Standard Twin Convertible 501C12079 with steering sulky 501 1779 and snow plow. Maybe not a true walker with the sulky, but we better keep this thread going.

well I disagree. This tractor is still a walker, as much as any one that used a sulky for part of its work. My big Handiman used a sulky with the cultivator and a few other attachment, but you could still walk it if you wanted to.

Lauber1 is going to whip a visit on me soon to do some trading and you guessed it,  the one he wanted was burried in the back.  The building these are in is 60 feet long and his was third from the far end with no door on that stalls end.  Been needing to dig them out and clean off the dust, air up some tires, and rearrange them anyhow.  Some of these tractors haven't seen the sunlight in nearly 15 years.  There was another row but I got busy and forgot to get a pic of them while they were out.  :wallbanging:

This is one of the 3 Planet Jr tractors I got from Gtractor a while back. finally got it on wheels this weekend, It a 1949 model BP-1. I'm planning on using this one in the garden next spring for cultivating so its going to get a new modern engine sometime later on . still working on a cultivator setup for it.

My latest find is a 1937 Shaw D2LS.  This was the lowest priced model that Shaw offered. It sold for $136.50 in the 1939 price list.  It has one speed forward and no reverse.  The D2L was the standard model with three speeds forward and reverse.  It sold for $175.50. The D2T had three forward speeds, reverse, and power turn brakes.  It sold for $208.50.  All had a Briggs two horsepower model B engine, and were supplied with cultivating equipment.

 

This is the only D2LS that I have ever seen and am aware of.  313 mile round trip to get it way up in Maine.  I have not taken anything apart yet, but it looks like they must have removed all the gears from the model A transmission and connected the output shaft directly to the input shaft.  The extension rims are a unique design that I have never seen before.  The handle bars and clutch lever have been modified, but I have the parts needed to restore to original.

 

I will bet that the original owner regretted not paying the extra $39.00 for reverse the first time he got stuck with it and it buried itself down to the axle.
