Onboard workshop together with a hotspot

LuTS, our partner from Eisleben with its own AMAZONE mobile service

Tobias Barthels

As an agricultural machinery dealer, commercial vehicle workshop and trailer manufacturer, LuTS GmbH has been a partner of ours for many years – first of all of Bodenbearbeitungsgeräte Leipzig GmbH & Co. KG (BBG) and now of AMAZONE. The company has a long history which goes back to 1949 as a Machine Rental Station (MAS). It then became a state-owned enterprise VEB Kreisbetrieb für Landtechnik Eisleben (KfL Volkstedt) in 1964. In 1990 the Treuhand (Trust Agency) approved the continuation of the company with the name Land & TechnikService GmbH (LuTS) under the management of Manfred Pollin, the existing managing director. Together with Ullrich Leuteritz, he bought the company from the trust company in 1994. The AMAZONE products were in use directly after the reunification of Germany, whereas the BBG implements were in use before.


Tobias Barthel is a long-serving employee of LuTS. After his training with Manfred Pollin, he continued to extend his practical expertise with AMAZONE machinery. One day he got a second-hand AMAZONE VW van, and this is how he became known in the region as "the man in the green van". When the VW van had to be exchanged, it was replaced by a raised roof van. This is technically better equipped for customer service and offers more space for the training of young employees.

The most important AMAZONE wearing parts of LuTS and an extensive range of tools are now on board in this van, in order to provide AMAZONE customers with optimum support. For the electronics, the on-board workshop has a Wi-Fi hot spot for connection to the manufacturer or back to the company. Tobias Barthel thought that the van should continue to reflect the AMAZONE brand, so he picked out pictures together with the AMAZONE marketing photo archive and had them printed on his van. LuTS GmbH has been an AMAZONE Premium Service Partner since 2022.
