It looks real similar to this one. It's in this brochure, so I would guess late 60' to early 70's.

Does the tailgate swing up?

Thanks Kenny!
Tail gate does not swing. Just lifts up.
Says manufactured by Kinsco on the label.
I'm not familiar with them.

Guess I should have looked that label over better. But is does look similar in build as the one I pictured. I would say it is around that time period due to the tongue design.

Decal is same style as used on other Jacobsen chief attachments. I'd love to own a cart like that for my Chief tractors! I have a Jacobsen gt series cart I'd trade you if you ever came down my way!

This one is small, with hard rubber wheels and a long neck.
Almost like a walk behind attachment?
I don't think Jacobsen ever made walk behinds?

Unfortunately I didn't measure it.
It's about 2/3 or 1/2 the size of the common newer models.
Rather well made. No dents on it.
I thought the name "Lawn Butler" might ID it?
I'm thinking it was made in the mid fifties.

Joe
