I am not sure why, but I purchased this neat little tractor today. It is a Springfield 36, made in Springfield, OH by Quick Manufacturing in the early 60â€™s (I believe it is around a 62). I have done some internet searches and havenâ€™t found out much about them, Quick Mfg. Apparently sold to Toro at some time and that is about all I can find on them other than they had power cultivators prior to this. It appears to be well built and all originalâ€¦ but the obvious, missing the steering wheel and seat! Previous owner said he purchased it from the granddaughter of the original owner and she kept the seat and steering wheel as a â€œmementoâ€ of gramps.
It has a mower deck with 2 blades and the engine is a 7 HP Briggs & Stratton engine and I got the classic line â€œit was running good when I parked itâ€. I will stick a battery to it and see what it does.
Does anyone know anything about these? A guy on eBay notes he has â€œhundreds of Springfield manualsâ€, I have sent him an enquiry about my model.
Now the real dilemmaâ€¦ do I keep it original and complete the restoration or make a â€œMini Cubâ€ with paint and decals?
