Montgomery Ward, Model WS6, Plow-Trac Tractor. Wisconsin 3 hp engine at 2600 rpms. Puchased in 08 at auction for $15-. Bought it for the F Cub fitting wheel weights. Got it home. Found the engine had good compression and a"J" magneto. Cleaned up carburetor, JB Welded mag cover. Been using for 3 years to plow garden.
I have an excuse. CRS.

That is why I like auctions. A real deal for what you bought it for, but it turned out even better!

I plow two small garden plots with it. My Cub with plow and disk harrow is about 14 or 15 miles from the garden plots. I can have the garden plots worked in less time than I can move the Cub and equipment.

I use a Cub Cadet to tow a disk harrow and peg toothed harrow that were used with 2 wheeled garden tractors to smooth up the garden plots. The two wheeled garden tractor works pretty well for plowing. Disk harrowing with the 2 wheeled garden tractor is a man killer - goes great in a straight line - turning a short radius - almost physically impossible. The Plow-Trac weighs about 400 lbs with plow installed. Removing the plow and installing the disk adds about another 100 lbs to the tractor and most of the weight is behind the wheels.
