Is this tractor homebuilt or factory made? Does anyone have any old literature on them?
Neat tractor I'm thinking it homebuilt but who knows??image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

neat looking, but yes its a home shop product. If you look along the block on the left side, near where the cylinder meet the block you should find a number stamp into it. that will tell you what yr walk behind it started out to be.

I have heard of another one. And the owner described it very similar.
Might be a conversion.

That is a very nice converted tractor.   Someone put a lot of thought into building it.

 

These two wheel walk behind tractors have a 2 speed forward and 1 reverse transmission and individual band breaks on each wheel  and were very susceptible to being converted to riding tractors.

I have one that someone made into a rider with the steering wheels in the back.

Here are some photos that I've gotten off the internet of other converted Standard Twin tractors.

Sorry to revive the thread, but how much torque does one of those little engines have?

I found time to leaf through some vintage magazines today and there are ads for a few tractors I have not seen on GTTALK after doing a search. Unfortunately the ad offers no pictures. As well there were numerous ads for lawn mower kits as well as kits to power your reel lawnmower.  I know many car and truck manufacturers are defunct,,,possibly just as many tractor companies.

2 obscure companies I did find here on the site are Standard Garden and Small Farm Tractor and Shaw Du-All. Appears  Shaw Du-All and Peppy Pal were the same manufacturer

No mention on site of the makes below

 

Peppy Pal Tractors 5 to 12 horse

built in Galeburg Ks and Columbus O.

 

Dandy Boy Garden Tractor

built by The Midland Company

Milwaukee Wi.

 

Kinkade Garden Tractor

Actually, all three have been mentioned on the site. The Peppy Pal line was made by Shaw Manufacturing and ws basically a model name. The Midland tractors are listed here in several places. they were a major supplier to Montgomery Wards are more often found under the Wards name. The Kinkade was built by American Farm Machinery and was a division of Standard Engine co. There is an extensive history in the walk beind forum on it as a sticky.
