to lauber1,
i remember now, it was the 56, The Resurection of the 56 Tractor and if your talking kankakee (bradley) illinois show, then yes i was there once, long drive but worth every seconds, i had a great time. :bounce:

to ALc,
if your talking about the 2 wheel thing then no, it is not for the speedex, that's a 2-wheel planet jr. push plow with no handles, but i did think of mounting it to the back of the speedex a time or two along with the planet jr. drill seeder.:smile1:
push plow,
drill seeder,

Dad just picked up his first Bolens walk behind. Don't know too much information on it yet but it has a Clinton engine on it and I believe it is a Power Ho.

George, That looks like the one we had on the farm when I was a kid. Model 12B right????? I found one about a year ago. Not that pretty now, but someday!

Bolens Power-Ho model no. 12ba ?, with a 2hp clinton model b engine, mabey model no. b700's, still has the 5 lug car rims, what a great looking tractor, one of the earlier ones, looks like brand new straight from the factory.

Well if you was growing truck crops it would look like a celery hiller. But i know you boys out east just grow rocks, so it couldnt be that.

naw, celery don't grow very good here, carrots too,
it's a mule drawn, garden tractor drawn ditcher/grader, it can be flipped to dig a right or left furrow/ditch, 1/2 size copy of this:

For those who want to know why you would hill celery..........its to blanch it out to the whiteish color you see. Dirt is ussally used to do this but paper tubes and boards are also applied A similar thing in done to culiflower by wrapping the leaves up over the head.

Well i wish i had picture of all the ones i've ever owned, like my 29 Red-E, my ridermaster, several differnt models of Wards tractors *(both Midland and Simplicity) and the 50 or so attachments including a table saw. I never bothered to photo much of the tractors i got in the 80's and early 90's. At one time there was a Davenport, a Beeman, Standards, Walsh, Jari, Utilitor, many Bolens, and some tractors that i really never did figure out what they start out as. i used to buy up every attachment i could find at auction. All were 2 wheeled walkers, and at one time you could find a pickup for $100 and still have a little room left. Those days are pretty much history, much like the tractors.

i understand, i did not start taking pictures untill a few years ago, i did not get a camera i could hook up to the computer untill last year, i did not have a computer untill 3 years ago, as a teenager i made and experimented with a lot of things, never took picturs of them, had a lot more stuff too,
a lot of things i had i grabbed for cheap on the way to the scrapper, sold most of it when i moved to MA.
