Maybe not a garden tractor, but apparently pretty rare and darn cool setup, like an Allis G

They used to run two of these on the farm where I worked as a kid.  They were slick.  The folks that owned and ran the farm were die hard Allis fans too so these must have been much better to work with than the G's.  If you like this you would love the Hefty F.  It was the regular tractor model.  I grew up beside a farm equipment dealer and he got into selling these Heftys for a while.  I remember walking up everyday and looking at the F.  I wanted one.

 

Here is a Hefty F

There were two G copycats in the 70's, this Hefty and the John Blue tractor.

 

Then there are also two companies (if they are still operating) making G copycats with Kohler engines and hydro drives today.  One is Tuff-Bilt, (http://www.tuff-bilt.com/) and the other one has a website too that I can't find right now.
