I don't anything about it, but it sure looks like a great little design.  I don't believe I've ever even seen one similar.


Is the tag intact on the engine?  That will start you moving in the right direction.

almost looks like it was started as a one wheeler and then went a differant direction. Appears like it would be top heavy and not real freindly to sloping areas. Like that old L plate that was worked into the design. Alway good to find something built in your area of the county.

Could there be a connection to the Stover family ? Stover had many different companies make everything from Stover,s God Engines to bike and hand cranked mills. I have mills and hit and miss engines. The original Stover company was bought after it failed in the 40,s by Fairbanks Morse. Never say that tag before you might have something really special tries googling Stover. Cheers Mike

We had the local tractor show this weekend and last weekend at the Oregon Steam Up in Brooks, Oregon. I was able to locate and talk to  a couple collectors with these machines.  I found there was 2 models were produce, MTT 100 and MTT200. The MTT 100 was a one wheel tractor and MTT200 was the two wheel. I was able to buy a second Garden Pal from the orginal owner with a replacement engine. He said they came with a Kohler K90 engine painted in the Kohler blue. The tractor was painted in roughly Chevy red main body, black handles. The gear boxes left unpainted. So far I have located six Garden Pal. One MTT 100 serial # 1272 and five MTT100 serial # 1064,1135,1263,1283,  the last had no serial number plate. I have to wonder if the company started the serial # at 1000 and had a short production of these machines, of less then 500.
