    Power centers are located at the front, center and rear of the B-1, providing live power to operate all implements no matter where they mount.  Notice, too, the excellent clearance for ease of mounting the rotary mower and sickle bar.

    7-1/4 HORSEPOWER DEPENDABILITY Equipped with a mechanical  governor, the B-1's remarkable power plant develops a  full 7-1/4 hp at 3600 rpm . . . plenty of power to perform any job.  Briggs & Stratton service is close by, too.
    A complete 12-volt electrical system . . . battery, generator-starter and all, is standard equipment.  Electric light kits available.

    Controlled height of mounted implements is a cinch with the "easy-lift" control lever.  Its leverage ratio does the work.

    A new spur-gear differential provides driving torque to both wheels at all times . . . provides special traction even when one wheel spins.
