Hi Everyone,

My main area of interest in collecting garden tractors are the lesser known Page and Red E tractors that were built only a few miles from where we live in Richfield, Wisconsin. Much of what I enjoy about them is the very local history and the lack of documentation. I enjoy the research and documenting what I find in hopes of helping others and getting others interested and as a result, more of these tractors being discovered and preserved. 

For the last few years, a project of mine has been a serial number registry in hopes of figuring more production related information out such as production numbers and when certain changes were made in production. If anyone has a Page or Red E either rider or walker with an ID tag, I'd love to add it to the evolving registry! 

I'm happy to answer any questions to the best of my knowledge. Attached are a few pictures of our Page and Red E tractors in our collection.

Thanks, Rob

I have original RED  E 4 wheel tractor literature. I considered loading it on here. Unsure if sales literature belongs in manuals or not or if there's a different category. Maybe manuals (for how to repair or parts breakdowns) should be separate from sales lit. Maybe we need a tab up by the forum tab for sales literature? What say the moderators?

I'd certainly love to see what Red E literature it is that you have in case it's something I don't have in my archive yet.

In the riding tractors, we have the brochures in with the manuals. I'd say go ahead and post them there.

Thanks! 

 

To be honest, I haven't seen more than  2 or 3 at any one time anywhere else either which is why I like to post pictures and info in effort of making others aware and hoping more of them come out of the woodwork. It's all part of the fun. 

 

I see you're in Wisconsin...if you ever make it to the Hartford area, I'd invite you to see the collection in person anytime.

Nice collection you have there! Love to see them up close, the history is always fun to learn about.I always like to see the progression of engineering that goes into a line, also the integration of outside influence is always interesting to examine.

If there is a Brochures section, then post sales literature there. If not, in with the tractors, just title it so folks know it's not a manual.

I'll tease you with these front shots of the sales literature that I have. You'll have to wait a day or two for the complete things.IMG_0148.JPG IMG_0153.JPG

Great brochures there! I have all of those as well but they are tough to find; great set!

It'd be great to add them to the forum achieve whenever you have the chance to scan them.
