Tractors

 Kibbutz Ein Shemer hosts one of the most amazing early and completely restored collection of tractors at the "Michael Hanger". What makes this collection so unique is the amount of detailed work invested by our team to restore the tractors back to their original condition sometimes as early as 1875!

Come visit history in the making at Kibbutz Ein Shemer.

Please confirm the business hours for both museum and tractor hanger by phone +972-4-637-4237 or by email rishonim@ein-shemer.org.il.

 

"Motorized plow "Stock"
(Germany, 1910)

Imported to Israel in 1912. The motorized plow, which was called The Mechanical Mule, was one stage in the transition from horse-drawn plowing to tractor plowing.

A standard horse-drawn tractor is attached at the rear. Instead of the horses, the plow is towed by puller wheels powered by a gasoline engine. From the premises of Nira and Yehuda Lerner, Gedera.

 

Stock type tractor restoration from 1917

Developed in 1910 by a German engineer named Robert Stock in his tractor factory. This tractor was equipped with gasoline engine with two cylinders gearbox.

In 1915, two tractors were brought to Israel by German Templars, who established a farm near Beit Shean. We received the tractor in very poor shape, motor gear was destroyed and the body of the tractor was rusted.

After nearly two years of detailed restoration this tractor is now displayed in our hanger in perfect working order. There are only two tractors like that in the world, the second is in a museum in France.
