The other tractor in the first pic is a Sears Custom 6 or 7, and the one in the second picture is a tube-frame Bolens.

Chris,that tractor belonged to my Great Uncle and was stolen in 1954, I appreciate you bringing it to our attention,we have desperately been searching for it since.:D I haven't a clue,but it looks familiar,like one of those Kit Tractors from Popular Mechanics years ago.

Gene, I found a similar looking "Wards" tractor on the Yesterdays Tractors GT gallery. Looks to have the same rear fenders, steering column, and intermediate pulleys. http://www.antiquetractors.com/cgi-bin/photo_pic.cgi?pic=http;//www.antiquetractors.com/gphotos/a7974.jpg&firstrec=1&lastrec=15&Parameter=garden%20mark&mode=All&what=gphotos

Marty I bet there is a good story about that 112 you found. Thought you may have seen these up north as well. Fellow who owns this green one is kinda proud of it. Think I may save my $ for AC parts but it sure was an adventure finding out. Never heard of a Midland however internet info says they also made 2 wheelers. Still think it looks like a mini airport tug.

There is a Midland walkbehind sitting out rusting away at a local theme park. Tried since I became a single man to talk ole George out it. Sad thing is the orginal owner offer it to me before George got it. Has a plow, disc and sickle mower with it. B-112 was my first rubber necking score about 6 months after I got the 725, the begining of my fever.
