Sorry Doug, I didn't take a picture of my rear tine walk behind tiller before I took off to work or even my walk behind snowblower. Then at lease there would have been something for your month of walk behinds. I just didn't think that was what you meant or wanted...

I will nominate my 1955 Gravely Model L walk behind
This walk behind with the 30 inch rotary mower is a beast.
The motor is a Gravely 6.6 H.P. T block with Fairbanks-Morse mag.
I have two different blades for the rotary mower, one is 1/2 inch thick and the other is 1/4 inch thick
The 1/4 inch thick blade is for finish mowing and the heavier is for brush and tall grass cutting.
I have only used this set up with the thicker blade and it does a marvelous job on clearing land that has overgrown in weeds and saplings.
I hit one of those small disposable propane tanks and the mower never missed a beat.
The propane tank was almost in two pieces afterwards.
When I got this tractor the sides of the mower deck were rusted out and the tires were rotten.
Found a cheap set of 8 inch lug tires and fabricated new skis and sides on the deck.
Engine is equipped with optional chain drive electric start.

I'd like to hear more about the "optional chain drive electric start". Sounds interesting..!

I'm a little late but here's my Standard Walsh , the story about how I got it in August 2016 .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 I stopped at my cousin Stan's house today . He and his wife bought my grandparents house after my grandmother died . With the house and outbuilding was a Standard Walsh 2 wheel garden tractor my grandfather used . I have my grandfathers David Bradley Tri Trac since my grandmother gave it to me the year after my grandfather died 1994 I was telling him that I regret not talking my grandfather into going to the Jacktown engine show when I first found out about it . I asked if either him or his brother or sister would take his mom and dad to the fall Jacktown show . He said they would try and then looked at me and asked if I would like Grandpop's old tractor . Tears came down my face , kind of thinking he knew the answer was YES we walked over to the building it was kept . He said he pushed it the corner 9 years ago and didn't work on it and thought it would go to a good home . I asked if I could take the paperwork that he had in a plastic home today and when he and his wife come back the following week from vacation I will pick it up . I promised that even if I don't have it running I will have it at Jacktown in Oct.                                                                                     EDIT : Sorry I can't load pictures from this laptop as well as I can from work so I'll try it another way

If you get them loaded, we can merge the two posts to get the pics in there.

 

Edit: Since FF browser will not allow Flash Player to work, I have had to go to the basic uploader and do one pic at a time. This is another reason the site software needs upgraded!

Noel; my walk behind Simplicity and Wards tractors are buried at the back of my storage building. I can't find any pictures at the present time so have to pass this time. RATS.

Didn't want to get accused of collusion or misconduct. I'm struggling to find 2 pictures of my running tractors. I never take pics of them.

I don't believe I've seen any of your tractors Doug. Grab the camera & snap some pics, You must have a few pics somewhere tho. I don't see why anyone can argue that your tractors aren't allowed to be a part of this, it's not like you're a politician & have inside help from Russia to stack the deck in your favor, do ya? Lol.
