OK, so Don't Get the Ground Pounder part?  Frame kinda looks Speedex like, but not sheetmetal. Kinda like Power King fenders, or maybe Speedex?  Hood looks more Case or Colt?  Can't see front axle well enough or grill, and part under seat too closed up to see much. Have never seen a Tamper with wheels, so don't get the pounder name????

I suspect the Ground Pounder decal is an add-on along with the Wynn's. Pretty cool none-the-less. I agree it looks very Case/Colt looking. Too bad the engine is not included. That's the most appealing part IMO.

That decal looks like it says M&W in front of the Ground Pounder.  M&W made a lot of parts for big farm tractors and some creepers and such for Cub Cadets, possibly they tried their hand at their own garden tractor?

Is that a 12.5hp K330 or K331?

 

Kinda looks like it is.Haven't seen one in person but I've heard they have an internal Oil pump and none of the standard K301 parts will work in it.Crank,crank bearings connecting rod and piston are very different.

 

 

Found a manual for one.Alot of Strange to me parts in one of those.Looks like the Head and head gasket are even different than a K301.

Does not look like a K330-331. K330-331 is much bigger

I agree.

 

The K331 is a beast of an engine though.  I've got some original sales brochures around here somewhere.
