16209.attachThis is a Page(Page dairy and farm equipment,before it was added to Red-E line) that i found in a truck selling mag. It lived in WI before coming here. Drove up one Sunday with my brother and son to get it. The engine is a enh wisconson that is direct coupled to the front of the tranny, which uses a left and right hand clutch to engage the wheels. This tractor is a 46 and must have been an early one as the castings in the final drives as full of air pockets and defects. For some reason the finals are cast alum and tranny cast iron. It has the spoked wheel that seem to only be found on the first yr model. I got a tool bar and some duck feet as attachments. After restoring it, i've never started the tractor or used it.
I'm getting in rather late on this one but, I have a Page (Dairy and Farm Equipment ) walking tractor as well.
My tractor has a Wisconsin AB engine that is set up the same as yours with the left and right clutches, the same "tool bar" attachment bar at the rear and a flat belt accesory pully on the PTO shaft between the engine and clutch assembly.
My depth wheels are set up the same as yours but are made with an aluminum spoked hub and hard rubber tires instead of the rolled steel wheels you have.
The only tillage tools my tractor came with are four tool shanks each with a much used two inch wide digger tooth mounted to the end.
I have since replaced the teeth but find the tractor really doesn't have the ground speed needed to make this type of tool work the way it was designed to.
I have never seen the origonal tillage tools for this tractor but I do know the teeth that were on it when I got it came from the local Fleet Farm and were intended for a much bigger unit with many of these narrow shanks moving at (relitivly) high speed across the ground.
This year I got serious with it and replaced the narrow teeth with some 8 inch wide sweeps that have a very low approch angle to the ground.
These tools enter the ground almost flat and have a minimal amount of surface area to stick to the soil.
They work GREAT !!
The tractor moves at a moderate walking pace and really comes into its own on a long straight row of something in need of cultivating.
When the plants are small I can remove the center tool and mount a right and left sided sweep with some plant sheilds and go right over the top of the row.
With the positive two wheel drive the tractor runs as straight and true as you would want and still gives quick power turns by disengaging one final drive clutch or the other.
The draw bar pivots from a little forward the center of the final drives about 15 deg either way (or can be locked riged to the frame with a pull pin) and allows for easy following of the rows.
I have never seen any other attachments for this tractor but, I pull a single gang Brinly-Hardy disk with mine and a home made ridged mounted spring tooth rake similer to a lawn thatching rake but, used to level the garden.
I mention in another thread that I just picked up a Sears 7" mold board plow that is supposed to be three point mounted but, I'm going to fit it to my Page with a tool bar adapter and a pivoting depth wheel that will also lower and raise the plow.
One thing I have to say about my Page tractor is that it is very well made.
I suspect that the unit you have was made later rather than earlier.
While we bothe have a Wisconsin engine, mine appears to be an older model than yours and my final drive levers are made from cast steel rather than the pieces of bent flat stock on yours (I have seen that on one other Page tractor that I have since lost track of) my final drives are also made from cast iron and are of very high quality and I don't understand why they would make them from aluminum. If anything, I would like to see the tractor get a bit heavier and I plan to add some wheel whieghts to mine for next year.
I shure wish there was more information about this excelant tractor but, I have only ever seen a couple of pictures on the web and some manufacturing info on Mytractorforum.
