Americans can see many familiar names of manufacturers (and some not so familiar) when they look at tractors and stationary gas engines in New Zealand. This page shows some of the engines owned by New Zealand collectors. We appreciate the cooperation of Michael J. Hanrahan, editor of 'Vintage Farming' magazine of New Zealand, who obtained identification; some of these are GEM photos taken in 1984..
