In the 'German Tanks' section, topic 'Loading Beute'there was some mentioning of German use of Traction Engines. I found this website, dealing with the Kemna EM (Einheitsmaschine). Thought it might interest you.

Very interesting thanks a lot for posting this

The engine in the photo of the beute recovery process could perhaps be a Kemna - this would explain both the Fowler like similarities and the differences (such as the cylinders). However the Kemna in the article is a road machine and I still wonder why a ploughing machine was being used to recover tanks, unless it was an impressed machine.

this post was originally made by the khemna restorers maybe it should be put in this section although it also includes Big Guns.........
