Standard Twin garden tractor tackled gardens and small farms
The standard's drive arrangement to the sickle bar mower allows operation at any angle, even vertical.
Standard's combination planter/fertilizer assemblies with adjustable row width.
The operator must remember to block up the Standard in front when removing implements from the back.
Two pulley options were offered. A flat belt was used to run a buzz saw or washing machine; a centrifugal clutch was used for V-belt operation. In either case, the starting crank goes through the pulley to start the engine.

The planter's "shoe" area, where seed and fertilizer get to the ground from boxes.
NOS clutch discs on the Twin. 1928 Ford Model A cars used multiple clutch discs as well, but they were expensive to manufacture.
Sphagnum moss was once used as a filter material in the Twin's air cleaner. Owner Bob Adamek installed the chain to guard against the cleaner becoming lost or damaged should it be shaken loose. Note the heavy cast iron construction of the cases.
