I have an old Planet Jr that has steel wheel with steel paddles, approx 3" square on them. Haven't found any pictures of this anywhere. Wheel don't look homemade either. HELP!

Welcome to the forum. Pictures really would help us I. D. your tractor. The wheels you are describing sound more like a Tiger cat or Bear Cat than a Planet Jr.

Well, I'll get some pics, but got 50 strawberry plants and two cherry trees on tap for today!
I say planet jr only because there was one cultivator sweep rigged onto this that had those marks. I'll check pics of the ones you guys mentioned too.

I'll do some looking and see what I can find for you. They were built in California by Ellinwood Industries after WWII. A lot of tractor manufacturers furnished the P-Jr tools with their tractors.

I hope I get this right. Neither of these have a tag and I don't know if they ever used a tag. This is the one I always considered a Tiger Cat. The round disc part of the wheel is about 24 in diameter. The frame is made of angle iron and the handles have an X in the center. The engine is a Lauson TLC and I believe its original.

This is the one I've considered the bearcat. This one is on rubber but they did make them on a wheel similar to the other one only smaller. This had a solid piece of plate for the frame and the handles have a sideways K in the center. I don't think this engine is original to the tractor.
