My Hoe-Trac gallery is a mess so instead of giving these tractors a place in a folder I'm giving them a home on here lol, these tractors don't fit in my 37-47 thread past the X1's that dragged me here but are Simplicity to varying degrees in models D,E,F,G,H and R, this is only a start and i have much to learn so this thread will go on the back burner after a couple posts, the 48 3hp. Plow-Trac (1) becomes the 4.5hp. F in 49 (2) and will run at least to 50, the E (2-3) comes out in 49 and is based on Simplicity's new for 49 M (4)(L in pic,M same), both these tractors carry the wards handlebar mount's and Simplicity's Quick-Hitch, at present this combination appears to be unique to the 49-50 tractors.

The Simplicity D appears to be the first Waterbury badged tractor in these and is simply the model D Waterbury, I'll find better pics of this tractor later when i come back to these tractors, i have enough in pics (1-3) to make the identification, the Waterbury D advertised in pics (1-2) is a spring offering and predates the owner-parts manual (3)(Gwest) for the L/M platform seen in the 49 model E, the X1 platform from the Plow-Trac is ready for the F but not seen so far until the introduction of the E (4), i believe this holdup is just logistics involving the B&S model 9 order, Wards has just pulled the rug out from under waterbury and Simplicity and given it's garden tractor contract to Midland, and Waterbury and Simplicity are picking up the pieces, the D on the outherhand is ready to go.

Waterbury D,G. Waterbury gets it's own platform in 51 pics(1,2)(new forward hitch examples), the 51 D in pics(3,4) will get a model designation change in 52 (5-9)and is now the G, same tractor different model, all Waterbury models (except the R) will do this, because model designation's are different for like tractors and like model designation's are on different tractors there will be early and late model designation's, platform and component identification is needed at this point and will be next.

Waterbury F. I'm moving the F as coming out between the D and the E, examples below (1-4) show two models only, the E is based on the new Simplicity L/M platform and if Waterbury had it at the time of these ad's it would have been included, the pic (5) of the Waterbury D shows it has "T" control handle's, only the Simplicity D (6) has two "T" control handle's with this placement, pic (7) are B handle's and for placement comparison only.

The Waterbury platform. because all early things Waterbury go to this platform and all later things Waterbury come from this platform I'm starting in the middle, the Waterbury platform uses a sliding engine type engagement, the floating engagement gear case seen in the D (3,4) (L/M same) is modified for stationary application (1,2,5) on the Waterbury platform, Simplicity has already done this type of conversion (in reverse) when it took the B gear case and turned it into a floating engagement type for the X line, need to correct the holdup on the F as a B&S 14, i have another tractor in my head in this time frame waiting for a 9 and fell victim to correlation (that sounds better than CRS lol).
