Hello! Nice picture. I have never seen this tractor before. That tractor is an Indianapolis built "J" or " Big J". They were always red with white trim. They did have an optional belly mower. I have one of these with a mower deck. The deck is more basic two bladed, I think. Someone did a nice job of installing that deck, it is not original. Good find with the camera, you've got your eyes trained.

I am an author. I am in print. Some of my efforts have bore fruit. It feels kinda different. I gotta get back to work on the whole thing. Mr. moderator, if this is not allowed, feel free to delete it, thanks.IMG_0261.JPG IMG_0262.JPG

Fame at last! I'll have to get that issue and have you sign it. I look forward to reading it.

I for one would love to read this book! I'm really intrigued by the Garden-All (or Gard'n Mast'r?) riding tractors but haven't owned one besides a GB model years ago, nor know much about them. 

 

The smaller J series tractors really intrigue me. Were there 3 models; JE, JS and JR? What are the differences between the models?

 

Thanks, Rob

A friend sent me this pic and it shows the Big J, so I figured that I would add it to this thread. Congrats on the article GardnMastr!

There was also a JB model called the Bulldog. Powered by a B&S series 23 engine, 23x12 rear tires. Original color was red, not green. Gary Leemans book should cover it pretty well. I'm not sure if it's in print yet.

The Bulldog is shown in the middle in that pic, Irhredjb. Is that the one you are talking about?

   Yep thats it. When they built my JB they couldnt  find the B stamp I guess so they used 2 P's to make the B. I have a pic of it somewhere on my computer but I can't find it. I will attach a pic of a Gmastr I saw at Zolfo Springs FL a few years ago.
