This Lanz Ackerluft-Bulldog was an early variant of the type HR8 D9506 with a 38 HP engine. The vehicle was pneumatic-tyred and so could be used on good roads, too.

The only difference between the Lanz type HR8 D9539 Eil-Bulldog and the type D 9538 was the totally closed driver’s cab. An additional warm-air heating was available for such driver’s cabs. This was more comfortable for service during winter. (Photo: German federal archive via Wikimedia Commons; License: Creative Commons BY-SA-3.0-gb)
