I am proud to announce the recent arrival of a new 1948 beaver tractor built in Stratford Ct. Serial number 46. I believe to the best of my knowledge this is the 4th oldest beaver tractor known in existence. It has original paint, tires, 3hp motor, land plow, etc... Thank you to George Kennedy for selling it. (Who has about 50 beaver tractors in his collection)

I waited about 9 months to seal the deal. I couldn't be happier.

Congradulations! I really like the old garden tractors from the 40's and 50's. I had a chance to look over two Baird Beavers when I was picking up a tractor in CT. They are very well built tractors and interesting to look at.

Great looking tractor!   :thumbs: . One of these days I am going to build a homemade with Tiller Steering and a hydro rear end. I will be referring to your pics for ideas. Thanks.
