I have just committed to buy what I believe is a Cockshutt Model C walk behind.  It is just a little newer than the Black Hawk A, B, and C line with the older Briggs engine,  This one has the type 14 Briggs engine, but is seized.  A little detail!  Anyone ever seen one before or own one of these newer ones?Cockshutt Model C004.jpg $_59 (3).JPG $_59 (2).JPG $_59.JPG

Other than the newer [model 14] engine..  How would you differentiate between Black Hawk and Cockshutt?

 

I have 2 Black Hawks with older Briggs.  I know one of them is a model "C".  Maybe both are?

 

Welcome to GTT!!  :wave:

I have one with a model 14. The engine has a 4 digit serial number so it must be an early one. Like Kris said, I'm not sure how you would differentiate between a Blackhawk and a Cockshutt. They never used tags. I think they were both sold at the same time. There is a cast boss on the gearbox that they stamped info into. I've also seen them listed as a Co-op.

This is some interesting info to me. I have 3 Cockshutt farm tractors, a 20 Deluxe, a 30 & a 550 diesel. I knew that they produced tractors with the Black Hawk name & made some of the Co-op tractors. I also knew that their early tractors were made by Oliver and rebranded as Cockshutt. I was unaware that they marketed any type of garden tractor.

 

Were these made by Cockshutt or purchased through a different company and rebranded as Cockshutt/Black Hawk? Definitely anxious to hear more about these walk behinds.

all that I know about cockshutt is that they were somehow part of Oliver, and on the bigger 4 wheeled tractors the same tractor painted green here in the US was an Oliver, while it was red and called Cockshutt in canada. I have been to a tractor/thresher show in Indiana the last 2 years where someone took a Cub 129 or 149 and "converted" it to a smaller scale Cockshutt lookalike. I think that GLGrumpy has shown this tractor in one of his pix that he posts every year from this same show.

I have most of the Canadian Cockshutt's made.  20 Deluxe, 35L Deluxe, 40 Deluxe, and 50 Deluxe as well as all the 500 series.  I also have a Cockshutt 70 which was made by Oliver.  The walk behind was made by the Ohio Cultivator Company which Cockshutt bought out.  I have been a Cockshutt and Oliver fan all my life!

You really made me laugh!! A few pictures of the 20 Deluxe.  The Black Hawks were just 56 and only in the US.  They were the first year for the Deluxe line.  Have a great evening!IMG_20140525_144557.jpg IMG_20171118_150002.jpg 10630570_10153633625324914_5651655696776523271_o.jpg

At least one of the 4 walk behinds I have has a Black Hawk decal on the gas tank. I've never seen a co-op or Cockshut decal on one.

As long as we're sharing Cockshutt pics, I thought that I would add a couple of mine.

Wow i guess ypu learn some thing every day. I didnt know chockshutt or back hawk made a walk behind. The only ones you see around here are david bradleys, and every know and then a simplicty or gravely. But in my area of ky they used mules untill the late 40s the frist tractor known in my area was a f20 farmall sometime in the mid 40s.

that is an impressive collection, for me Cockshutt and Oliver are more than reliable hard workers, the style and lines of both are so far ahead of the rest of the pack i see them as art in motion with Oliver being a close second place(and i have a 46 Oliver 70 standard),first thing i thought when i seen your cocksutt W/B was how cool it would look next to my co-op, please post a family pic of the occasion lol
