Here's a garden tractor brand I can't find much about. I collect the history of these companies and post them on my website so others can learn about them.
I'd like to get some history together as to what happened with the Great Lakes Tractor Company. I know they built one wheelers and two wheelers, and I have one ad with the company advertising a soap box derby style car, powered by a Clinton. The brand name there was "Diamond Quality Product." The date was mid 1960's.
I have seen Chief, Chieftan, Economy Chief and Junior Chief machines as made by this group.
So who knows something about this company? Any good tractor advertisements? Manuals? Anybody from Rock Creek Ohio here on the forums to find the old plant?
