I always thought they did such a nice job on the grills & stampings was to prove they werent home-made. The more I'm around Dad's, the more I think everything on it was an afterthought. Not what one would call "ergonomic". They were competition for the Pacers, Ponies, etc of the time.
All that said, that is a very well kept unit. I think they're about $500 high, but it's nice.

It makes me think of the Model A Avery I ran in my early teens(though the Avery had on front wheel) and Hercules water cooled 4.
I would guess around 15-20 Hp and it looks to have 8:00 X24 wheels.

My recolection is they are physically similar in size to a IH "Cub", as for horsepower ? I don't know but Hercules 4 cylinders engines of that age should be easy to look up.
How big is this tractor?Is it full sized,or would it be sized close to a Speedex,or Power King ,etc.?
