I believe this is a Model D.  Am I correct?  If so,  what attachment is currently on it?  Looks just like a stand.

 

Thank you!

That is defiantly a model D. The attachment on the back is homemade, looks like maybe some kind of sod cutter?

Looks like a B to me, more pics will help, ser. No.s off engine and gear case (behind wheel) will correctly date it, just looking I'm thinking 43-47, i think the D is 48-49 with multiple speeds, the tool bar looks to be later, the tool guide looks correct, agree with sod cutter

With out the later attachment mounts this tool bar would be correct, pic is of a 47, at least 6 brands ran interchangeable like attachments in this line (not counting export), the 43 would have been styled so I'm at 44-47 for year made with out no's

Here is a look at the numbers I could easily find.  What do they mean?

Top two are, type (left) ser no. (Right), bottom two are valve clearance, intake and exhaust, look for 1 1/2 hp. Briggs and Stratton ser. No's between 44-47 (the B&S site for this is a quick hit), this also could be the ward's version (Hoe-Trac) 44-46, ward's had their own tag and no's on engine's it used, the ser. no on gear case was shared by Simplicity and wards. Had to edit cus i messed up the top no's (corrected), the model no. is missing but should be a N, ser.no. indicate's Dec. 45 which makes your tractor a 46, the I.D plate is screwed on which leads me to believe it's a Hoe-Trac

Are the tires for this machine still available anywhere?  I'm guessing that is unlikely.  They are Wards Riverside Power Grip 4.00-12 tires.
