Hi Guys,

 

I'm interested in learning about the D4 model tractors and can't seem to find a whole lot online. Does anyone happen to have literature or info that could either be posted or emailed me by chance?

 

I'm excited to learn about these little guys. 

 

Thanks! Rob

I did but didn't see anything. Maybe there is and I missed it?

Google D4 Letourneau Tournapull.

 

Neat machine, but not the little Speedex D4 garden tractor I'm looking for information about.

Go to the www.speedextractorinformation.com site?  Hard to navigate, but should be pictures from old shows at least, maybe brochure?  Not sure I've seen much for material on those early units. Maybe wasn't much, more like hand sketches, seeing as how this company ran, heh!  Pretty sure in shows from past in pictures is some of those and maybe a name with them to ask about them. There is a forum for posting there, again a little hard to get to, just click on stuff on home page.

Did you see the post in GTtalk 09/16/13 by ....grnlark SENIOR MEMBER #2691. Well written on the subject of the D4 with pics. Very little literature exists today. He may have lit & might share. D4 was a early model but not the first as it has the bull gear & small engine. The early ones had Ford rad, eng. trans, rear end (even seen one with Whippet rad, eng, trans & rear end). A engineering back alley marvel (and it worked!) was Ponds first attempt after Henry Ford called & told him STOP using my FORD parts! SO Just simple cut, drill & bolt technology = D4 - Made in America.
