I'd like to see some pictures of an A-C walk-behind. I've never heard of them having a walk behind.

I have no pictures on computer, being that I bought it when we still shooting film, but they are the same as a Simplicity. Looks like this, but with a different engine jammed on top. Vintage Garden Tractor Page

I just got started with walk behinds. I have a Bolens Power Ho, a simplicity LC, a 1948 gravely L, and a Chinese 12hp diesel walk behind on a ship somewhere in the pacific on its way here. I hope to use it on my small farm to do some of the chores I use my small tractor for. I find these walk behinds fun and entertaining. My brother and I took the Power Ho to the LAGC meet at the Edinburg In. meet and had a great time riding around in the trailer I had hooked to it. It is a nice way to see a show.

Guess I'll chip in with my .02 cents worth. I have my dad's old walk behind 2 wheeler although I don't know what it is. I had to take it apart to get it from Ohio to IN and it's still in pieces in the shed. I remember using it to plow and disc when I was a young kid and I still have the implements also. As far as I know there are no markings or tags on it but I remember that it had an Iron Horse engine on it and I thought it was pretty cool since the cylinder was slanted forward, kinda like half of a Harley engine. Someone stole the engine off of it while it was in our backyard. Later dad used a B&S engine to power it but somehow my brother wound up with that engine. It has the ratchet wheel drive and the handles are very heavy rectangular steel stock, not the usual tubing. It will have to take it's place in the restoration line behind my Gardenall 4 wheeler however. Since I'm retired I don't seem to have any time at all!:D

I have a couple Gravely model L's. One runs, one is still awaiting attention. Have a few attachments for them - couple of field mowers, cultivator, tiller, a sulky, and grader blade. One of the gravelys has tandem wheels with wheel weights, the other is the more standard configuration.

Gravelys were old style built to last machines - and the manuals were made for people who were expected to do their own work. The gravely engine (a 6.6 hp iron monster with loads of torque) had a habit of the exhaust valve sticking if the engine sat for a long time. The owners manual (circa 1955 or so) explains how to remove the head and oil then tap the valve to free the motor back up!

Down side of gravely, at least the L model, is no steering brakes - actually no brakes at all, except for engine braking. If you spend a day muscling one of these around, you will know you have been working!

We still use ours to bushhog places the tractor won't safely go. But only in small doses!:smile1:

I have a Troy-Bilt Horse tiller, does that count? Mine is a pre-PTO model, so no nifty attachments like the log splitter, or wood chipper. But that ol' tiller sure made me some money over the years doing custom tilling of gardens.
