Beaver demonstration 5424-1, still in service as my trusty snowplow. Tiller steering and heel-toe forward-reverse make this a very quick, agile machine. Orange paint is not a factory color. The other tractors are matched with factory paint.
Beaver 750 was the last model designed by Baird. This tractor was produced by the new company, Beaver Industries, Inc.
5424-1: The first of three demonstrator models. The two black balls to the right are the transmission shift levers.
