Press launch of Yoke110 in september 1987. The Yoke allowed a small tractor to pull a heavy load by automatically taking up the traction deficit. A great idea and the Yoke performed perfectly, but never made it to production due to company politics.( someone got greedy- the team was split and the project wrecked!)

Diesel tractor prototype but because of the high price of the engine the diesel model idea was dropped

in the late 40s Ernst Kunz sold his company to someone else but sadly the company went bankrupt and both men where effected. In later years Ernst Kunz sold tractors for other manufactures until he retired
