I just bought this from a dealer in Missouri that sold Panzers in the 60's. The salesman's story was the owner took it home and plowed snow with it over the years. It was still the "dealerships" and never sold....until me. I guess that makes me the 1st owner! That being said, you know a salesman will say anything to make a sale. I tell the story with a grain of salt and add a disclaimer of no proof. The guy had the seat replaced with one that had a cushion. I find the whole story a bit far fetched, but hey, I drove it onto the trailer! Anyway, here are some photos.

Here are a few parts that should be arriving in the mail in the next week or so. Meteor weights and a pto/gearbox.

I'd really like to find a two speed attachment.

Holy Crap Clint.  What a find.  You did really good.  On another note, Thanks for waking up this sleeping giant.  The winter is long and we need to talk about something.

Did Panzer make a two speed attachment or is it custom?

I am not sure who manufactured the two speed attachment. I'm sure someone on here will be able to answer that. Jim Haynes said in all of his years he has only come across 3 or so. I found the picture on the internet. I do not have one. It would just be nice to stumble across one someday.

There was a panzer with the two speed attachment at the Zagray summer show this year. I'm not sure who's It was . It was just up the hill from Jim on the same side.

Whether you are the first owner or not, I think you made a great purchase.  It looks to be in very good shape!

Was this two speed attachment a Standard to Lower gearing or standard to higher gearing?  Does that question make sense ?  I am going back to my Model T Ford days when you could buy a Ruxtell two speed rearend either way, for highway or for hill climbing.

I just got an explanation from Al Hofer.  He said they were lower gears and were found on Panzers with bucket loaders.  He has one attached to his snowblower machine.
