I would like to know if anyone has this Standard Engine garden tractor.
It would be neat to see if one exists; since, I have never seen one.

Thanks, I'm glad I joined,too. I'm learning a lot on here. I like that it is just garden tractor related.
I have an Adobe Photoshop program. I have already scanned my catalog into it. I could make it a larger scale. Maybe, that would help.

The following is quote from the Standard Engine Co. catalog page 31. Date of publication is unknown as no date was given.
"A Story of Progress"
"Then came the greatest forward step in Garden Tractor building-the first completely enclosed Standard. What a vast improvement over the dirt collecting chain drive machine or the grinding, poorly lubricated exposed gear type. Built as a unit with gears, clutch, transmission and final drive housed in the crank case, and with lubrication positive and efficient-this new Standard stood far ahead of the field, and even yet on many a farm over the country you will find these first enclosed machines rendering faithful service to their owners.
But demand came for a tractor with more clearance and vision and greater ease of handling. Again the engineers of the Standard Engine Company bent to the problem and the next development was the high wheeled Tractor illustrated in the field picture below. Wheel tread was also made adjustable-and the power plant to located as to give maximum draw bar pull, and low center of gravity for side hill work.
Response was enthusiatastic-the factory enlarged-and the STANDARD became "the measure of Garden Tractor value." But each year saw engineering advancements. The need arose for a garden tractor which would plow as well as cultivate. And so came a greater STANDARD with plowing power the first of the Standard "Monarchs," reaching its ultimate development in the MONARCH Models of Today."

Thank you for the Standard Engine info, I don't know very much about them or the Walsh tractor but there will be others along who collect them.
