That there's worth fixin'
I posted about this tractor back during cold weather when I saw it on CL. Well the price dropped so I had to go for it. I got it from a very fine gentleman in New Hampshire. It turns out to be a 1952 Baird Beaver. It starts easily and runs very well. Has a solid rear axle but built into the HUBS is a sort of differential to aid in turning. It has a Wisconsin AKN (6HP) and seems quite overpowered. Came with a bottom plow, cultivator and front blade. The pulling power is pretty amazing. Wheelbase is 6 or 8 inches longer than my old sears suburban tractors. It is one speed forward and has reverse, all run by the right side foot pedal. stomp it into gear and hold on tight. The implement lift works for both the front and rear attachments. It's a blast to drive around, the tiller steering makes it really easy to manuever. The throttle shaft is worn very badly (about .040" play, no kidding) indicating mucho hours but no smoke or knocks. Just starting to learn about this one but not much to go wrong. Seems very complete Some parts removed in these following pics as I was checking it out. Here it is: Rick
