Ed, first off, welcome.

Secondly, I've only ever seen one other. It was at the Saegertown PA Show and Caseguy and I took a couple of pics of it. Memory serves it was a small Ohio? Company and they weren't around very long. This gent said he looked for years for parts to bring his up to snuff.

Here are links to the pics

And a push mower made by the same company

Here is an older thread with some info

http://gardentractor...r-company-6830/

Seems they made at least 3 different sizes and that the owner went on to be a Big Wig at International Harvester.

:welcome: To the site Ed. That's a cool tractor. Looking at the pictures MH81 had links to I have a couple of questions: Do you have the mowing deck? 2. Does anyone know how the mower blades are powered?

Thanks guys for the nice things said and warm welcome,
I came to this site because when I was researching this unit I kept being led back here.

I looked around a little in the site and new immeadiatly, there is alot of knowledge here.

Thanks "MH81" for those pics, and the old Catalog cuts. Wow is it the exact machine or what??
Unfortunatley I don't have a deck but there is the little plow on it that in my opinion looks like a later fab job (but I could be wrong).

Well "Pch1li4" I drove by this thing on the side of the road, Stopped and looked at it quick, went home and searched and found an old
ad for it that this gentleman had posted in CL.

I had no use for it but thought it would make a great conversation piece and looked real Cool.

I am still tring to pinpoint the date of manufactor and pick up as much info as possile.

Let me tell you guys what I know!

It has a tag with model 45 (no A) and a serial #9 - 1591
it has a 4 hp Clinton and I have to get the #'s off of it as it looks original(maybe I can id year that way)
Its chain drivin off of a belt gear box. It does run and drive but I don't want to do any harm before I do basic maintenance.
The belts are starting to frey and there is some slop in the chains.

My garden tractor passion was started with Wheel Horse tractors, I own several late models but definately have the bug!!

This is my first different brand but has opened my eyes to the multitude of amazing different brands.

Looking forward to spending some time here and hopefully sharing some knowledge.

Thanks,

Ed
