I'd like to change my answer. This could possibly be a factory built unit. At our local show today I saw one that is very similar. The tranny mounts and looks the same and the huge drive pulley is exact in size, shape, and color. The local tractor was bought out of a local salvage yard just two weeks ago. The differences are, it has metal handles - maybe the wood ones rotted? - and the wheels are cast iron spoked wheels with stamped steel rims. It also has a Wisconsin engine with serial tag of Wards and the most beautiful mint condition Wards Riverside knobbie tires with NO weatherchecking.
I took pics but can't seem to get them to upload to my computor. I'm hoping grnspot can get some pics Saturday and post them later. ?????
