I got a text from someone who said someone else had given them my number about old garden tractors. Turns out he had a Wards Garden Mark Squire that his grandmother had bought new that he was looking to sell. He had a sickle bar mower,Simplicity moldboard plow,42 inch deck,and 42 inch dozer with the tractor. I almost passed it to someone else because I really wasn't looking for another project right now,but in the end I snagged it. The tractor and attachments all need TLC but everything is solid and in overall good shape.

Briggs model "Y"

As Gtractor said,its a Y model Briggs dated April 1936. It is mostly garage art now. It has been outside a long time,the head is cracked open and engine is locked tight.

The stack will be one of the first things to go. It is too out of proportion to the tractor.

Very nice catch. One warning. Be carefull with that plow. That setup is notorious for cracking the frame where it mounts to the BGB. You will find alot of those tractors are welded infront of the BGB. I have 7 of that frame tractors and atleast 3 of them are welded. I notice that plow has an extra brace welded onto it. Good Luck, Rick

Agree,something that I learned 20 years ago,having been thru several Simplicity built machines. The other big culprit of breaks and cracks at the BGB is tillers.
