Jeff has been doing some outstanding write-ups, on the history and changes of these tractors. I wanted to put all of the links in one place so that they can easily be found by anybody who needs help, is interested or just wants a good read!

1) Basic Model Designations
2) 3 Point Hitch And Drawbar Differences
3) Hood Terminology And Styles
4) Deluxe And Standard Model Differences
5) Desirable Options/ What Makes Them More (or less) Valuable
6) Rebadged Economy Tractors
7) Parts Sources

Disclaimer: Nobody is an expert on these tractors. Poor record keeping combined with records that were destroyed in the early years have made that impossible. The information in the threads above is accurate to the best of any given person's abilities and is based on all available information at the time combined with years of research, use and repair. There will be small variations due simply to the way the company operated. The above information is only intended to cover the basics of what was offered from the factory in an effort to keep an accurate history of the company. Any in depth questions or issues should be posted in the discussion forum to gather information that will lead to an accurate answer. Threads will change as new information is brought forward and verified. Thank you.

If a mod could make this a sticky, I think it would be very helpful to have it pinned.

Please let's take it back off until we are sure we have all of the info we can get. I just added to it with the padded seat that you brought up. Unless it updates whenever I change it. That would be nice.

OK, I see now that it's just a link to my original post and it updates as I update because it's the same thread. Sweet! Thanks.

Yep, any changes you make to the post will change here also. And, when somebody posts in any of those threads it will be seen when the link above is clicked on.

One question I have is, if this does ever get pinned, will we still be able to change it? I assume yes by going to the original thread and not to the pinned thread?

This will become the pinned thread. The only differance is that it will stay at the top of the thread list. All other aspects are exactly the same. Pinning is just to keep the thread from being burred and easy to access.

Ryan, thanks so much for all the easy-to-access information.  I bought one of these tractors today.  From the info I have gathered it is a 1977 with hydraulics and has a single shifter.  These are really unique little tractors.
