Its kind of fun watching this thread in two completely differnt types of groups, and seeing the answers both the same and completely differnt.


Hah, hah, you know what they say, ''great minds think alike'' or in our case, tractor collectors think alike :smilewink:

Very nice collection and great resto work.It seems that Europe/UK have more of the Walk behind tractors. IS that because the garden areas are smaller?

John, here are some pics of my Colwood model A. Like I mentioned, the engine is a knock-off of the early Lauson engines used here in the states. It has JAP cast in the block just like Lauson cast their name in. The carb is the same as the Zenith lauson used but has JAP cast in it also.

yes i suppose that this is the case,we did produce larger models but i think europe had even a bigger and better choice of machines. if you go to VHGM FORUM IN UK THERE IS A GUY ON THERE CALLED TONY SPIRET HE LIVES IN BELGIUM AND HE HAS SOME HUGE WALK BEHINDS.

Sadly i am running out of space here as the whole machine is now around my ankles. i am so desperate for room here that it is unreal,and now am having to tie up painted sections in the shed roof. my work bench is only 3 ft square . I REALLY MUST EXPAND !!!!!!!!!!

well i normally brush paint,and i am tempted to do it again on this resto,but it will be dependant on the paint i use. will be puting up a update soon with pictures and we will see where we go from this point.
