Len Howe's lifetime collection showcases rare and unique lawn and garden tractors
Left to right: Two early Gibsons with tiller steering, Model SD, Super D and E.
A pair of Bolens Huski Ridemasters and a David Bradley Tri-Trac at back. The red-and-white Ridemaster is likely the color scheme used at the factory; the green paint job was a personal preference.

No matter what you’re restoring, a broad inventory of replacement parts and pieces comes in handy.

One rare pair: Two Harvey Power Flex Model 10 garden tractors dating to the late 1950s. Note the column shift and Ford brake pedals. The Harvey used a Ford transmission and shifter column as well as Ford hydraulic brakes.
