Wall Decor - Eicher Mammut Tractor - Retro Metal Sign
Decorative tin sign with retro look. A piece of history compact represented with the charm of days gone by. The highlights are artfully elaborated reliefs created through embossing and the motive gets a more plastic look due to an arching of the whole plate.
In the small village, Forstern near Munich, in Bavaria, Germany, the first Eicher tractor was made, in the 1930s, by Joseph and Albert Eicher. It was the beginning of considerable development of Eicher's Forstern and Dingolfing factories. These pioneers made several tests and carried out a patient work of clarification. The first evolution was marked by the construction of an automatic mower and a three-wheeled tractor. The brothers Joseph and Albert Eicher were born and grew up in an agricultural part of Germany. Their personal taste for agriculture favored the development of ideas which led to the manufacturing of machines and modern devices. In 1949, their manufacture of the first farm tractor with an engine with air cooling allowed Eicher to rank among the most important manufacturers of tractors.
