravans and boat-trailers, driving to the
shopping-centre, disco, golf-club or just for having fun
with it. You can ride it at a max. speed of 40 km/h and
Deutz-Fahr even promoted how easy it is to park between two
cars due to the small turning circle. :-)

The brochure I have was printed in May 1992. It has one side
of german text, 3 pictures and the front cover. If someone
wants it, I can post the pics or the whole brochure.

By the way: As far as I remenber Mercedes-Benz produced a
fun-version of their UNIMOG, called FunMOG around the same
time.



Deutscher Text

Vorneweg: Ich weiss nicht, wie jemand auf die Idee kommen
kann, einen Traktor in so einer fuerchterlichen Farbe zu
vermarkten! Wenn das wirklich jemandem gefallen sollte, ...
- nun, urteilt selbst! (Sehr maennlich ist die Farbe nun
wirklich nicht!) ;-)

Das Foto oben und die Tatsache, dass ich hier bei mir in der
Gegend auch schon mal einen hab rumflitzen sehen sagt mir,
dass dieses "Spielzeug" aber wohl doch Kaeufer gefunden
haben muss, und das bestimmt nicht zu einem all zu niedrigen
Preis! Wuerde mich echt mal interessieren, was das Teil
gekostet hat!

Der FunTrac hat einen luftgekuehlten 3-Zylinder Motor mit 60
PS, der selbe wie im AgroXtra 3.75 (Treffer, Joost!). Wie
Joost schon sagte, hat der FunTrac keine
Dreipunktaufhaengung, nur eine Anhaengerkupplung und eine
Art Kofferraum, in dem man Dinge wie Picknickkorb und
Einkaufstaschen verstauen kann. In der Kabine findet man
eine Zweiersitzbank und ein serienmaessiges
Stereo-Cassettenradio. Deutz-Fahr nennt das "eine
komfortable Kabine fuer das richtige Traktor-Feeling".

In ihrem Prospekt sagen sie, der FunTrac sei "Der erste
Traktor fuer Spass in Stadt und Land." Gedacht ist er als
Zugmaschine fuer Wohnwagen und Bootsanhaenger, fuer die
Fahrt zum Einkaufen, zur Disco, zum Golf-Club oder einfach
nur, um Spass damit zu haben. Die Hoechstgeschwindigkeit
liegt bei "flotten 40 km/h" und Deutz-Fahr warb sogar damit,
wie einfach es sei, mit dem FunTrac dank seines geringen
Wendekreises einzuparken! :-)

Mein Prospekt ist von Mai 1992, er hat eine Seite deutschen
Text, drei Bilder und das Frontcover. Wenn Interesse
besteht, kann ich die Bilder oder den Prospekt gerne
einscannen und posten.

Uebrigens: Wenn ich mich recht erinnere, brachte
Mercedes-Benz zu etwa der selben Zeit eine Fun-Variante des
UNIMOG her

Re: special deutz
It was pretty hard to concentrate on the traffic as I saw
the FunTrac... it was just too horrible and it really hurt
my eyes... :-)

I'm very busy today but the pics will come by tomorrow.

it really is a very vile machine.
I like the way they tried to make it look 'cool' in the
brochure. What a job for the photographer.He probably went
blind too....

Re: special deutz
Well it's a horrible colour, it has grassland tyres, no
hydraulic lift and a stupid box on the back for doing the
shopping with. Who actually bought one of these? I doubt
that many of these were sold. Whoever designed it should
have got the sack!!
