Roper made Sears tractors for years, don't know how far back, when Sears used to deal with a manufacturer for years at a time but now they seem to be bidding their items, tools, mowers, appliances, etc., so don't know who does it now except for the Simplicity models they sell. Don't shop for them.

In the late 50's to mid 60's Sears sold David Bradley tractors etc., DB was bought out by Roper in about 1966 they supplied tractors to Sears sometime in the 80's Roper was bought out by Electrolux which in turn was purchased by AYP (American Yard Products) they still supply tractors to Sears any Sears products that the model number starts with 917 is a Roper / AYP made unit. An amazing thing is that in 1966 Roper designed their 3 speed + Hi Lo range transaxle with was used in various versions until about 2004.
