Does anyone know of, or about, ECONOMY brand tractors ? It was rear engine with belly-slung implements. Possibly during the 60's?

The only Economy tractors I heard of are the Powerking and Jim Dandy with front mount engines. They were built by Engineering Products and are orange. I have one from 1975 with a 14hp Kohler. Earlier ones had Briggs. The following posts will repeat what I just stated here. LOL

I can't say that I have heard of a rear engine Economy.

I may have made an assumption. The tractor is there but I can't make out any markings or decals. Guess I'm going to have to chop some blackberry canes out of the way. Some of the equipment near it is Economy. I thought maybe they went together. They're definitely belly slung pieces. Also FYI, I did see an advertisement piece today on Ebay about a 1953 Economy Special.The graphic showed a rectangular frame, motor to extreme front, no sheet metal . :blush2:
