Bought this up here in New England from the original owners family. It was in pretty rough shape.Tore it down and started the process to get it moving again. The engine that came with it that they claim was the original was a Kohler K181 so i bit the dust and bought a new one ouch! All and all there is still more to do but it runs and drives has new tires and will haul a good load of wood. I have no impliments but woul love to hook it up to a plow and see how it does! here are some photos. The transmission and clutch assembly are Crosley.

I like it, what kind of tractor is it? it's amazing how garden tractors evolved over time.

It is amazingly so simple. I like it. It would take some getting used to with the hood being mounted directly to the engine and being angled back.

:ditto:

First time I have seen one of these tractors.
The thing that's neat is its built simple but built to work/last.
Thanks for the pictures!

I would say you've got a very rare tractor! I've seen a picture of one of the 1957 Red E, Model 15 tractors. The decal, on the Grill of the model 15, says Red E Power Cultivator, Manufactured by Red E Tractor Company, Richfield, Wisconsin.

Thanks for sharing the pictures... What a great find!!!!!!!
