What is your oldest tractor in your collection? Lets do two categories. Riding tractors and walk behinds.

 

My oldest walker is a 1940 standard walsh. My oldest rider is a 1948 bolens ridemaster.

My oldest walk behind (and only walk behind) is a '37 Wards Culti-Mower, which I found locally with the proper 'Wards', 3/4hp Lausen RLC 406. It was the first garden tractor model produced by Simplicity Manufacturing. I intend to restore it....the Lausen already is. I have collected some cultivator parts (mine was missing the tools) and an excellent Wards Riverside 4-12 powergrip tire.

Very Nice!

Is it still a work in progress or do you have it fully painted and running? Is that snowplow in the background for it?

First time I have seen an actual Bolens "V" plow besides in the manuals!
