Love to find one of those out here. Been trying to figure out what makes one an F or G model. They kind of look the same in a picture.

I really like that oiled rust finish. I tried to copy the picture for a screen saver, but kept getting the mouse blow upper.

The E and the F used a single cylinder New Way engine. it was rated at 5 HP. The Gs used a 2 cylinder Leroi water-cooled. There were 3 different models used through the G production run but all were 2 cyl Leroi. they ranged from10-12 HP

ok so people claiming to have an F wit the 2 cylinder really have a model G.

 Another difference between the 2 is that the F has handlebars and the G has a steering wheel with rack and pinion steering. Someone did send me a picture once of an F frame with a 2 cyl engine on it. I tried to get more info with better pictures and a serial number but they wouldn't ever respond. I wondered if it would have been an experimental of some sort or it was just someone's creation. If you know where that tractor is, I'd like to document it for my records. I do know where there is an F with the New Way and steering that appears to be something they were experimenting with. It has a 25 date which was the last year for the F. The company was good for making one offs that were never advertised.
