Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Have been trying to post a picture from the MW catalog but can't get it small enough. If I had your email I would send you the pdf page.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Holy Smokes Garry, that's a lot of info. I just got back to the computer and haven't had time to really look thru it but one file I opened has an exact picture of the walker I bought. Same except it has knob tires where mine has the ags but the picture showing the pulleys and controls is identical.

Hope to have time in the morning to really look at all this great stuff. I suspect there are a lot of people that would like to see this information, maybe you could contact a mod about making it a sticky or put it in the manuals section.

Thanks a bunch.

Mike

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

I see the MW catalog for 1949 show the HoeTrac and PlowTrac as Midland produced models with the single oval tube for a handle bar which Midland used till the end in 1958. After that all the 2-wheelers were Simplicity produced. Don't have 1947 and a single 1946 page appears to be a Simplicity model HoeTrac.
Probably 1948 was the only year for the Waterbury. Here in Canada there was a Waterloo 2-wheel tractor and have often though maybe they were decendents of the Waterbury but very little is known about them.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Does it have small tubes that come up from the tractor to form the handlebars or a large single oval tube with the handlebar on the end of it?

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

I have a tractor like yours. It is a MW ( can see the decal on the frame). Mine is a MFD W7-19957. I have a sickle bar on mine that works! quite well in fact. Will post some pics of it when I figure out how. The color is orange with green rims. I don't think that it has ever been painted as all the decals and id tags are there. Would love some info on tractor, have owners guide for sickle bar. WyoPat

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Mine was orange with green rims as well. I have NEVER seen a decal on one. Everything around here has sat outside forever.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Mine also is orange with green rims.

I've really GOT to get my act together about posting pictures.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

Well I'm trying this out. Pics of MW powertrac. I took the sickle bar off to see if I can find some more knives. No one out here has seen 2" knives, and I haven't found any yet. Any ideas where to look? WyoPat Top photo not as clear as I wanted.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

I saw one go on auction today for $20. It had a dozer blade, sickle mower, disc and cultivator. It also had a Brinely plow but I asked it be sold seperately and it came home with me.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

That's a lot bigger sickle bar than the 2 different ones I have.

Re: Montgomery Ward Walker

I'm not sure what kind of engine, the no. on it is WMC-ABN 62908 1917804 4.2 HP 3ooorpm. The sickle bar is about 36" long. I also have 2 more implements(or are they called attachments?) They are in a shed and I haven't drug them out for their photo op. Sure wish that I knew when I bought this one to get all the other stuff with it. I got it at auction and all I really wanted at the time was the mower. I have another frame and tires but no orininal engine ( put a 5hp briggs and straton on it). WyoPat
