yep by all means if the called out person doesn't respond, then someone post one. Who the next victim, I mean collector to show off his or hers, as I know theres at least one female in the walk-behinds.

So you folks can do a "walk behind of the day" thread, but can't enter any of the machines in the 'Featured Tractor" thread?

ya Kenny I have entered several of them during the last 4 yrs, not doing so good at it in the last yr, sorry.

 

 Bob , been working on a feature article on the Handiman and one for the Mighty Man, but its a slow process, as writing stuff down that makes sense is sometimes hard. I get caught up with taking it for granted that people know what a walk-behind tractor is and sometimes, or most time forget to include enough details to the thread.

We'll share, Kenny. It would give you a good excuse to go buy a walk behind.

Ill throw one in for today. This is my Mclean walk behind tractor. Its going to be a restoration project, but I couldn't pass it up. I find this tractor very interesting. The first odd thing about it is the type of drive chain it has. Its like elevator chain, very heavy for such a small tractor. I really like the cast wheel centers. And the most interesting thing to me is the odd front bumper. I still haven't found an explanation for this. Any one out there have a guess? And the implement attachment method is very crude even for that time period.

don't really know, it was made of parts of a lot of things. It was so rusted together that after I got a few thing off, the rest went to the scrapper.

Going to post a couple pictures of my Bolens HQ tractor. This is by far my favorite Bolens on steel I just think it's unique the motor purrs like a kitten. I like just starting it and hearing it run. I doubt I ever restore this one I think it looks cool just like it is.image.jpg image.jpg
