I picked up this walk behind at an auction last wed.It actually belonged to my brothers neighbor.He went into a home and they were selling off his stuff.I'm thinking he had it since new but not pos.He took pretty good care of his stuff.I don't own any walk behinds but I thought it was too cheap to pass up.I'm not really sure what this one is because I never researched any walk behinds before.I got this whole set-up for $100.The implements look like simplicity.There is a decal on handle but a lot is missing the first word starts with p,and of course the serial and model number are gone also.I'd like to know what this is so I can track down some manuals,and info on this unit.The engine numbers and everything on that are in good shape.It is a mongomery wards engine.

Made by Midland for Wards.   Power Trac is likely what it said with that big Wisconsin engine.  Could also have been a Plow-Trac. 

Simplicity attachments will work just the same.  

 

very kewell tires!!!!     Great find!

good job on getting yourself an affordable walk-behind as your first one. loks like you have a plow, disc and buzz saw. Maybe parts of a vator, and a good front dozer blade. For the price you paid, even if it don't run its a bargin. Oh I almost forgot the weights,,, bonus!!

I love those tires, too.  You don't see that pattern very much.  I love old tires.

 

I think you did great on that purchase.  That tractor ought to be a horse with that Wisconsin on board.

I'll have to check today. I want to try and start it and figure out how to use it.
