the german machine is a neat looking little tiller,
made by Agria Works of Germany in the 60's, after the war (WW2) we had smashed germany into submission, a gear manufacturer Agria Works was asked to build a compact tiller/tractor, using the only thing gemany had left for small engines, they used Quickly 3 speed moped engines (2-smoke) and the Agria Agrette was born,

The 2nd tiller to follow the agriette (model 2000) was the model 2100 Milling machine for inter-row cultivation and market (truck) gardeners, using the same Quickly moped engine and tranny with a single drive wheel, even the Quickly moped fuel tank and handle bars were used on both machines,
