Wow, that's a looker. Love that shade of green. Nice that it went to a good home, where it's fully appreciated :thumbs:

Love your 600, great story. Can't imagine anyone wanting to scrap that little gem. Glad for the happy ending  :thumbs:

Only two deductions are possible on this tractor,(1) even though it is all original the side aprons have been removed (for obvious reasons),(2)This tractor is why I haunt this place. This is a 1937 1hp. M/W hoe-trac and is generation 1 simplicity,I have yet to see another early blue version with original paint (including plow-trac),The riverside's might even be worth half a credit In deductions lol,P.O. said he thought his dad bought it new and remembered his dad using it far back as he could remember,he said he ran it also but at 78 yrs old would not run it again,it will go with me to escanaba this year(some serious walk behinds up their)and spend the rest of its life doing paraids and joy rides,the solid cast brass governor throw arm is something I haven't seen before

 

That is a cool machine. Love the castings. Ornate. Heavy. Surprised for it's age it doesn't have a brass tag. I have a pair of those same tread tires and rims off an old otherwise destroyed Eschelmann w/b........waiting to use them on something.

 

On a side note..................I would love spend some time in your boneyard. Very cool :thumbs:
