Well Guys My godfather showed this too me last october and i had no idea what it was. But then he showed it to me again and it looked like part of a pond lever steer. The rear of the tractor looks like if was from a lever steer. He said that the steering had been changed. The front looks like it is off of a speedex. It has a briggs modelzzp on it that runs great. The motor on it slides to disengage the clutch which is interesting. If you guys could look through the pics and help tell me what all of the stuff on it is from and what is from a pond that would really help me out. I wish he would sell it to me but that will probably never happen. The tractor is very neat to drive though. I got lucky and he left it at the house don't know how long it will stay. Pics are located here http://s1229.photobu...dex and others/ Thanks for the help. Jake
P.S. I have also posted this on redsquare so if you want to see the other replies they are here http://www.wheelhors...ndentification/

I D T it's a pond. Didn't they have the boilerplate rear end? (not a WH guy,if I'm wrong... Sorry)

I think i found it, the tractor in the middle is of a 1942 Speedex tiller steer. Let me see if I can find a better pic.

Alan, I was thinking it was a Speedex, at least most of it. The wheel are fashioned like Ride a way Sr..

The Pond tractor also had that style of rear end. Here's a link to a picture of a Ride away senior that I took at the Wheel Horse show last year. It looks to me like at least the differential, gear boxes, and torque tube are Pond. The transmission may or may not be, it's hard to tell as the pictures are from different sides. I'm really not too familiar with the Pond tractors, I'm just comparing the pictures that I have at my disposal.

Cool tractor Jake! I do not know all that much about Pond tractors, so I am afraid that I can not help you out.

From looking at pics of the lever steers and what someone on redsquare said. From the transmission back is pond,the lift lever and hitch are incorrect. It has the wrong steering. And the front end has been changed a little but has the original motor,front axle,and wheels. Jake
