Yes, it is a counter weight (~35lbs).  It was used with the rear attaching implements such as the dirt plow, cultivator, etc.  From what I have seen, the cultivator & counter weight were the most common implement sold with their tractors.

My turn!

Today i post my 1936 Standard Twin.  I'm not that "up" on these but I believe governors and turning brakes came out the next year in '37 so this one is a bit of a chore to operate.  Two speeds forward and a powered reverse make it manageable.  It plows exceptionally well. Bought this one at auction in October of 2003 with the cultivator and I purchased the plow and disk separately that day.  There were six Twins offered that day but I could only purchase one and this was the only one with rim extensions so it followed me home.

ok I like the Standard twin, so post another one early for tomorrow, so don't read this until Friday, lol. This ones a 48 with a sulky, has all the bells and whistles, turning brakes,  governor, rubber tires. Never have gotten it done after all these yrs, but it runs good, and the foot steering on the sulky works great. They called this walk-behind/rider setup a convertible.  Lot easier said than done, as the sulky don't just unbolt, you have to remove some braces and stuff to get it off.

ok going in a different direction. This is a Laffy tractor from France. Looks like a workout to me, but maybe its as easy to drive as my Handiman. Not any details on this machine, but considering the county went though 2 world wars, I'd say they were lucky to have any tractors from the 30's survive. This picture(s) were sent to me by a guy name tony who lives in Belgium, and this is what he collects over there.

real nice, I have a 34 but it needs about everything rebuilt on it, so I haven't done much with it.

Here is my 1948 Montgomery wards walk behind. Its all original and I have the original snow blade for it. This came from a show over in ohio. Took it apart and put in the back of my moms ford excursion. She wasn't to impressed or happy. It was one of those deals you just cant pass up. Had to buy a crescent wrench and a screw driver. Still have it. Its on the project list. I love the tire equipment and the weights.

I really like these plain jane complete and original tractors. Usually  they don't go for much, are easy to repair mostly, and you can have hour of fun playing with them.  Knobbie tires rock!!

Just a common ole Bradley today.  If you look close you can still see "Super Power" on the hood.  Got this one from a neighbor when his wife made him clean up the yard.

I'd have gotten rid of the wife instead.
