Table saw? Chain saw motor? And where would the engine go anyway? That's the largest freaking pulley I have EVER seen on any sort of garden/lawn tractor!

That must be the original Transformer. Only 1200 for a table saw and a GT. Some deal!

These were sold under Hiller, Yardhand and Craftsman names. They were all built by Hiller shortly after WWII. This one says yardhand on the hood. The table saw mounted on the hood and the belt went through the slot that can be seen in the pics. They used a small power products 2 stroke that mounted down in the area under the seat. It needed that big of a pulley for reduction so it could pull itself. There was also a pull behind reel mower. It isn't much bigger than a pedal tractor.
