סיפור הטרקטור של משפחת וייסבלום
(מוותיקי המושב)
הטרקטור דגם פרגסון ,28 שנת 1952, הגיע לחצר המשפחה בשנת 1959 והחליף את הסוס והעגלה אשר עבדו עד אז במשק.
הטרקטור הוביל ביצים למחסן הביצים, ארגזי פרי הדר מהפרדס לבית האריזה ועבד בכל עבודה אשר נדרשה במשק. בנוסף לעבודה החקלאית, שימש גם להסעת הילדים לגן ולבית הספר, לפעילויות הנוער אחר הצהריים ולסרטים בערב, בכפר ויתקין. במהלך השנים עבר תאונת דרכים קשה בהתנגשות עם אוטובוס, נחצה לשני חלקים, אך תוקן ושוקם והמשיך לעבוד במשק.
בשנת 2017 - נתרם ע"י המשפחה, עבר לחצר מוזיאון הכפר והפך לחלק מההסטוריה המרתקת של המושב

Translation of the text on the sign:

The story of the tractor of the Weissblum family
(Moshav veterans)
The Ferguson tractor, 28 from 1952, arrived at the family yard in 1959 and replaced the horse and cart that had worked on the farm until then.
The tractor carried eggs to the egg warehouse, crates of citrus fruits from the orchard to the packing house and worked all the work that was required on the farm. In addition to the agricultural work, it was also used to transport the children to kindergarten and school, to the youth activities in the afternoon and to movies in the evening, in the village of Vitkin. Over the years it had a serious car accident in a collision with a bus, was cut in two, but repaired and rehabilitated and continued to work on the farm.
In 2017 - donated by the family, moved to the yard of the village museum and became part of the fascinating history of the moshav
