Hi Ya'll,

This is a George made in Sullivan, IL. It has an aluminum wheel which was painted dark blue. It has a Briggs and Stratton model N engine. It has no tag. I have no literature on this model.

I'm interested in the symbol on the attachment. Is this the emblem for a George or does it have another meaning? It sort of looks like a the letter "G".

Thanks,
DB1

Welcome to GTtalk. Someone with more knowledge on them should be able to help you out. I would like to see a bigger/better picture of the emblem.

Here is a bigger picture of the emblem. It is on the cultivator that came with the George.

:wave: DB1 Welcome to GTTalk! We're glad to have you with us! That seems to be an interesting machine that you have. I know that they made larger ride on models as well, but I'm not too familiar with them. I believe that they're on the rare side though. We have a few members on here who have some and hopefully they'll be along soon to help you out. Thanks for signing up!

Well its about time you posted some of your toys on here. Glad to see you in this group. This is one of the few walker i dont know much about, other than its a fairly rare tractor. I went a slae once time in southern IL that had a bunch of info on them, as the factory as close to there. What we need is Doug T to come in and answer this question.

Thanks for your input on this garden tractor. I found a guy who was asking $100 for his George. It is the only other one I have seen and it didn't have the attachments or the shroud.

I have no idea what that emblem stands for. But I would interpret it as JD, I sometimes write my initials that way.

Thanks JD. Your interpretation is very viable. The other implement does not have this marking.

I'll give this thread a bump in hopes that someone will see it over here. I'm not much of a George expert but I know someone that is. I'll see if I can get him to weigh in on this.
