Who has an Economy Tractor, Power King, or Jim Dandy?

Does it still work around the yard?

How long have you had it?

And good stories behind it? Ill Start.

I own a 1961 Economy Tractor that I completely rebuilt in 2006. Every bearing, seal, worn part was replaced. stripped, painted and set out to get scratched and dirty again! My tractor was originally purchased for grounds keeping of a golf course near Baltimore, MD. My Grandpa purchased it from the golf course in 1963 and has used/owned it until 2006. in 2006 after his passing I acquired it and did his tractor justice by a complete rebuild. I use it to mow grass, haul things around in the cart, anything you would use a small tractor to do.

Anyone that is not familiar with these tractors here are a few bullet points.

Built from 1946-1984

While I don't have that brand I am currently running my grandfather's 1954 Farmall Super A. I love all types of old iron. 'Merica!
