Hello All,

 

I bought an ELF 2 weeks ago on EBAY and i want to share this little tractor with you.

 

I already have a Ferguson TED20 an a MF135 so an ELF is an nice addition to the collection.

 

The yellow tractor came from Germany and included in the sale was the left and right plow. (or is it plough :D )

 

Oke, back to the tractor :

I think it is an later type of ELF, 10 hp which is based on the 1050 Gutbrod. Maybe someone can give me an indication of the year of manufacturing. The chassis nr = 031216.

 

I already had a little conversation with John (GAV694), who gave me some good tips but i'm always interested in other information.

 

Kind regards,

Glenn

Very nice...I like the little extension in the fourth pic on the middle rod. I guess it got a little too close to the boys for comfort. :(

Hi Glenn, :welcome:

I think what you have there will be quite rare and a very useful tractor once restored

here are a couple of 1050 pictures which may help you

Welcome to the forum! Good to see another ELF owner come aboard. Might want to put a marker on our member map, think your are our first from Belgium.

Hi Everyone,

 

thank you for the warm welcome !

 

The plan is to first collect the items i think i'm missing and getting it running. For the moment i have the TED under restoration, so the Elf is a side project.

 

I'll do my best to keep you posted on the progress.

 

Kind regards,

Glenn
