They made several models of these through the years with 5-10hp engines, the model 80 being one of the more popular

I had 1 that was in bad mechanical condition.Took the deck off and made a go cart out of it for my brothers girls.
Mine had a 8hp briggs with pull and electric start.
After a couple years of the kids popping the clutch to get the front end to come up the bearings on the rear axle collapsed and it bound up the drive chain and ripped the teeth off of the input shaft in the transmission.I could of fixed it but the kids had the fibreglass body beat up pretty good.
Cool little tractors though.They have a 1 x 2" square tube frame,chain drive rear with 3 speed peerless gear box.

"Bathtubs" as they were called. Neat little deals that are quite collectible nowadays. My grandfather had a 60 for a few years. That one was actually a 4 speed and forward and reverse were accomplished through belt idlers and two seperate pedals.

Maybe not so unusual I guess, eh?
