The tractor and attachment are both foreign to me. Can you guys give me your opinion on what model the tractor is and what the attachment with the wooden box is?

There is a chain in the one pic that looks like it's driving something in there...?

That chain drives the wheels of the tractor.

Alan, I'm glad you are getting some help with your mystery tractor. Hopefully somebody adjusts the pictures before I need to see a chiropractor. I'm getting older and not nearly as flexible as I used to be. Good luck with your Plow Day and sure am sorry to miss it this year.

Looks like the tank says Bolens Huski from here, so it's a Bolens Huski Gardner. Most likely that Wisconsin engine is a model AB with 6:1 gear reduction.

You would have to get the serial number off of the engine and look it up on the Wisconsin serial number date websight. I think mine is from '49 and looks similar to that one.

I'll tell you what it is lol " A Shame" "sad" i could go on forever but, i think its a home-brew attachment, looks like part of an original cultivator in there and agree with the box for weight considering the way its sitting. anyways looks like a keeper to me
