we have at least one thread on these tractors here. In the late 70's a company in Iowa made one called a power wheel. Later another company from MS made one called a power hoss. I recently found another company called Redco was involved. There also made the same basic machine with a clinton engine and a pair of steel wheels. Most of them have been red and white, but one guy here has one that looks to have been orginaly green and white, with a clinton engine. Most of the ones ive seen have used a briggs 6-1 rudced engine. Your is probally missing the belt gaurd that covered the big pully. This part would have had the company logo or name on it. The only other tag ive seen is a sticker type one ofn the frame with a model number/seriel number. Other than that there been little info on them.

I think they are kind of a neat looking thing, and probally the last hurruh for the walk-behind tractor.

If you click "Done" instead of "insert inline", it will put them under the post as attachments. If you want to put a pic in the post, type the post, then put the cursor where you want the pic. Then add the pic using the "Insert Inline" and the pic will be put there.
