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.

I'm not sure on that, I'd have to try and check. I think the guard over it is tin. Does yours have a tag on it? I think DanO should go check these out and at least get us better pictures.

To tell you the Honest truth, I'm NOT familiar with any of these machines and wouldn't even know what I was lookin' at. But They are located about 1 hour from my house. If any of you guys are seriously Interested I can go check them out. Heck, I am very tempted to go look at them and offer the guy $200 for the Lot. Gotta be worth that in parts alone I would think.

i do know the first is a midland and also know the wire baskets are not original on the last two pics.

Sure they are!! Thats how one gets a crate motor for a GT.

I would agree that the 3rd one is a Waterbury. Some years ago I had one with a Clinton engine, but I believe the engine was not original. In Dave Baas Vintage Garden Tractors 2nd Edition, page 73 there is a picture of a model E with a B&S Model 9 engine that looks like a match.
Also in Alan King's Garden Tractors 1920 - 1956, page 44, there is a photo of a Waterbury Model E that looks like a match as well.
