For what it's worth, that's what I said when I saw it.

We got It!

Oh my Goodness!

You guys- it puts the Viking and the Twin to shame in size.

This is the Grand-Daddy of them All!

The plow, harrow and cultivator came with it.

Thanks, Jesse!

We sure do like it.  We have never seen one in person before.  Rare as "Hen's teeth" is what my husband says.

Only one wheel weight.  There is a small wooden tool box mounted onto it. Just wondering if it is an original to the Handiman.

Is a tool carriage considered a tool box?

It was call carriage for the pre-war tractors, i think post-war coined the tool box but i could be wrong.

The literature says "tool carriage" but so far I haven't ever seen even a drawing of one.

I would like someone to confirm the originality of this if possible.

The tool carriage referred there is the cultivator bar set up. I don't think the wood tool box is original.
