Economy, Jim Dandy, and Speedex Garden Tractors
The most common older vintage garden tractor we have on the yard at Burch Store Tractors is the Economy brand. Engineered Products in Wisconsin started building Economy tractors in 1946. Later, the Economy garden tractor was built under the Jim Dandy and Power King names.
We have Economy garden tractors going back to the very early chain steering model. Some Economy garden tractors are equipped with hitches and hydraulics. We have Economy tractors that are no hood, half hood, and full hood models.
Also, we have a Speedex 1030 and Speedex 840 model garden tractors. Both of these later model Speedex garden tractors are complete and possible good candidates for restoration.
Here are a couple of interesting facts regarding the history of Speedex tractors. Harold and Elmer Pond in 1935 started the "POND TRACTOR COMPANY", which built the Speedex tractor. The Speedex Model B was the first 4 wheel riding garden tractor in the USA. Around 1946 the brothers dissolved their partnership. Elmer Pond went on to found the "POND WHEELHORSE COMPANY", located in Indiana. Harold Pond then renamed his company to the "SPEEDEX TRACTOR COMPANY".
