I have been in talks with the owner of these 2 tractors for over a year. Dick did a great job restoring the JB1. He bought it new in September of 1970. My good friend Jack went with me to pick them up this morning. It was supposed to be cold and sunny. We had overcast and light snow fall instead. 1d82885ca6c8054ccb50bf84b19764fa.jpg65b162525cba7b29ed569e0d61f61843.jpg6e3d319b6f685072a479fec11ffeabdf.jpg911672278cecdfb1f894aee415ec7e11.jpg

With the JB1 came the dump cart and snow plow that was in the original package he bought in 19707fbd6e5163c596c885883cb5fba811af.jpg683c72ebfda47b238fa999aebcc98ecf.jpg

Scott, are those trailer tires OE?   Never seen one with those wheels and tires like that one has.  That makes 2 trailers for you correct?

Daniel I had to look back at an old Craigslist ad from up in Mass a year ago to confirm that this tire and rim set up is correct. He said it came that way. I am up to 4, but 1 is part of a swap deal I am working on, so I will have 3. All three have different tire,rim or hub setups and from what I can tell all are factory. I think they were using what ever they had on the shelf at the time. Both 12" rim trailers were sold with a JB tractor, but different tires were used. 0ec3890fa164b46296650661e3983c18.jpg

Good going and please post more pictures. :)

Got them off the trailer and into the shed. Kind of liking the exhaust set up even though it's not factory. f654cd14e65f7f17b64521a6838e7dfa.jpg
