I got this from the scrap yard on the way home last night. It's very rough, but it's not stuck, don't know about tranny, stuck in gear. I figured the wieghts are worth the 20 bucks I gave for it.

The name plate is very hard to read, I think it says "POWER-TRAC", it may says WARDS in front of power trac.

Nice find and save! You got the wheel weights cheap and the rest for free! Montgomery Wards did sell a power trac 2 wheel tractor. I am not sure but I think Simplicity may have built it for them.

Sorry I can't help with your questions, but those wheel weights are HUGE! They must weigh 75 Lbs. a piece! Nice save Brian! BTW, I agree with your assessment of a Motgomery Wards Power Trac. That's what it looks like it says to me too.

Yeah, that is an awesome score...very jealous. I found this "Up for auction we have this vintage Power Trac 7 Hp Quick Hitch garden tractor with accessories manufactured by Montgomery Wards. The attachment that is on this machine now is a trimmer/mowing head. It measures 31 1/2″ side to side, 14 1/2″ from top to bottom, and 18″ front to back. The mower deck has a tag that I can get a partial reading, 13465. Measures 27″ side to side, 22″ front to back, 14″ top to bottom. Has a blade that measures 23 1/2″. Tiller head is missing a tire. Measures 36″ front to back, 36″ side to side and 19″ top to bottom. The tractor itself has 2 tags on which reads Briggs Stratton motor model 19, Type 706017, Serial number 71017, the other tag has the gear shift pattern and some information on the tractor. Measures 64″ front to back, 28″ side to side, 42″ top to bottom at highest point. Tires on the tractor are 6-12 2 Ply tires. Serial number 5155. Engine is free. We have not ran this Power Trac. We are listing this item on eBay, so if you’re interested in purchasing this item, please contact us at grainery@adams.net."

Hope it helps. I found it on this website-> Power Trac Garden Tractor Walk Behind Mower Cultivator! | Garden Accents

I've been in the manuals a lot lately & I am POSITIVE I saw that front weight in one of them... Someone here uploaded info on that, just wish I could remember what brand... Hopefully the uploader will step forward & let us know...

Man, those are pretty stout looking machines. How do they turn? Are they tank operations or just man power?
