Wow that's a great find, with all the paperwork. :handgestures-thumbupright: Not sure what's better the tractor or the paperwork.

Very cool find! I've got one of these myself. Ravenna Ohio would be a Harold Pond tractor... Might want to move this to other brands? 😉

Add oil every 5 hrs. That's a lot of oil! :)

That is quite the "jackpot" you found!

And the prices for the attachments on the papers too!

Doesn't get any better than that! I'd love to find a walk behind someday myself.

Hey Steve really like you recent Pond Walker find, that is great with all the original paperwork, was wondering if would be possible to get a copy of the rotary mower literature?

That is an early style WT walker. Where the handle bars go is cast and one side is casted P.S.CO for Pond Speedex Company and other side should have Ravenna,Oh in it. The later style were steel and nothing stamped in them. The engine tilt i never seen before. I noticed your handle is opposite direction.
