I went to this show yesterday.  Not big in the walk behind garden tractor segment, but has a nice sized collection of the four wheeled variety.  I enjoy walking through the consignment sale area almost as much as the show.

It was a Model 2 built in 1954.  It appeared to be the all aluminum Model 8B.  The motor was painted orange just like one that I have.  I should have gotten the engine info and checked when it was made.  It had a front counterweight that I never saw before.  Most likely it went real cheap being not many people collect them and the weather for the auction today was miserable.

Did you see/hear what the Briggs, Kohler and Tecumseh parts went for in the very first row? I had to leave and did not get to see any of the bidding.

No, I did not attend the auction.  I did hear stuff went generally high.

It is amazing to me how many local shops made garden equipment.

I had one of mine at Canandaigua and it got a fair amount of attention, they seem to pop up every now and then.
