My "new" George

I bought this George one wheeler at a local show yesterday. The engine I bought separately and it is stuck. I had a similar George 20+ years ago but I believe this is an earlier model. Someone has poured concrete in the wheel. I will use an air chisel to remove it. One of the attachments available was a sickle mower and I would really like to find one for it.IMG_31072021_152159_(150_x_150_pixel).jpgIMG_31072021_152213_(150_x_150_pixel).jpgIMG_31072021_152234_(150_x_150_pixel).jpg

Those are a cool little machine!!
They were made not too far from here in Sullivan IL.
Same people made the Workbird also.

Never seen anything like it.
So this was a frame with an engine driving a single, big steel wheel, and you could get different attachments for it?
Cool!

I have a simular machine. Bought it with no engine and no belt tension linkage. I had to make some new bushings and replace 2 pulleys. The tension linkage is hand built and is all guesswork. The Briggs 5s seems to fit it well. Fun to take it to shows and drive it around. I will try to make a cultivator plow for it later. They seem to be pretty rare.20210906_191208.jpg
