Nice catch GardnMastr :thumbs:   neat to see how these tractors were made for doing gardening type work . Was the  Panzer with single wheels an option , thinking like a farm tractor would have options like that

Are there any other Garden tractors that had a narrow or single front?


How about a narrow rear?

It looks like it is a Jeep rear end and wheels in the Farm Imp.

The DB tri-track and Bolens ride master would also kind of fit into that category.

I forgot about the Quaker Mule. Supposedly, they made about as many of those as  they did the farm imp

Let's talk variations. Hiller was sold through Sears also. Bantams were made in 4 models ( two had 5hp. ). Standard Bantams came in 3 hp. and 5 hp. Deluxe was the large frame with 5hp. and 8 hp. Single front tires were the norm, dual fronts were factory optional. So it would seem you need to buy 7 or 8 more tractors, since you don't have a Quaker Mule.

Thanks for all the responses. I am not too concerned about getting all of the different models of each brand, but I would like to have at least one example of each brand. We do have a Bantam 5000 too. I would like to add a Quaker mule, Chipmunk, Hiller, Pony Jr., Brownie and Wildcat to the collection. I really like the NF tractors with a hood. That should keep me busy for a while!

Do you all think that a Gibson model E would be classified as a Garden tractor?

There was an article on the Mity Mules in LAGT magazine a few years back. They were made by Fimco in Lancaster, PA around 1956. I've seen three and all were yellow, unlike the one on eBay.
