The B model is not really as hard to find as some of the earlier ones, seen 2 sell on C-list in Ma last spring and fall, nice looking one whent to NY from a friend of mines, barn freash and a steal at $100, as usual i found out after the sale. they are around as much as DB tractors are.
I collect Planet Jr. tools such as push plows and seeders.

Yep DougT it looks like the one you posted ,at least whats left of it
the tool tray on top is what stuck out at least that's what I think it
is The weights go on the axles on these thought that was pretty neat

trowel I have Planet Jr push plows also thet made a pile of stuff over the years
sold 2 horse plows about a month ago they were just so big to deal with

Yeh, there are plenty of the push plows but im more interested in the ones from the late 1800's, seeders are my favorets, use one from the 1920's for the garden, i dont want to :hijacked: so i'll stop here.
If you need help with the Briggs 6 or the redution gearbox let me know.

Thanks for the pic's, no hurry on it,
yeh, it's rusty but i see a lot of usable parts, the plow looks great, good point, disk looks good, everything looks to be there, same with the sickle mower, tractor frame looks to be compleat, the saddle weights are a nice catch, engine looks ruff but overall i expected worse, much worse.
That's a nice find, engine is NPR6 (model 6) aluminum head/sump, mid 1950's.

Welcome to the forum, Blown 331. Sounds like you are describing a Planet Jr Tuffy or Super tuffy. Check out the link in the second post of this thread. It shows one.

Thanks! And yes it looks a lot like that but the one I have is older I think. Its an all cast iron engine. Horse and a half I think. The one in the picuture looks like an aluminum block to me.

I found a pic of mine! It runs great!

Hello, I new to GT talk. I have several Planet Jr tractors including Model AT, HT, HB, HW, BP-1, B-1, A-1 and a tuffy. I also have several seeders and cultivators.

The above tractor is a tuffy from the early fifties. It should a Briggs 5s engine on it. The egine can be dated by the serial number.
