Wow! Good luck with that.

 

I bet the fully restored four wheel Handiman I saw at a show yesterday could be had for less than that.

 Even then it might be too much. I can't figure out exactly what he has missing. Is it a gear for the axle/trans or is he missing the gear and the trans? It doesn't have an engine either. What's left? Did Sears ever offer the Handiman walk behind with rubber tires? The Jr had them but I can't remember about the big ones.

 

The other question would be if its actually a Handiman. In my experience the only company that ever made garden tractors were Sears. Everything is a David Bradley.    :wallbanging:

he's posted this in several groups. What its missing is the bull sprocket that is on the inner side of the axil tube. I beleive he said once it had good 22" tires and cast center rim. Sear offered optional rubber tire starting with the 1935 model, but they were 30x7, which in todays sizes translates into a 7x18.I have one they came on spoked rims, on my 35'. Later on they used a 22" tire mounted on what looks a lot like a modern dayton type rim, with a cast center. Its the same setup you find on the RT. At the last posting i saw from him he want $100 for the whole thing. Good parts to be had if your a Handiman collector.

naw i didnt poach it, i just figure it would help you from getting in over your head with another in a long line of Sear built stuff. Hate to see you bullet nosed guys using real tractors with turning brakes and reverse built in.

I already have more than enough projects now. I'm just glad it will be saved instead of scraped.

I'm confused. (nothing new)
You bought the $7500 walk behind?
Or you bought a $100 walk behind?
They're not the same one, are they????
