Nowhere did tractors have such beautiful names as in the GDR: Hedgehog, Bolder Witch or, well, Activist. This is a track-laying tractor KS 07/62 "Ruebezahl", named after the burly mountain spirit of the Sudeten mountains. It was built from 1952-1957 in the nationally-owned tractor factory Brandenburg based on a pre-war model. "Ruebezahl" had a proud appearance in 1952 when it was allowed to rumble along during a May demonstration. But the tractor was primarily used for hard work in agriculture, for example for plowing. The engine was a 4-cylinder diesel engine with only 60 HP. Our model is no toy but fully functional, except for the drive. Maybe it was built in the apprentice workshop of the company. When the Brandenburg City Museum presented the local industrial history for the first time in a permanent exhibition in 1974, it also became a power show of socialist development since the end of the war. Naturally. "Ruebezahl" had to be part of that. Our model had the exact manageable format and provided an agrarian green touch of color.
