It's an Original Swiss Simar, mfg. by E.C. Geiger co. North Wales, PA

I would snap that up in a heart beat if it was closer. I went thru some of my catalogs
found it.
I will post a pic tonight as I am on my way to the Tractor pulls.

I could be very wrong, but I don't think that's a Simar. I think that's a B1-3 Rototiller, the older brother of the Frazer/Graham-Paige Rototillers. I know that Simars were imported into the U.S. and that Rototiller used some Simar technology, but that looks just like the B1-3 that I used to have, although the one in the ad is missing the tank. The inside of the wheels look different though and he does have the air cleaner on his, which mine was missing. Here are a couple of pictures of my B1-3 when I first bought it, and one when I started dismantling it. Mine was the earlier model of the B1-3, made in 1942 (there was another later model of B1-3 made in 1943 with very slight changes). Of course, perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe both Simar and Rototiller made the same machine, just badged differently. Earthgrinder would know.
