The guy I got this tractor from thought it was home built, but didn't really know. From my internet research I'm pretty sure it is some type of Pond tractor. If anybody thinks they know what this tractor is, any information given would be apreciated. Thanks.

Interesting tractor, does not look like a Pond to me. Any Ponds I have seen are square or rectangular tube framed and were powered by Briggs engines. The tube chassis looks similar to the Deere L series, I'm thinking someone with access to multi make parts built something somewhere along the line. Sure has great possibilities!!

Pretty sturdy looking rear end on that. I have no idea what parts would have gone into it but it is an interesting find.

I was thinking about a Gibson however, they all had the "tiller" steering as far as I know.

Thanks for all your thoughts on the tractor. After reading some of the suggestions and doing some more internet searching I found where the casting numbers were on the rear axle, as well as "JD" stamped on the side of the transmission. It seems to be a John Deere L-series chassis, but is missing the original engine, clutch and hood. So thanks again everyone for heading me in the right direction.

Glad you got it figured out, it looks like it would be a rugged little tractor to work with as is or a starting point for an ambitious resto.....
Let us know what you do with it!!
