I can store this T-Tractor in my pole barn for at least 6 months if it is paid for in full. I can also load it with a fork lift if you need it. Righ Drive Gear

That is a great Doodlebug, I am glad I have a sickle bar mower bug or I would be trying to convince the wife that I need a new toy! good luck with finding it a new home.

What is the origin of the sickle bar itself? Was it adapted from a horse drawn implement or from a tractor or what ? Thanks

I think it was a McCormick mower. I don't know much about it. The fellow i bought it from got it from an estate. It had been used in parades for many years. I was found parked in a warehouse for so long that the rear tires were melted fast to the concrete floor. They had to use large scrapers jammed under the rear tires to get it loose. I patched the rear tubes and tires when i got it. They are still aired up after all these years. I did find and buy a pair of NOS tires/tubes/liners for the rear. They are included in this sale. The rear wheels are not Ford Model T. They are a size tire that is no longer made. In fact i just remembered that i found the tires on this very site. Steve

Virtual clone of mine and another one up in Canada that has been featured on here. Mine and the Canadian one had both been pulled out of Pennsylvania- which lends some credibility to the story I got that 30 of these had been made in the mid-late 30s by a guy in Pennsylvania using Ts and IHC/McCormick Deering horse drawn mower parts.

Mr. Hall - do you have any history on yours?

You also responded to my running Craigslist ad, so I asked you the same question through that.
