The City of Monrovia used it to haul cast iron pipe up in the Monrovia Canyon for a water line. They made a pipe dollie out of airplane tail wheels and put a telescoping tong on it and it replaced burros which would fall off the trail too often. I believe it had a Wisconsin engine. Maybe the fellows out there know. But I used it to harrow and level and plow. It is real powerful and will turn on a dime and give change!

My brother Carl Hebert put on the cutting handles, on right is twist-throttle, left has the kill button. It has a Ford type crank and kicks on the first spin. I steam cleaned a D8 Caterpillar and painted it so I took the little tractor and parked it next to the D8 Caterpillar. What a picture! (Which I am still trying to find.) It pulled the plow in this picture. Courtesy of: W. F. 'Bill' Hebert, 1848 N. Ashby Road #26, Merced, California 95340.
