Hi everyone,I could use some help to ID this old walkbehind.A friend of mine gave me this a few years ago.It was out in his field for some time.It was during the wet season and he didn't want to rut up his field so we each grabbed a handle and dragged it up on good ground.Had to stop twice for a beer.It's heavier than it looks.Well this is what I know about it.It's got a Wisconsin AENL that dates to 1959, a 4-1 gear reduction that reverses the rotation,a three speed trans-axle with top load shifter off to one side,and a friction clutch.Well here's some pics.Thanks for looking.

I've never seen anything like that; I just spent a while flipping pages and clicking folders... this one's unique. I suspect it was put together in someone's shop, but there were so many companies that made 2 wheelers, it's hard to say. Either way it's pretty cool, I'll be keeping an eye on this

Some of it looks factory and some looks to be "farmer engineered". I'd like to see the front of the frame where the weeds are and what is under the barbell weight. With no hitch on the back it most certainly was not set up to be a garden tractor. As heavy as it was built, I wonder if it originally had a tub on the front to haul concrete into tight places or something like that? A powered wheelbarrow of some sort.

Thanks guys,my thoughts were that it is part homemade also.The front piece is a front end of a small tractor with the steering welded.I,m going to get it in the shop today and clean it up a little.I,ll post better pics of the trany later. Maybe someone will recognize it.
Gtractor,good thoughts on the front end hauler. There is more potential for front attachments,the way it is built.

Well I got it in the shop today.I did some cleaning underneath and found the original color to be red.I also found a tag on the transaxle that looks like it says PAKE on it.I spent some time googleing that and came up with nothing.I took the tires and muffler off and got some better pictures of the frame.It looks like something was mounted on the left side and on the right is a drive sprocket on the axle.The plate steel is 3/8 thick and looks factory milled.If this is home built the guy had a nice shop. Maybe someone will recognize the trany.Thanks for looking.
