Montgomery Ward Walk behind tractor

Recommended Posts

Hello. I just bought a Montgomery Ward (Simplicity) walk behind garden tractor. It came with a tiller, sickle bar, plow blade, cultivator, and a sulky. It runs great and has a fresh coat of paint. I never owned one of these but it is pretty cool.  I can't find a model number on it but I would say it was from the 50's. I am looking for information/manuals about the tractor if anyone can help.  It has a 5 hp tecumseh engine that runs well, but yesterday it started overspeeding so I shut it down.  I haven't taken a look at it yet but it is probably a spring came off the governor or something like that.  I attached a picture of it if anyone can help me identify it.

Thanks,

Earl

I can't help you with your inquiry, but a beautiful package. dOd There are several members here who have some walk-behinds that should be along shortly. Welcome to the club.

Welcome to the club. Don't know anything about Tecumseh engines, sure is a nice looking collection you have . I would guess that you are on the right track with the spring idea.

That tractor was built for Wards by Midland. It uses some of the Simplicity attachments but is not a Simplicity tractor. Also the Tecumseh engine is a replacement. That being said; you still have a very nice package of walk behind stuff. Enjoy.

I concur with Dave's observation, Midland built. Quite good tractors, real workhorse for the size. And that one sure looks nice.
