    Yikes what a behemoth. 6 cylinders indeed, maybe for each wheel. Or a single engine and oil drum sized pistons...

    The size of that tool box might tell you some thing about the maintenance.

    That's just for cherry picker, retrieves tools from box on port side, even larger! Roof over driver doubles as oil drain pan, dare I say?

    Looking at the picture the cylinders and heads seem to be bolted to the block in 2 cylinder units.
    I am having a hard time imagining what this big of a machine was made for, but by the picture dated 1918 I suspect it was for dragging artillery around. I also suspect this is a captured piece of equipment.
    Lanz was a German company, does anybody recognize the uniforms or weapons the soldiers have? The soldier on the right has his shoulder patch and rifle.

    I came across a Video on youtube of cold start after 45 years of Ursus C-45. Did more searching and I almost fell in love with it. I love it how the steering wheel is the start crank too.

    That's a big'O 2 stroke. "cylinder capacity of 10,300 cc" (628 Cu. in.). Wonder what the fuel was?
