Porsche-Diesel Junior S
The Porsche-Diesel Junior S was developed as a special vineyard tractor for soil preparation and vine maintenance with different gadgets available for fitment to the 3-point struts with lifting hydraulics. The hydraulic power lift was designed for a working capacity of 300kg. Also the Junior had a reversible transmission PTO with standard number of revolutions and rotational speed. At high performance speeds the powerful 14hp 1-cylinder engine had a low consumption. Despite its narrow design the tractor was very stable in steep positions, because its centre of gravity was relatively low. The track was adjustable from 66cm to 116cm. To prevent any damage of the grapevines, special care has been taken with the shape of the covers. The Porsche-Diesel Junior vineyard tractor had a very appealing design and is very popular with collectors.
