Tractor of March 2017 - Vaughan model E Flex Tredfeatured tractor tractor of the month
I would like to nominate my Vaughan model E Flex Tred , but first Thanks to Doug for bringing back the Walk behind category. I found this Vaughan on Craig`s list four years ago in Connecticut, the second one I found in that state , strange considering they were made in Portland Oregon The tractor was purchased in the 40`s (used) and stayed in that family until the son sold it to me in 2013.
This Vaughan made in the late 20`s to early 30`s as a guess no production records are known to exist, still very close to it`s original condition, Schebler carburetor , Bosch magneto , Powell oiler and fuel filter.The original magneto has been rebuilt and it runs good , what the early Vaughan`s lacked were turning brakes or individual clutches to make a turn with this it is a matter of strength. yours. The water cooled Vaughan`s made in models K , M, D , H , E , E1 and E2. E2 was the two cylinder model. After that came the models S , W WS and the factory built riding version of the WS These models were air cooled.
