Anybody know what brand this is or if it's homemade? Looks really well built.

I'm pretty sure that's a Sears Handiman. Guess mid 1930's?

To be exact, its a "old standby" built in 1939. The difference between the older models and the later ones was the casting change that allow them to put a brace on top of gear box, back to the handles. Older tractors had problems with the handles breaking off. Also in 1939 there was the "improved" model, which had a 2 speed forwards and built in reverse.

$189 in 1936 was a lot of money!

Nope. Saw it on Craiglist. Way high priced. Just curious as to what it was. Here's the ad.  http://rochester.cra...4138719435.html

yes very over priced, in that shape i'd say $200 would be plenty. I just got another 37 for $75,in about the same shape.
