The million dollar question, "How would you know a Walsh Handiman if you saw one??"

I'll save Candy the trouble, It's in the wheels!! The Walsh had round spokes and wood handles. The Handiman had flat spoke wheels and steel handles. In 34 the Standard Walsh went back to the steel handles but retained the round spokes in the wheels even though the rim design changed. A few years back I did a write up on the differences between the 31 and 32 Handiman for Del Sasser from the Handiman.com.site. Not sure if it ever got posted there or not. I remember the 31 had 6 spoke wheels and the 32 had 8. In 32 the gas tank was oval and sat side to side. I'm sure there were other differences but off the top of my head i can't remember them. Oh, by the way, there was a Handiman tag that was about 1/2" X 2". it was located on the flat where the battery box sits and is sometimes even covered.

i could be wrong, but seems to me there was an SR in the serial number of a Walsh/Handiman, and just a D in the plain Walsh model.

I'll save Candy the trouble,

Hey Doug, I wouldn't want to steal your limelight. Besides, I have zero information on the Walsh/Handiman model. It is only recently that I have begun to hunt down information and literature on any of our garden tractors. I guess if we own the tractor, we have to collect the literature that goes with it.

If you still have a copy of that write up, you could expand on it with what you know about the "evolutionary process" and then publish it here as an article! I think that would be a great addition to the site's knowledge base :thumbs:

Just to show the tractor that started this thread really does exist, here is a picture of one that showed up at Portland swap. Even had my name on it!

I never did find it in its entirety over there. There are more detailed descriptions under the serial numbers but it still seemed like there were more differences. Maybe its just the CRS kicking in??

HI Al,
Nicely done addition to the plow. Hopefully, one day someone will be able to shed some light on the meaning of DB markings on your plow. All of my leads; lead me nowhere.

Hi everyone. I have a 1939 5h.p. twin model standard Tractor. It does not run as of now. My grandfather passed away and I was curious if anyone may know where I can find an approximate value because I have no idea where to start. I have the original paperwork from 1940.

This is my Standard Twin. I use it with a grader blade and have a single bottom plow as well. Runs great, starts easy.
