Hi Guys,


A friend of mine was at an estate auction last week. Knowing that I'm into weird stuff, he called me asking if I'd be interested in an old walk behind tractor that was there. After he sent me a couple pictures, I said I have absolutely no idea as to what it is, but it looks neat and would love to have it if the price is right....so now I have to run down one of these days and pick it up from my friend's place.


Below are the pictures he sent me....from what I can tell by doing a quick Google search, it was manufactured by Coleby Cultivator LTD located in Swanely, a town south east of London, in Kent County, England and is powered by a small 2-stroke engine. About all I could find, was reading a tractor forum in the UK and they seem to be pretty uncommon even over there. I'd love to know how/why it made it over here across the pond..


Has anyone seen one or know anything about these tractors? I'll take some better pictures when I get it home. 


Any input/education is appreciated! Thanks, Rob

That's different! Should be a good conversation starter.

Looks like it should get good traction! :bigrofl:

Looks to be in good condition.

Hi Guys,


Thanks for the comments! I don't know anything about it, except it just looked too cool to pass up. 


I'm not sure what size 2 stroke engine it has yet but hopefully will learn more about it when I get a chance to pick it up in the next week or so. 


Thanks, Rob
