The year and make of the barrow is unknown to me. At the time I found the machine, I was buying scrap metal for a horseless carriage project I was working on. I spotted this rusty mass of iron upside down in the weeds and went for further investigation. At a closer look, I discovered it had a forward-reverse transmission all in one unit that I might be able to use in my horseless carriage project. I had to convince the guy to sell it to me. With a little work, some new tires, paint and a model K 1930 (?) Briggs engine, it's a useful machine I can use around the yard. It'll carry anything from dirt to car engines, or just a load of rocks, or some firewood and it dumps just like a dump truck would. So, if anyone out there can tell me what this machine may be and its possible year, please contact Alvyn Webb, at 207-474-8140 in Madison, Maine or mail me at the above address, or you can e-mail me at spider@skowacc.com.

I also rebuild model T's and Model A Fords as well as antique engines
