Seen one on CL, and looks like a nice little tractor. Stamped made in Chagrin Falls Ohio on the grill right below "LEADER". It's in Lancaster, Ohio. I don't know how to put the add on here but the posting ID# is 2808536890. Says it has new motor and looks pretty good in the pics for $2000.00 Just thought i'd post this in case anyone was interested.
Thanks.

My Dad had one, very distinctive unit if they have the original wheels on them.

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.

Know nothing about them and had never seen one before. Google shows it had a Hercules engine.
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.

I have been looking for my 26-56 book ever since this thread came up. Today I literally stubbed my toe on it (somehow under the bed?)

Here is the only Leader Entry:
