Identify This Tractor!

Any idea what this is and what it may be worth?

Re: Identify This Tractor!

Are you looking specifically for the make?..or just what it is?....It is a 2 wheel tractor....with a sulkie...could be an old Gravely or Simplicity...I think a few other companies also made them also...can you see what engine is on it?...I see them for sale (Simplicity and Gravely) on CL and FB in working condition with decent tires anywhere from 100 to 900...I don't think they actually sell for more than a hundred...maybe a 125...that one in that condition, looks like a parts machine....maybe a 50 dollar machine unless the tires are good and you have another use for them and the weights

Yes, if you google "standard twin tractor" you will find much information on them. They were produced 1934-1955 according to one website. Let us know if you get it running.

Re: Identify This Tractor!

Hmm, doesn't look like it'd be worth much, even in terms of actual use. They're asking 250 for it and clearly it's been part of the woods for what looks like decades. I'm decent at getting things running if they take a tune up, but I'm not interested in getting elbow deep into engine re-builds and stuff like that just yet.

Not even sure if it's worth offering any low balls for this one.

No, more of an item to drive in a parade with overalls, straw hat and a corn cob pipe. Does the engine turn? Does it have compression? Another consideration is tires as the ones currently on it look poor. Jot down the tire size and contact Miller tire for pricing. Be prepared for a shock.

Re-post on MTF>Lawn & Garden Tractors>2 wheeled tractors and you might get more informed responses. The Garden Tractor Talk forum has a very active Walk Behind Tractor sub-forum as well.

Best guess standard twin It could be a pre war Sears handiman definitely not a David bradley . It isn't worth much . All I see is yard art . Too far gone for most people to try to restore

Every breath I take as a Free man was paid for with the blood of an American Soldier
From Concord and Valley Forge to the sands of Iraq
and mountians of afghanistan American soldiers have
paid the ultimate price For our Freedom.I am ever mindful
and for ever greatful for their sacrifice
My heros have always been American Soldiers
