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.
