I've never heard or seen.  Add says it was the predecessor of Ariens.  Check it out.

We have an X wing cultipacker built by Brillion. Never knew they made garden tractors.

Sadly you can't find anything in the "about us" side of brillion.gif   but you'll find a topic in the wheel horse forum.

Never heard of them, but the price is right.  :thumbs:

 

How close is North Conway to our New Hampshire members?

Brillion was never the "predecessor to Ariens. Ariens has been in business since the 1930s and even before that, Brillion Iron Works was a separate company. The old Ariens 4 wheel GTs were called Mantiwetocs may have been made by Simplicity. People just regurgitate lies told to them by morons and they believe them, lol

A pretty nice looking little GT when restored. I was wondering where the chain went. From the pic. above it looks like it goes all the way to the rearend.

Here is a link to an old Whazzat thread on a 1962 Brillion grill I have. These GT's were only made just a few years around the early 60's by the Farm Implement Co "Brillion". Pretty rare Gt !!

Hope someone will save this rare example of a early 60s GT, there were many made in the 50s and 60s by small MFGs and some examples may be totally wiped out, very sad

Thats a neat little tractor. Somewhere I was reading on Ariens history, the family went bankrupt and restarted with farm equipment under the Brillion name. They then got started with rototillers and made a comeback. I don't know how accurate that story is for hard facts.

Really hope someone from here can nab this beauty.  If I was close enough to it I would be all over it.  I just think its a really neat little GT.

Two different companies.

Really hope that someone here is watching this thing.  2 hours left and still dirt cheap!  I know it'd be in my garage if I had a way to get it here or it was closer.  May still go up yet, but currently is a sweet deal.
