Just flipping through my three copies of Alan C King's books and not much jumps out that fits your description other than the Copar you mention. One I see is the Laurel from Denver, CO; it is dated as 1954 in the book. Looks like 16" rear wheels and a dual-wheel tricycle front. Another is the Bantam from the same time period. The pictures show and list lots of implements that were available.

In addition there are some silly looking little things that would hardly even be considered a lawn mower these days - examples are the Strunk Co. Chipmunk and the Hiller Engineering Corp. Yard Hand. They both look like the "big" tires have no more than 6" rims.

Im wondering what I could have said to make sure that any responding KNEW that I was talking about 3 wheel GARDEN T R A C T O R S , that looked like miniature R O W + C R O P, T R A C T O R S??
NOT Lawn mowers. I had a 3 wheel swisher when I was a kid.
NOT Sears 3 wheeler, as it looks more like a giant insect than a ROW CROP TRACTOR

To KNOW what Im looking for, please go to U TUBES and click on Panzer Garden tractors, and look at the 3 wheeler plowing.
THOSE garden tractors, and any other makes besides BANTAM are what I am looking for.

Farmallb, I think most of us understood your post. The fact remains that there were not likely that many ever made, so most of us mention what we are familiar with, as is normal with most threads. Why didn't you refer us to the Youtube videos to begin with? I knew that the Sears Tri-Trac was not exactly what you were referring to, and I most humbly apologize for insulting your superior intelligence! PS, I never thought much of the Farmall B either!

In the late 50s or early 60s, Sears sold a "reverse" three wheeler. It had a wide front axle and one drive wheel in the back, so you could cultivate two rows at a time. They weren't very popular, partly because you had to straddle the thing like a horse to ride it. It was called the "Tri-Trac".
