The Syn Trac multi-purpose tractor combines the qualities of agility, power and control in one highly automated unit.
Not only did the development of the revolutionary mid-engined construction represent a massive challenge for the engineers but also for the designers. Both the tall proportions and the visual integration of the cab required some special panel graphic treatment.
Clearly visible on first prototype are the signature features: The four wheel steering, the fully glazed 360° vision cab and the automatic front docking unit.
At the rear of the vehicle is an identical automatic docking unit. The above image shows the Syn Trac being manoeuvred towards a trailer during the docking operation.
At the demopark in Eisenach in 2019, where the Syn Trac was awarded a gold medal.
In the same year it was also nominated for a Design Staatspreis in Vienna.

Last but not in addition to the brilliant team of engineers at Syn Trac I want to add some additional key players essential in realising this project (all from Austria): Peter Eher-Andersen at blue-design in Zell am See: Kerbl Modellbau GmbH in Styer: Manfred Fally and the rest of the team at Walter Mauser GmbH in Breitenau.
