Three day's ago I was ready to trade one of my Gemco tractors for a Moto Mower type 300B, when a PM hit the screen and my new friend jabelman informed of a Porter - cable on cl in NJ. I did not hesitate I called the owner and bought it yesterday. I'm told it is a 1958 or 59 here are a few pics, check out the wheel weights.IMG_1237.JPG IMG_1238.JPG IMG_1239.JPG Thanks Jason

Nice looking tractor for its age.  Good way to recycle the bar bar weights.  Lot of times they threw out behind the shed and forgot about.

This same company that made power tools?? Just what was there idea of getting into tractors?  Later bought by Rockwell, probly dropped tractors then?? I've never seen one in person. Where were they made?  Seems like good strong hardware used and nice big tires, something older tractors seem to lack when not name-brands. It is nice looker, not all beat and rusty.

Same as power tools. Made in 58-59 I'm told, bought by MOTO MOWER made in Syracuse NY.

Hank, is the seat missing? I have an extra. Can you take a pic of the dash area, specifically the throttle please.
