Welcome to the forum. I can't get the pics to open and they all look alike. The Economy used a Borg Warner T92 trans that was primarily used in the Crosley. Several garden tractor manufacturers used them. I'm goin to throw out a couple gueses of a moto-mower or Lambert. Some differrent angles of pictures might help too.

Hello there and welcome! Try and get us some better pictures if possible. May look like a lambert since they had round fenders

Yep! Too dark, won't enlarge for me either.  Speedex used that trans alot too, but don't think tin is right for them. Turn the light on when taking a pix, ha!  What's the black frame around those about? looks like negatives from film that way.

I have no idea, but looks tough and well made. Is that a tool box under the seat?

And what is going on with the dual gas tank caps? One for Super and one for regular?

Welcome to GTT. That is an interesting tractor. The only time I saw a gas tank like that was a dual fuel engine. It started on gas but switched to kerosene because many years ago kerosene was cheaper than gas. Good Luck, Rick

Yeah, Like I said. It's well built and looks neat.  I don't really think it's homemade but I suppose it could be.  As far as the fuel tank, your guess is as good as mine until I get the tractor and really get to check it out.  I have a 30's McCormick Deering 10-20 that starts on gas and once warmed up switches over to kerosene.  Also have a 43 JD A all fuel and a 41 B all fuel that starts on gasand switches to kero.  That would be neat to have a little Briggs engine that runs on kero, but not likely.

It is a USF(United Steel Fabricators) made in Wooster Ohio. Go to www.tractorshed.com and in left hand column under galleries, click on tractor photos. Enter USF into search engine and you will see an image of your tractor with decals still intact.
