When you bought them, did they come with a free set of "Fuzzy Dice"?

Neat old info, I bet they look really nice.


You forgot about the curb feelers, er... or would they be row feelers? :D

That is very cool info about the white wall tires. I think I had seen a pic one time with one having them but I can't remember for sure. I think they had the hubcaps on it also.

Was passing through the area and stopped by for the pics :D
The white walls dont look as good with the chains and snow all over it but you get the idea LOL. I also snapped a pic of the seat because its in such good shape.

Thanks for posting the pictures, Brian. Those w/wall fronts have to be really rare! Great looking seat too.

Brian, thank you for those pictures. That tractor needs to be restored and put away. Thats the only one I've seen with these.

All yellow Tubeframe Snow casters were flat Backed. The red and Black snow casters were the round back models. It is true that the round back work better than the flat back do.

They made them for the Large Frames so maybe that's what you saw..

Here's a picture of a round back and flat back. The round backs work better because the back is curved which moves the snow out the chute more efficiently. The flat backs have a back that goes almost straight up which causes the snow to "re circulate" out the front.
