Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Next you will tell me that this is not a tractor concert:

Sveriges första EPA-konsert på Tjörn - Nyheter P4 Väst Sweden's first EPA-concert at Tjörn - News P4 West
I går hölls Sveriges första EPA-konsert i Skärhamn på Tjörn. Traktorkonserter har satts upp tidigare på ön, men det här är första gången EPA-traktorerna tog sig in på scenen.Yesterday was the first Swedish EPA concert in Skärhamn Tjörn. Tractor Concerts have been set up earlier on the island, but this is the first time EPA tractors made their way onto the stage.

You ever get the feeling something's getting lost in translation?  I see now that what we're talking about is that peculiarly Swedish phenomenon, the A-traktor (Norwegian cousin tipped me off.).

Actually, the A-tractor class was introduced to replace the original EPA-tractors, but after protests the existing EPA-tractors remained although no new EPA-tractors can be registered.

A-traktor - Wikipedia A tractor - Wikipedia
Den principiella skillnaden mellan EPA- och A-traktorn är att A-traktorn måste vara konstruerad för en maxhastighet av 30 km/h +/- 10% medan EPA-traktorn skulle vara konstruerad med ett visst utväxlingsförhållande (10:1).The principal difference between the EPA and A tractor is that the A tractor must be designed for a maximum speed of 30 km /h /- 10%, while the EPA tractor would be designed with a specific gear ratio (10:1 ).

A-tractors are often called EPA-tractors too, so your Norwegain cousin was almost right.
