I have a few pics of MY tractors here at Motomow , but these are of the project that my daughter and I are starting to tackle . Picked this up free . Toro 550 with a briggs engine . No rear end , but everything else is there (do have the front tires and rims) . Still trying to find out about this little tractor . Know nothing about it .







Also picked up this Huffy . Good start to another project for my daughter .







These are little machines , but boy are they heavy for their size . Hoping to get the Toro running first , then work on the Huffy as time permits .

Huffy looks like it would make a good little racer.

Welcome to the forum BTW. Why not take a few minutes to introduce yourself in the introductions folder?

Sadly , I think one of those is going to get torn apart . The rear end is missing from the Toro , but the huffy has one . Both are chain drive, so think I'll be pulling the rear from the Huffy to put into the Toro . Unless I can find something to fit the Toro , locally .

What's funny about the Toro is that no one seems to have seen one like that or know anything about them .

Btw , my daughter has her own tools , real ones, that I got her for xmas . And she insists on helping dad work on his tractors . So this is something she is really into since it's hers. Lol , and she's quite the foreman to boot . Here she is looking over the situation after I dragged this log out with my 3210V .

Well , my little foreman insisted that I drop was I was doing and get to work on HER tractor . stripped the rear out of the Huffy and dry fitted it to the Toro . I was surprised to find that with just making a couple of brackets it will fit nicely . The sprocket even lines up where it should . Once I get the rear set up it'll be time to tear it down and paint the whole thing .

The tires on the rear are a little small . But don't have anything in my pile that will fit . Those rims have the shaft welded on and the shaft is slid over the axle shaft and a bolt holds them together . Kinda like my 810GT . Don't think it will matter that the tires are a little small since this is not going to be worked like mine .
