here are the pictures.  The material seems to be like Tyvek  and not canvas.

 This is great. It's the first time I've seen actual photos of this. Do you have the part that mounts it to the tractor/seat?

Is there any branding on it? How would you know it's Panzer? I would imagine they would be sold through other tractor makes as well???

Looks to be in really nice shape.

No parts for mounting, the pole does adjust a little to make it taller.  No brand names or part numbers that I can see, but I will double check.  It is a simple design and figure it was make by someone else, but you never know.

Is that a Panzer plow? I saw one of those go for a little over $400.

Big AL, Maybe this is the connection you have been looking for.

 Are the metal parts steel or aluminum?

   Thanks for being patient with us, but this is something we don't get to see too often.

Yes both the turn plow and the snow plow are panzer.  I could not figure out how to mount the turn plow until I found the attached.  The mounting is at a slight angle that tilts the plow to the right of 90 degrees.

 

 All the metal parts of the umbrella are steel, I think, will double check that too.  I am excited that my topic is now HOT!  Never had that before.  Stay tuned!

Yes I was referring to the garden plow not the push blade.

WOW! that plow didn't even have the Coulter (Sod Cutter) on it.  That was an option for the plow.  I plan on cleaning up the plow and umbrella and mounting them on the t707es and selling as a package to finance the restoration of the Pennsylvania I have.

 

The guy from Dandy sales got back to me with some conflicting information on the Umbrella.

 

 

The umbrella is a rare option if it is originally Panzer (aqua & white).  Panzer did not make them and sold limited numbers.  The same umbrella with different coloring appeared on Wheel Horse, John Deere, Cub Cadet and others.  They really aren’t rare except in the original colors.  As far as I know there was no sales or parts literature  produced for these.  A tube clamp went into the rear drawbar to mount it.

 

Everything I have read about them list them as being yellow, mine is yellow.  maybe the early ones (1950's) were the aqua and white.  Also the mounting in the sales brochure is under the seat and not on the hitch.  I know that sales brochures don't always tell the real story.....

You did good Sharkman. I wish you lived closer, I'd like to see that umbrella. Stay with Jim Haynes from Dandy Sales. He is quite a guy and always willing to help. I'm glad to have him as a neighbor.
