Great looking tractor. I'd like to see some closer pictures of the plow setup and how it works.

They are all rubber tire. I'm pretty sure the flat frame Hi-Boy I have should be on steel, but unfortunately the Wheels were not on it when I got it. I will take some pictures this week and post them. The one is presently in pieces and hanging in the spray booth. I'm just waiting for the paint. I should have it painted and back together in a few weeks here.

. Would defiantly like to see some pictures of the high boys. I got a owners manual to those on rubber an the picture on the front is of one with the really wide spread out wheels

Here is a picture of one of the high boys with the motor removed. Can't seem to find any pictures before I took the motor off.

I always thought they reminded me of the Wards Team-trac. I think the Simplicity equivalent was the model C. Could we get better pictures of the drive and trans?

Its nice to see one of these surface, it gives me hope I can find one someday :D

I bet a Power-Ho looks like a toy when you line up the Farmer next to it :D

Welcome to the forum Nikk! That Farmer is one big machine! It really makes the others look like toys.

Very interesting!  ...Thanks for posting!

 

Can you please post the complete model/serial numbers from the engine & tractor? 

 

Have you dated the Farmer or the B&S engine ?

 

How much larger is the Farmer compared to a Gardener?

One of the first pics I posted was the farmer next to an A6A, which is only slightly smaller than a gardener. In few weeks I'll take a pic next to a gardener and post it. I have not dated it, but the serial number is 22. the model is a 9EZ-22. If anyone can put a date on it, that would be great. I have been unsuccessful at finding much literature on it before joining this site.
