Looks like that one has had a few modifications. I think the cleats are from a model D Gravely.

don't think ive ever seen a Shaw with a riding sulky like that. Like to see some more pictures of it outside and at different angle, so you can see how all the parts work out on it.

The way you see it was the way it was purchased. There are several modifications to it. It is posible that the lugs are gravely, I am not sure they are original. It also came with cultivators, discs, extension rims, & a very interesting harrow. I will not be able to get it outside until spring. The sulky is a home built gadget. It is mounted rigidly to the frame. The rear wheels are just swivel casters, probably of an old hay rake. Steering is done with the individual wheel brakes.

nice looking HQ I have one myself. Does yours have the brass ID tag still on it? Is the air cleaner you have the bee-hive style?

The tag was missing when I got this , something that has always puzzled me why did people remove tags? I have several garden tractors that are missing the tag  , I find it unlikely they fell off.  Yes it is the bee-hive Bolens tagged one  rough condition

Find us about a half a dozen. :D   I'm sure there is more than 1 guy here that would like that to happen. We aren't allowed to use the term "rare" here, but.......

Ill throw one up today. Here is my smallest bolens walk behind. Its a power ho. Runs great. The first bolens walk behind I got. Came with cultivators. Does run pretty good. Smokes alittle but not to bad. Part of the reason I bought it (as stupid as it may be) was the original check mark tires.

Well, it is 10 am and no one else has posted, so here is another Waterloo.  This is a Model 30 that I bought because it had the logo intact.  When I got it, it had a cracked piston, but that has been replaced.  

 

The 30 had a clutch system that rotated the gearbox to tension the drive belt.  It works okay, but when you pull the tractor backwards, the gearbox rotates & the belt tightens, making it nearly impossible to go backwards.  Might be why the switched to the idler pulley tension system on the Model 40.

Very nice Power Ho Deluxe! I like those treads too.

Very nice !  I see you have a what I believe is a counter weight on the front ? Is that being used because of how HD the cultivator is ?
