Fendt Dieselross F20G – Tractor – 1/18 Scale Shuco
From 1928, the Fendt company was still busy producing laboriously hand-built grass mowers. Nevertheless, in 1930 they presented the first Fendt tractor, the Fendt Dieselross F9. The name Dieselross related to the workhorses still widely used at the time in farming but bit-by-bit being displaced by diesel-powered tractors. The Fendt Dieselross F20G on which our Schuco model to a scale of 1:18 is based was Fendt‘s mid-range model from 1951. Over 6,300 were built up to 1957 and had an upright, single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine with a displacement of 1.5 litres, delivering 20 hp through an 8-speed gearbox to the rear axle. This permitted speeds from 0.8 to 20 km/h (0.5 – 12.5 mph).
