of the Senator tractor I had years ago. I have been slowly going through and tagging the 10,000 pictures on my laptop and was surprised when I came up with this. It seems like it said "Town & Country" along the top of the hood. Anybody ever see one of these??

This tractor was pretty strong, it had a three speed and a 16HP Briggs. This picture was taken by my brother and I just emailed him to see if he has any more. I know we did not get our first digital camera until August 2001 and I do not have any of this tractor. This was taken where we live now, shortly after we bought the land, we had a few issues with the driveway when we first started using it regular. There is a picture somewhere from the day I buried my Ford work van up to the axles in the middle of the drive. Did not have a fun time that weekend:wallbanging:.

Yep that's what we started with, looks lovely doesnt it? We are on an "Island" with connecting driveway back to the subdivision street(check it out on the member map, I am in the middle of the lower peninsula). I don't believe there was a speck of road gravel when we first started using the drive and don't want to think about how much we eventually brought in, dirt ain't dirt cheap you know:bigrofl:

When my Brother bought an old farm house down state this was one of two old tractors(other was a Jacobsen Chief) that came with it in the barn. I think he bought it not too much before this picture was taken. At the time he was not able to find any information on the internet about it but I have not thought to try recently. I have not seen another like it before or after.

That's a cool picture Greg! I may be wrong, but i think I remember the "Country Squire" name as being associated with Monkey Wards...Built by Gilson maybe. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Nice pic of you and the tractor. I'm sure someone can dig up some info on it. Thanks for sharing.

I think you are right on the above but if memory serves right and hopefully a clearer picture will verify it, this said "Town & Country", not Country Squire.

Duh! Sorry. One track mind...obviously on a completely different track!
