handiman.jpg I am thinking about selling my Sears Handiman RT Tractor. It runs good original rear tires in great shape. No attachments close to show condition. Any help would be great.It is located in Mid-Michigan.

Nice looking tractor.  If you were closer I might consider trying to but it.  It would go good with the one I have.

I have talked with a few people on websites and they said between 2000 and 3000. I probably will list it for 2200 b/o just got to figure out where...Ebay??? want it to go to someone that would appreciate it like I have. One guy said for the asking price if he had the money he would be right over to pick it up as he has 2 and has more than that into either one of his. So guess that amount would be fare. As far as the other question about how it was bought, I believe I am the 4th owner. Original owner sold it to another family member which restored it...did a nice job. That family member sold it to another guy who took it to shows, who I bought it from, which he has now passed. That"s all the history I have on it. Other than it was ordered from the sears catalog in spring of 1939.

I have seen one of these up close. They are neat pieces of engineering.

Does yours have the double siamese belt?

My friend had one in a parade, bumper the shifter lever while in motion and really thrashed his tranny. Partly his fault from what I understand, but also someone "repaired" a few things in there years ago.
He waited a year to find enough parts in his budget range, but he got it all back together. It's so neat to see it driving again.

Its a single belt drive. Dual brakes. 2 forward and 1 reverse gear. Steers easy almost as easy if it had power steering. Front axle is adjustable also. Starts right up.
