Until this past week, I had only thought this model existed in literature. This was Red E's first rider based off of their walk behind tractor rear ends. It was marketed in 1950/1951 just prior to them rebadging Economy tractors.

Has anyone seen another one by chance?

Thanks, Rob

I've never seen a Red E walker with that hood. The hood, and rear wheels look more like the Page walkers. Do the front wheels say Red E or Page. They look the same as the Page rear engine rider. The engine and clutch does too. Do you have the rest of the drive train?

Hi Doug,

The rear end is much different than my Page walker but identical to my Red E 11B manufactured the same year. The hood however is very similar to the hoods used on Page walk behind tractors.

The front tires are solid and very similar to those used on the rear engine Page however I haven't noticed a name on the wheels.

I do have the rest of the drivetrain which was taken apart but all there. The clutch housing looks very similar to those on later Red E riders.

Thanks, Rob
