Thanks Brian.

    • Dave Rose said thank you

I can likely add to your research as I have posted catalog scans in Yahoo Groups from Farmerik's collection. Pre-war models that come to mind are a Team-Trac and in the UK the Hoe-mate, Chor-mate and Plow-mate sold by BMB (British Motor Boat Co.)


This is the 1st Group


Once you are in use the Links to see the others posted so far.

Great write up Brian. Just found it and you did quite well with it. Was your sources the old Wards farm & garden catalogs?

Don't forget the Midland built tractors for Wards.

Very interesting reading. I didn't know that Bolens produced some early MW.
