Remarks :

The wooden wheels had iron tyres, because of the lack or raw material caused by the blockade. For driving on smooth or rough ground, the wheels were fitted with shovellike grippers. With the help of a winch on the rear of the vehicle, the unhooked gun trailer could be towed up grades of as much as 45. During the First World War 1070 of these tractors were manufactured and 855 were delivered to the German Army before the end of the war.
