Brian had exactly the same answer I came up with. Will be interested in what the last three are. Couple of them might be worth the price if in fact they are rare. I personally thank he is a bit high but that's just cheapo me talking.

I agree with the first one being Midland but.... They were their own company, not built by Simplicity. I'd say the 3rd pic is a Simplicity. My guess on the 4th is either Bready or Garden Aid. There's very little difference in the 2. The 2nd pic I'm thinking is maybe a Cunningham Sickle mower. Hard to tell from the little pics and poor angles. Being able to see the drive configuration is a big help with ID. The last 2 might be worth 100 ea but the first 2 definately not.

The one on the right is definitely a Gardenaid. You can tell by the wood bowling pin on the handle bars. Since you too are in NY, it is probably one of the early models manufactured in Kingston. Implements are almost impossible to find, and they have a gear reduction engine which makes repower a bit of a chore. I paid $75 for mine, but it's getting sold this spring since I got my DB.

I would grab the Wards/Midland on the left for $100 though. Repowering is a snap, and it's a really well built piece of machinery.

I've heard that the only difference between the Bready and Garden Aid was if it had the wood handle (Garden Aid) or steel (Bready). I've got one with a wood handle and a Bready tag so I'm not 100% sure that's right.

1. Midland
2. Cunningham
3. Waterbury
4. Great Lakes-Big Chief

Thanks for the advice Guys, I thought he was asking a lot but he does say he's sell all of them togeather cheaper. I'm gonna pass on them, although I'm also wondering what sizes those Ag Tires are and if I could use them on my DB's??? That's the only thing that would make it worth it to me.

The Wards/Midland and the Gardenaid both take 12" tires, so they're a bust. My spidey-sense tells me the others do, too.

sorry DanO, but there all going to use the smaller 5x or 6x 12 tires. But on the other hand those are perfect for the Sub riders and maybe dualing one up??? its getting hard to find good used tires for stuff.

DougT, is your two wheeler gearbox or chain driven? To the best of my knowledge, Bready's offerings were chain driven. Gardenaid sold themselves as better than the rest because they were gearbox driven.

Doug, That is what I meant, that Midland built those for M. Wards. Sorry for confusion.
