Here is a picture of the Spry Wheel walk behind plow I have just restored. It is severity to eighty years old. I found it in a barn in Claremont, New Hampshire and have restored it to its original condition and colors.

It is so old that it has no engine numbers. It is direct drive and has no throttle, only a spark control. It has the old block style chain. It was manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts and I believe the company had offices in New York as well. They had a full page ad in the February 1921 issue of Country Gentleman advertising the plow for $150.00.

I am retired and I restore one lunger engines and exhibit them at the local shows and in Zolfo Springs, Florida. I am a member of the Granite State Antique Gas and Steam Engine Association, the Central Gas and Steam Engine Association, the Vermont Gas and Steam Engine Association, and the Cast and Brass Engine Association.
