Couple nice looking Miniature JD's there with box wagon even, and many more. What brand that Blue two-wheeler with sulky?? A small Craftsman tractor, not SEARS as usually listed. What's deal with that?

Some machinist had fun with that John Deere.  It looks just like a miniature 4020.

 

What was that Ford 8N garden tractor based off of?

 

I've never seen something like that blue walk behind, either.

The little blue tractor is an early Simplicity, It belongs to Fred Oden, who was the host of the garden tractor area. I'll have to ask him sometime if its just a Simplicity or if its a Wards model. I'm not sure the sukly is a factory item for the tractor.

Lauber, you hit it right!  Right owner and is a Wards I was told. Have never seen another that small that I know. Think he said it had a 1hp engine is all.

The Ford is based on a cub, there was a kit offered to build those a few years ago , a couple pop up around here quite frequently .
