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.

 

Okay, Jeff...I just found your challenge or invitation.

This is a walk behind but of another kind. A 1937 National Mower Company Sickle Mower.

 "Pulls itself you only steer."

If anyone has another one; please, post it or provide any information.

We only found an ad that was in a mag.

My 1957 Versa-Matic with Sriggs & Brat-Stone engine.  :smilewink:    

This tractor came with the blade pictured and tire chains. Tires are loaded. 

I also have, but acquired separately, a sickle mower, plow, disk, cultivator, and hauling cart.

Thanks BBT.

I can't load new pictures to my computor - only pics I have are old.  I will say the cart has a very standard looking sleeve hitch, not the Bolens Quick Hitch like the plow has.  The cart is genuine Bolens with brakes for a walk behind but didn't come from a Versa-Matic.  Since that pic was taken several years ago I took the blade off and put the dirt plow on.  it takes up less room in the shed that way.

 

Those that know,  would the cart for the Versa-Matic have the same quick hitch as other implements such as the plow?

Can anyone get the pics and measurments for BBT?

 

Sorry I can't be more help.

I am guessing that the trailer uses the same hitch as the sulky. The part on the trailer tongue would look to be similar to a sleeve hitch. The part that goes on the walk behind is set up to swivel so the trailer can go over uneven ground independent of the tractor. I have included a picture of the hitch I am talking about mounted to a Bolens Power Ho. Note that it is an axle mounted in a bracket.

That seems to be a common part to be missing. Mine is also missing it. Hopefully someone will post pics with dimensions.

The flat stock on the sides of the tougne is 1/8" thick. 6" across the bottom. 4" up the front and 1 1/4" at the back. The hitch (where the pin goes through) is 5/16" thick. The hole for the pin is 1 1/4" from the inside of where the bend starts. Hole is 11/16" dia. The length of the hitch towards the front is 1 7/8". The height of the hitch I'm not positive on. Someone has been playing around with it and it isn't original anymore. But I'm thinking it should be 4 7/8" tall, outside measurement. The hitch I have on a couple tractors in 5" inside so I'd think there should be some room for movement. The bolts are 4 1/2" center to center.

Any more questions I'll try and answer them.

i'll slip one in here before bed, but its not official until tomorrow. This is a 1946 Page tractor, I believe it to be the first model of them, having the spoke wheel, instead of the solid one. No hood on the first yr one, but there might have been another model that yr were you could have gotten one, and an optional single headlite. If I remember right its power by an AHEN engine of 4.3 hp. Just thought I had to have it, restored it and never have started it up since, that was 15yrs ago.
