yep its the last bang for the handiman. Some call it the little bugger. Came in 3 or 4 models, had several attachments, including a generator and a cool dump cart. They date from 1959 into the early sixtys. some had Clintons, some had briggs engines. A few people collect them, but they never seemed to catch on like the older walker and big handiman did. The "jr" name you heard about is from the early days of Handiman, were you had full sized tractors, or could buy a lower powered jr model. They kept this name until the WWII era.
Little buggers neat little tractors, PIA to restore when compared with the big one !
No Clintons, never used them, the last one had a Techumseh and was in 61 to 62.
Sitting side by side the two tractors will make for a good laugh.
