Interesting find

Recommended Posts

At the swap meet last week, I ran across a front counterweight for a walk behind tractor.

Problem is, it is painted yellow, and sure appears to be the original color.

I had a friend and fellow club member look at it, and he thinks the yellow paint is original too.

All the simplicity walkers were orange weren't they ???

I measured it against my walker, and I know it will fit simplicity, and no one else used the same mounts I don't think.

Any ideas ???

I'll try and get pictures tomorrow.

Never seen or heard of one. In fact, I dont know of any mfg that had a yellow walker....tillers yes, walking tractors, no (at least net yet). Coulda been a municiple or govnt machine (or very old repaint)?

Photo is a bit whased out, but that looks like my Monkey Wards parts.

I first wondered about the bright yellow paint, my disc is all yellow including the wooden bearing blocks, mold board plow is orange with yellow top frame that is unitque to MW, but the snowplow and cultivators were orange.

I guess they figured the "early season" tools should be a bright color so you could find them in the weeds :-)
