The Tractor Shovel is likely the oldest surviving model in the Matchbox lineup. First released in 1976 it still continues in the lineup to this day, more than 35 years later!

There are two different casting variations. The casting wasn't orginally released with a trailer hitch, that was added later. Plus, there was a different variation with a manure fork instead of a bucket that came with the German issued farm playsets
