Hi, I am skiptoothbicyclerider. I have acquired two walk behind garden tractors some years ago and they sit quietly in my garage. One, a 1951 Planet Jr. the other I'm assuming is a Gardenaid which by dating the engine should be 1942-43. It has steel wheels with steel cleats and a Briggs and Stratton NR 6 engine with the power reduction being cast as part of the engine block. The reason I say assuming is that it does not have the wooden peg style lever on the handle, mine has a steel lever. Everything else seems to scream Gardenaid. I am starting to finally get around to working on it but would like to know the colors and layout, what gets painted what color. I know it suppose to be orange and black, but anyone find a good color match for the orange? I have the only one that I have seen with steel wheels, no pictures or anything, zilch. So, not sure how the wheels should be painted. I would appreciate any and all help. If I can get moving on this I'd like to put it in our county fair for others to see. I'll take some pictures and post here when I get it dug out of my garage, it's been sitting some 6+ years. Thank you all in advance for you time and help.

Welcome to GTT
Once you get some pictures I'm sure one of our resident walk behind experts can ID it for you.

Welcome to the forum. My understanding on the Garden-aid and Bready issue was that they were the same basic tractor except for the handle. The Bready used a steel handle where the G-A had the wooden one.
