Farmer turns a Volkswagen Polo into a fully functional tractor

This is madness!

As someone who lives in North Yorkshire, I see a lot of tractors on a daily basis. These could range from a John Deere to a Massey Ferguson. However, never before have I seen something as 'innovative' as this one.

This farmer has taken the slogan 'Das Auto' a little too far and have turned their Volkswagen Polo into a fully fledged tractor. As you can see, he has fitted huge tractor tyres at the rear, a tractor style exhaust and a rather impressive looking rear trailer hook. As they speak, I have picked up that they are most likely German farmers, so of course they have chosen ze most reliable auto in der Welt.

The rest of the video shows the Polo tractor pulling a huge trailer round the farm taking on tasks which a normal tractor would do. Does this mean farmers will be replacing expensive tractors with little plucky Volkswagens?

What do you make of this?

  • RWD? Otherwise it’s not going to be a “functional” tractor.

  • Firstly: I can't even imagine my Vento (kind of a Polo) becoming a subject to this so thanks, I hate it! 😂

    Secondly, aren't tractors cheaper than Polos?

    Now, if you would excuse me, I've got a car in my driveway to transform.

    • I’m afraid a tractor is very expensive. Atleast jt is here in the UK. Unless you consider £100k cheap!

    • Damn I never realized how costly tractors could get but the minial tasks this Polo could perform would be more easily fulfilled by a tractor costing less than a new Polo. Btw most tractors we have around here are the cheaper ones you can get...

  • It’s been done before many years ago. With a old ford cortina. Looks fantastic to drive around in. When he got cleaver pulling a trailer down road. Many many roll overs found he lost his roof. Coved in a lot of 💩 poo.
