There’re some LANZ Tractor Service Repair Manuals PDF above the page.

I’m sure the name of this German tractor doesn’t mean much to you; many are hearing it for the first time.

Although, even today in Europe, small wheeled tractors popularly called “bulldogs” out of habit.

But the Lanz Bulldog D9506 is a unique tractor that has survived several eras at once.

The very first versions of this tractor appeared in 1921, and already at that time its design called obsolete. It’s all about the engine.

A single-piston 10-liter (this is not a typo, it’s all true) engine with glow ignition under ideal conditions started in about 15 minutes. In frosty, damp weather it was good if it started in an hour.

The huge cast iron piston moved horizontally and created strong vibrations when the engine was running.

The smoke from the chimney was such that steam locomotives were jealous, and modern ecologists paralyzed en masse at the sight of it. No environmental standards invented there.

This is the so-called “oil motor”, at that time still used in various stationary installations, such as water pumps, generators and drives of various factory equipment, but in transport it was rare.

Water-cooled engine, radiators in the form of separate sections. The engine power varied from 15 to 55 horsepower, it is low-speed, 500-650 rpm.

The gearbox was three-speed with a range, with a total of 6 forward gears and two reverse gears. Speed range from 3. 5 to 16. 5 km/h.

By the mid-1930s, it seemed that the days of this archaic machine numbered, but the beginning of a new madness, which again entailed an acute shortage of fuel, literally gave the tractor a second life.

Now also in the form of a high-speed version – a tractor for towing various trailers and weapons.

After Second World War

After World War II, the production of the Bulldog did not stop; the issue of omnivorous transport was relevant in Germany and in Europe as a whole, so localized assembly of the ancient archaic tractor began in some countries.

In Belgium, Spain, France, Poland they collected under different names, moreover, even in Australia for some time this device produced under the local name KL Bulldog.

The production of the legendary “Bulldog” completed only in 1959 with a total circulation of more than 200 thousand copies.

Around the same time, Lanz bought by American agricultural equipment manufacturer John Deere, which had used the brand for some time.
