Greetings fellow Tractor lovers - I'm a newby and recently purchased this tractor from a neighbor. He stated he thought it was a 62 Toro, however I have searched high and low on the internet and cannot seem to figure out what it is. It has a Briggs & Stratton 7.25 HP - anybody recognize it? See attached pics - Thanks for any feedback.

Well, the pics are a little smal... Do you have bigger images you could attach?

It does appear to have part of a Toro/Springfield Snowplow on it.

If it's a SF or Toro from that era, WVBuzzmaster will be your go-to guy.

WELCOME to GTTalk! We are glad you found us.

Looks like a Garden Mark offered by Montgomery Wards. I'm not sure who built those - might be Gilson.

I also thought it was a WH at first. Then I saw the front of the grill and ruled that out. Not sure what it is, if it is a springfield, then yes wvbuzzmaster is the one who will be able to help you.

I almost forgot! :welcometogttalk:

Can you get the model, type, and serial numbers from the B&S engine? .....That will help date things a bit.

A 1962 Springfield tractor is pictured here: http://gardentractor...brochures-1962/

The 1961 & 1962 Springfield tractors had vertical-crankshaft engines. ....The tractor in your pics has a horizontal-shaft engine.

No, I don't think so. The pics are pretty tiny. I think it is a Toro with a 38" mower deck....... and there is bird poop on the seat.

Thanks everyone - I found it right here on the site:http://gardentractor...cs-of-my-wards/

It's a 1964 Montgomery Ward Squire 7 1/4 made by Springfield.

If anyone else has one or know someone else who does, please let me know. I want to find out as much as I can about this model for restoration purposes - Thanks again. Roy
