Very neat. What runs the PTO for the tiller? Does it just run when the drive is going?

Great to hear from another Wards/Midland tractor owner!!!! Do you plan on doing any sort of restoration soon?

I found one of these tractors and thought I'd throw out a couple of pics. Unfortunately it was not for sale. :(

I also have one of these tractors and I think the other 2 posters are the same ones I have found with one also. First ran across them on Mytractorforum.com... So it looks like there are the same amount of people that have one of these. Mine was painted red, doesn't have a mower, but does have a snow blade! As soon as it warms up Im going to snap some better pics and begin the tear down. The engine has compression so hopefully that is a good sign. It doesn't seem to have foot rests anymore but who knows if any are to be found anywere.  The steering wheel spins freely so that is an issue also but other than that everything seems to be OK. It comes with Dual diamond tread tires on the rear that miraculously still hold air!

 

More updates to follow in the future

MJT, First off Welcome to GTtalk. That is a very cool tractor you have and I would love to have one to go with the rest of my M/W tractors.

I found a Midland track...maybe...  1960 IT Red Book has a Midland ad..  in fine print it says "Division of Outboard Marine Corp"  Since omc lost Wards Sea King in 62-63 Midland probably got swallowed by Gale Products.  Gale is listing a omc 2-stroke tiller in 1965 red book like the one sold by Midland in 1960
