My Dad tells me that he brought this Walker home in the trunk
of his car after buying it at a Wards store in Des Moines, Iowa in 1958. I
was four at the time. In the 60's, my brother and I would move the belt to
the high speed pulleys and drag our wagon around the gravel driveway at the
church (dad was the pastor). Fearing that his precious garden tractor
would be abused (we loved spinning the tires) - he found a used Go-Kart for $40.
So the tractor was spared. Trust me, this thing has made a few passes
through the garden already as there were seven kids in our family and we needed
the garden to survive. He originally brought home a reel mower for the
front, a narrow rear tiller and cultivator. I have the tiller - though it
is extremely worn. I have the cultivator, but need parts - especially
wheels. The mower is long gone. I would love to get another tiller
for it and some
parts for the cultivator. Can anyone help me out with where to go? I
had a blacksmith friend make me a snow plow from a 24" pipe in the methane
fields here in Gillette, Wyoming. It's crude and will at least get painted
this summer. It's a brute pushing snow!
What a great website. Thank you. There are no stickers or plates on this tractor. From the scanned photos and information of the catalogue on this site it appears to be a hybrid of a Model A and Model FC. It has the Model A transmission, but frame and wheels of the FC. It still pulls kids in a wagon!
