Hi Luftflotte,
Great pics! I don't have a model number for that one. On the Deutz Tractor website http://www.deutz-traktoren.de/ it's just called the Wasserdeutz Luftwaffentraktor.

Searching around it is sometimes labeled as a F2M315 but I have my doubts. WL-2799 is originally from ebay and appears on autogallery but without more information. Maybe it can be answered on the Deutz forum.

Those sources are incorrect. This is the F2M 315 at least according to Deutz (who should know). As you can see it is a different vehicle. RE: autogallery, perhaps someone could translate the Russian for us Deutz шоссейный трактор для работы с прицепом или на аэродроме.

It is most likely a Deutz F 3 M 317. Here are some pictures that were labelled as such.

I want to change my answer! The front suspension on this 1938 F2M315 matches the mystery tractor. As far as I can tell, F 3 models have the tie-rod forward of front of the suspension. Now I have also found a dual tire F 2 model!
Deutz шоссейный трактор для работы с прицепом или на аэродроме.
I forgot to mention, this basically says a road tractor with trailer for use on an airfield. Perhaps this was ordered specifically for use as an airfield tug. The dual tires would offer better traction and stability on soft terrain.

Good day, friends! If interested, here's a video of the tractor Famo Rubezahl, which we restored to working condition. The engine can work on gasoline and diesel fuel, the video just shows the starting handle on gasoline (using the turning off compression - is 8.5 liters engine capacity!), then transfer to a diesel.

That is an impressive tractor! Where did you find this machine?

I have become way too interested in Deutz tractors now. :D I have even found a 1938 advertisment for the F 3 M showing the optional canopy.

Very impressive video, Tankdriver 1! It can crawl faster than I thought. Is this album also of your tractor project? http://svsm.org/gallery/r%FCbezahl/P1290955. Great work, thanks for sharing.
Cheers,

Thank you! The tractor bought by my friend a few years ago in England.

Thank you! Yes, its the same tractor. I think, it is the only one preserved. No?

Impossible to tell, maybe it is! You never know what is hiding in an old barn. :D
