[quote name='Lauber1']Ok , I'll nominate my 1937 Sears Handiman. This tractor its self is one of my favorites, and carrys the following attachments on board at all times. 1) front counter weight..2) Triple wide steel wheels..3) a drag harrow on its tool bar..4) a riding sulky. The tractor weighs 1065# and is powered by a model K Briggs. It has both a forward clutch and a reverse clutch lever, along with in054.jpg a few bent tool bar hangers and rods.

I've owned it for 12yrs, bought it as a pile , at a local auction, fired it up and drove it up on to the051.jpg

We made a video of it also. This is the first one we did outside, and go figure the tractor didnt want to start, after going first pull in the shed sitting a yr.

I would but everyone has seen a Simplicity 738 and it's nothing special so why waste space ?

Ron

Come on I have 4 738's and love to see other peoples. I try not to restore them, because I like the "used" look

Just to let everyone know, any tractor, it doesn't matter the brand or model is something worth posting here. We are all about all colors and brands.

If the weather cooperates I'll post some pics in the morning unless it's closed by then, if for no other reason than some said they have never seen a Simplicity 738.

Ron,
If you want to post your nomination today and then add the pics tomorrow that is fine. Would like to close the nominations later tonight and then I can start the voting thread tomorrow night. When you add the pics just edit your post to add them to it then.

Oh - they do talk . Sometimes you have to know what the original " language " was compared to what you think your looking for. Sparky
