Welcome to the forum. I see some parts of a Shaw in there. Looks like its been highly modifed. Can you get some closer pictures at different angles? Is the gearbox cast iron or aluminum?

That is a model H3 which came out around 1940 and was discontinued during the war.  It used a 3 HP Model B Briggs.  It was designed to have 24" plant clearance when cultivating.  It had one speed forward which could be varied with a manually adjusted sheave on the engine.  It had no reverse, but had a unique power turn system where you pulled back on either the right or left control handle and you lifted the driven bull gear out of mesh with the drive gear.  This is the only Shaw that used an angle iron frame. Design is very similar to a Peppy Pal and uses a Peppy Pal design cutter bar, but rear attachments are the same as the D-series.  The engine

pivots to loosen or tighten the drive belt for the clutch and the tractor uses 5.50 X 16 tires.  I have two in my unrestored project shed.

Here are some more views of the Shaw Walk Behind ....I do not believe,that it has been modified   the gearbox is cast iron                  I would like to know what model this is & if it might be rare. What would it be worth for parts? Thank you!

That looks like a transitional model, some where between the d series and the H5. I wouldn't mind having one like that in my barn!
