The orange tractor is a Montgomery Ward. It has a 5/8 HP, model E2K engine made by the Hummer Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Illinois. It has an external magneto instead of the usual flywheel type seen on most engines. When I purchased it, I received all the original instructions and parts list. I believe it dates around 1936.

The green engine on the green garden tractor is a TLC Lauson (? horse power). I don't have any info as to who manufactured the tractor. Maybe some body will know.

They are both painted the original colors.
