  1. When i asked that question to Cecil Pond at the big show a few years back, he said " i have no idea, but when we made the move to the big factory, once we were in operation, we were crating one tractor every 3 minuets 5 days a week "

    Wheel Horse Trailer

    I found this in a barn at a tag sale Saturday on my way to the show in Ct. Neeedless to say i was so excited that i never made it to the show. The woman i bought it from said her late husband had just finished restoring it . He passed away 3 weeks ago. And that he had bought it around 1960. It is in supurb condition, as i pulled both wheels off and the bearings were fine and loaded with grease. The only id i found was a manafactures tag welded on the steel under the rear frame.I can read the number 59-???? ( i think3015). Trailer bed tilts down by releasing a safety lock then pulling a small lever , on the draw-bar. (Silver) Draw-Bar also pivots 45 degrees left or right.

    Suburban International!

    Lars, David here, I have a Suburban 400 and 550 the 550 has the original Lauson engine and hood stand This hood stand is just like yours, the reason it is shaped like that is so you can get at the front of the engine C arb and hook up throttle.+choke. The Suburban 400 and 550 use the same hood with the choke and throttle in the obolong hole under steering wheel. NOTE- I could ship the muffler and pipe +housing to where the crating is taking place.for a lot less. I would send tomorrow if you give me the address. Then i will adjust the Total price. . Regards, David
