July Tractor of the Month!featured tractor totm tractor of the month
For "lawn motoring" this is what I have. Here`s my 1920 Milbradt riding mower, probably one of the first gas powered riders! It is powered by a Missouri Gas Engine Co. engine, I`ve been told that they mainly made marine engines. The transmission is a forward/reverse marine transmission. A good friend of mine had this for sale, my wife loved it too when she saw it, and she bought it for my birthday almost 2 years ago! It certainly pays to wait for the right woman!
The transmission slipped badly when I finally got it running and picked up a very large (and expensive!) drive chain for it and tried taking it for a test drive. I hope to have all the bugs worked out of it for the shows later this summer. It has a very primitive condenser on the engine for cooling, and tiller steering. Ignition is by a timer on the engine and a battery and coil under the seat. A very cool ride!
