Engine in agriculture

The Engines in Agriculture collection is comprised of a variety of traction engines, tractors, stationary engines and associated devices. The oldest tractor on display was manufactured in 1920, whereas the newest dates from 1977. Part of the collection encompasses a presentation of working machinery – including a stationary petrol engine, which operates as a power unit and drives other machinery by way of a belt drive. During the latter part of the 19th century and the early 20th century, larger agricultural machinery was powered by mobile steam engines – traction engines, the oldest of which in the possession of the TMS was manufactured in 1903 and is still operational.
