for a couple years now I have been reaching out trying to gather as many serial numbers for these tractors and so far managed to get almost 2 dozen. Please if you know of any or own one we would like to here from you. we are trying to figure out how many were made and to see how many are still around. as of now I estimate per the serial numbers around 2200+/- were produced. thanks!

I am not 100% convinced on that tag, it's either an early odd ball tag or it was missing and someone slapped a rototiler tag on it. I never seen that tag on a mark 1 pc before. who knows? that's why I have this post. come on folks keep posting more serial numbers!!

It was on the cross member that holds the hood at the steering wheel. I will bet a steak dinner it's the correct tag. Tag says porter cable on the lower section.

Well that should spark some controversy, I did not know rototiller was a sub of PC maybe they built the first ones before Dura corp. took over hmm.
