August 2017 Tractor of the Month!featured tractor totm tractor of the month
I put forth for your consideration, my 1962 Gemco Big Boy. I purchased this machine three years ago. And after an extensive search I managed to find one in South Carolina. Since I only heard, but never seen one before, well you know I, I had to have it. The tractor is shown here with its original Brinly implements the cultivator being my favorite. This tractor is becoming exceedingly rare as there were not many built. They were manufactured in Norfolk, VA. and were distributed by National Mower corp. from a warehouse in Buffalo NY. they were also available for purchase at Goodyear tire stores. The machine is chain driven and also has chain steering. But it's most interesting feature is its innovative implement lift system. While most if not all manufacturer's used an arm lift, this use's a leg lift system for front and rear implements, as the lift arm is reversible. While I personally know of eight of them, one belonging to GTTalk member jabelman and another I owned now in the hands of GTTalk member Andrew Black aka Panzer boy, I have never come across one with it's original lift arm. I should add those are the original paint colors. Thanks Hank.
