Until the mid-1930s, agricultural tractors were only to be found on larger farms. This circumstance changed significantly when the
Deutz company, based in the Cologne suburb of Deutz, introduced the Deutz F1 M414. The Deutz, commonly known as the “farmer’s
tractor”, thus played a major role in the motorisation of small and medium-sized farm businesses. At the same time, it increasingly
took over from horses. With an initial purchase price of only 2,300 Reichsmarks, the F1 M414 was considered very cheap. It’s
water-cooled Deutz 11 HP diesel engine, type F1M414, lent its name to the type designation at the same time. Its transmission had 3
forward gears and one reverse gear. In addition a belt pulley, a PTO shaft, a mower drive and pneumatic tyres were among its features.
The Deutz was very popular with farmers, as the sales figures also reflect. Up until 1942, approx. 10,000 units had been sold, making
it the most successful German tractor before World War II. After the war, production resumed in the almost completely destroyed Deutz
factory. In the beginning, tractors were assembled simply out of spare parts that had survived the war. Later, the F1M414 received a
fourth forward gear, a foot brake and a foot throttle. After 1950, its power output increased from 11 to 12 HP. From 1945 up until
1951, approx. 9,000 units were produced, meaning that 19,000 Deutz F1 M414 units were built altogether
