These were sold under several different names so getting the right name might be a challenge. They were built by Simplicity and sold through Wards as a Team-Trac. The Sim model may have been a C. They were also sold as BMBs.

CONGRADULATIONS To member "wvbuzzmaster"and "DougT" for correctly naming this tractor. Casey had it figured out within 5 minutes of it being posted. I had hidden his post to let others guess, but DougT., got it first thing this morning. I thought it would take longer to figure out then that. Shows what I know.

I am also calling member "DougT." the Co-Winner of this because he nailed it also.

You made me think I was crazy because I was sure there weren't any other guesses when I made mine.

Congratz, DougT, I am glad someone else knew it right off like I did. I knew it so fast I think I scared Brian last night LOL.

It's inteeresting that they are calling it a plow-trac. The only ones I know of with that style hood were the team-trac which was bigger than the plow-trac. Something else to look for!

Sorry Chuck, I was amazed at how fast Casey nailed it that I sent him a note and hid the post.

Mabey I have the incorrect name too. I could not find my 1939 Montgomery Wards tractor flyer last night so had to go with instinct. It is bigger than the MW Hoe Trac I have that looks just like it, cept the hood and size of course lol. I will try to track that flyer down and we will figure out what they are really called LOL.

This is what the seller has listed on it,,,,,,

This Plow Trac dates to the early 1940's. A tag on the hood appears to read "W3 - 973". The tire size is 600/16. The equipment includes a heavy duty mounted 8" plow, a mounted adjustable tool bar, a disk with 14" blades that mounts on the tool bar. Cultivators also mount on the tool bar, but only one cultivator shank is present.


Maybe that will help....

That does help a little Brian, as there are three models available: the Plow-Trac, Cult-Trac, and Hoe-Trac. Looking at the pictures I believe we are looking at a Cult-Trac, as it is the only one with the tire size resembling 6.00-16 as my manual is older than the actual tractor here. The Plow-Trac hood is wide, and the tires huge, like a 20 inch rim huge. Also the Plow-Trac uses an 11 inch plow bottom, while the Cult-Trac has a 7 inch plow bottom. So I think we have this Cult-Trac figured out.
