Has anyone ever heard of a Springfield tractor? A friend of mine just picked one up. I'm trying to get him to send me the serial No. so we can learn more about it. I'll see if I can get some pics to post also.

Yes springfield made a larger tractor, they had a gear and sector steering with a right side draglink that we used on a custom pulling tractor. there wasn't much left, but it was a reddish orange color,trimmed in cream or white. It had a front engine but it was gone. we found it in a hollow in a junk pile. hope this helps WAWCUB47

Thanks guys for all that. Great pics. I believe that the one my friend has is newer than the ones shown. It has a fiberglass hood and seat pan. I'm excited for the guy! It's his first piece of rusty junk that he wants to restore...could be the start of a beautiful addiction.

Here's a couple of pics of my Springfield 62A. I finally got it in the garage last night, shined the points, cleaned the carb, changed the oil, and wouldn't you know it - I was mowing like a maniac this afternoon. The hex shaft and aluminum pulley are worn when the deck is down but up it works fine. I like to mow my grass taller anyway.

Our son takes his first solo drive on the Springfield today. I figured it would be an easy one to get him started on. Mommy wasn't home at the time :smile1:

jdslednut; That video is awesome! Just hope you wife's not surfing youtube later. I HAVE got to get some pics of my friends Springfield. All the ones posted here are smaller lawnmower type units. His is a 12 HP garden tractor with an actual rear differential. He's been on Midnights for 3 weeks now and I've been on dayturn so we haven't gotten together to get some pics, but eventually we will.
