Its homemade. Or something that has been modified a lot. He is the next town over from me. Cool tractor, but way to much money.

It kinda looks like a Shaw DuAll from the grill and hood but I all the ones I've seen have the name on the grill and the crank above the frame and this one it looks to be even with the frame.  Maybe a different model than I've seen.  Not sure.       Stewart

I'm thinking some sort of modified tractor ??

The engine is your standard Wisconsin twin cylinder stationery engine complete with grille, hood and gas tank.

What ever it is, it looks like it was built well

I'm thinking along the same lines.  I think it at least started life as a Shaw.

I agree with the Shaw diagnoses, but like others said, it is a standard Wisconsin "shrouded" engine.  It may be a homemade job, after all. 

 

Yep I showed him and he called me a moron

 

Everyone who has something he wants a fortune for hates the guy who tells him what he really has.

I know what you mean. Every thing he has is gold. And everything you have isn't. He makes me so mad. I don't even go to his shop anymore.

Looks to be a modified Jacques Mighty Mite. Some one has put a 2 cylinder Wisconsin in it instead of the Briggs zz.

I thought it looked like Shaw beginnings, but the engine & shrouding appear to be some sort of APU dropped into the frame.
