Vintage Siku Prototypes?


Recommended Posts

I've just bought some discontinued Siku vintage farm models and am trying t olocate the prototypes for each. Having looke on this forum, I've not come up with anything, so thought I'd ask!

The models are a potato digger with a circular basket, a mechanical hay rake with 6 small forks, a seed drill and a dump rake. Haven't found much online, other than that the potato digger might be a 1930's Grimme model?

Anybody help, please?

I've not got time this weekend to put up my own pics, so here are the details using web pages:

Potato Planter, Dump Rake, Mechanical Hay Fork, Vintage Rake all on this page:


Amazone Manure Spreader, Amazone Fertilizer Spreader on here:


Grimme Potato Digger on this page:


Where I’ve got the make, if anybody can give me details of model or dates, I’ll be very grateful.

if you are lookinig at what machinery is used to create the models of, that will be a difficult thing to do, most are originally horse drawn equipment of which manufacturers are not well documented. i dont have anything anymore of the Siku Farmerclassic series that started in 2002. So dont know if the boxes provided more information then what you found on the farmmodeldatabase..

Nope. the boxes don't give anything away, I'm afraid. I had guessed that most were derived from horsedrawn items, but don't have any info on machinery from that early - something I must obviously rectify!

Perhaps I should work up a harness and get a few horses onto the shelves? ;-)
