I have seen pictures of them without the cigar box, but I prefer them with it. Its quite a distinctive look

I would have said cigarette tin but the gent in this photo looks more like a cigar man to me


Looks like more of a pipe guy to me.

Looks like it would hold a days worth of cigars and a bottle of whiskey to drink with them. Might not get much work done though.

I Don't know, but I don't think it's a tool box. They'd all fall out when you opened it.

Cigars? maybe, but a bit too big for that.

I think it might be a storage cannister, for a Schnapps bottle, which of course, is for
medicinal purposes.

I believe the standard Gutbrods had a tool roll which fastened to the back of the seat, as the Elf has no seat back maybe the whole tool roll fit in the cigar tin ??

There is a plate behind the seat that the rear lights etc are on, what i should have said is no back rest. I should also say that i'm no expert and could be wrong (the wife of course says i'm always wrong)

Or did I miss something?

Wow! That's 4,049lbs! Evidently the 360Kg is the tractor's weight, which is 794lbs.

I'd say that would have to be pull capability. Can't imagine loading up 2 tons anywhere on the ELF.
