Should be in a rider section, but it's built from a walk-behind. Here's a video of it,

I'm missing the rear half that has the seat, steering wheel and wheels.

This is the M-50A made for Wards by Midland. There is a copy of the parts manual and assembly manual in the GTT archives. Several other folks on the list have recently acquired Wards and Midland walk-behinds. Keep us up to date on your progress....and PLEASE post pics!!!! Dale

They are neat machines. Years ago I used mine to put in my driveway. Yours is a little older than mine.

You can get a handlebar kit for it, although it's very rare, and use it as a walkbehind instead of a rider. The lever in front of the shifter, is a safety catch to keep the transmission from jumping out of gear when riding downhill. The small belt/pulley system is indeed a brake. Nice tractor.

:wave: twowheeler63 Welcome to GTTalk! We're glad to have you with us and thanks for getting involved! We have a member of our local club who has a nice collection of David Bradleys! He has a sulky setup that he took on our tractor tour a couple of years ago. Neat, and very capable machines!
