Here's the other tractor that I received in the trade for my Shaw (as explained in my thread on my Waterloo Bronco). This is an Empire riding tractor. Empire was known for its walk behind tractors, but they did produce a handful of riding tractors as well. There are very few of these around, and most estimates suggest there were around a dozen produced, and who knows how many of those still survive (I do know where a few of them are). It uses a crank start Briggs ZZ engine, mated to a T-92 transmission, the same as what was used by Economy. The rear end is borrowed from their walk behind models, as are the rear wheels. These are a heavy, beastly little tractors. Here are some pictures, and again, sorry for the poor quality. I'll take better ones when the weather cooperates and I have more time. I don't know why the front wheels look like they're toed out in the pictures - they aren't really. I do have the seat and the air cleaner and all that. They just weren't on there when I took the picture. The tractor does need a a bunch of work. It's nice to now have a Waterloo Bronco and an Empire rider in my collection for a little Canadian content. There were so few garden tractors produced here.
