Hmmm, if that's the one in upper left picture, does NOT look so Epco on that one. Twin Wisconsin, steering box way out front, the front wheels don't bolt on or look right. Can't see driveline enuf to see if same.  There was a time when Epco was dropped and others or themselves made the Red E line.  I would need more pictures of details to make sound opinion.

Hi gl, I know nothing of the Red E tractors but I think your right EPCO only built them for a time and that's the only pictures available, maybe one one repowered it with a twin Wis.?

Hi Guys,


That Red E P15 tractor on auction was built post-EPCO. Red E re-branded EPCO tractors from mid 1951 through 1957 and then until about 1966 the best that I can tell, Page and Red E riding tractors were one of the same and actually manufactured out of the Richfield, WI Red E facility; just branded differently dependent of the marketing channel used. (similar to Economy vs early Country Squire)


From 1958 through the mid '60's Page/Red E offered (4) models. This one is a P15 which is powered by a Briggs 23FB engine. 


Hopefully that sheds a little light on this one.


Thanks, Rob
