These are the last of the Red-E line and are basically the same as a Page. They are late 40s-early 50s era. Red-E made some interesting tractors back in the 20s and 30s.

Hi All,
I got these coming this way and I may need a tire or two. The tires are 550 × 16 . Any ideas where I might find them ? Or another size that might work? What is a good price ? ( A good used pair would be great ).

Thanks
Ted

Last I heard they weren't making the 550X16s anymore and they were getting hard to find. 600X16s will work but they are a little wider and taller.

To find 5.50-16 lug tire look for the "traction implement" on sites such as miller tire. I am pretty sure they still make them.

Thanks All!
I found some tires a little pricey! $200-380 delivered depending on size & brand. I just might have to do something else.
I also got a manual for a 1946, and brochure for a 1949 they show the engine mounted on a steel plate bolted to the tractor with a flat belt pully coupling connecting them. You can see from the picture the engine is mounted directly on the tractor . I'm wondering if this is a later than 1949 or earlier? I guess engine serial numbers might be the best way of dating it.(The engine tag is missing, any numbers on the engine anywhere) Is a tractor serial numbers list available?
I don't have the tractors here but can call or email if I know what to ask.

Thank
Ted

I found a factory sales Brochure dated 1952 that has photos of a Red E like yours.
