Looks like you'll have to pull it out of the weeds.

It's probably easier to just post the link to the sale: http://www.auctionzip.com/cgi-bin/au...062&category=0

Thanks, with the radiused rear fenders it appears to be a model 30A. Is this correct?

It's a Cletrac HG. Hard to tell from the pics, but it might be a narrow gauge tractor.

Yep, an HG and more than likely a narrow gauge, given that the fenders are tucked in and are real wide.

Appears to have a cap on the exhaust, that's a plus.

I just bought one with tracks around 7' ? wide.
I would like to know the year and model. Smart phones won't do pics.

There were 4 different width HG crawlers made. The 31 inch, 42 inch, 60 inch & 68 inch for cultivating. The first HG models were made in 1939, The last in 51 or 52. So with what you asked nobody can tell what year it is. Did you look for a serial number tag?

Thanks for identifying the tractor. I hope it finds a good home.

My Cletrac is 77 1/4" wide at the outside of tracks, the numbers are HG 68 and 16GAO58.
the frame has a repair to it, and the air breather disappeared after I bought it two weeks ago. I can not say if it was at the sale site, or if it fell off going down the road, I think it went for a walk after the sale, as I drove fairly slow going home.

That frame repair was fairly common to them. Might be that a air cleaner off a small Oliver tractor would fit.

That tractor is a 1945 model. Air cleaner cups and caps are around. It should have the IXK Hercules engine. More questions?

Are there parts available? Any weaknesses. I hate to sound incompetant or lazy but they sold a yellow ?? blade over in the weeds for $25. I will always wonder. Were they made with blades or were they made for hitch work? Thanks.

The one we had had a front loader on it and was used on a large cattle farm and did all their lot cleaning and silage loading to the feed wagon that filled the feed bunk. They used it many years til the motor gave out and the unit was replaced with a large articulated wheel loader. If the track hadn't been totally worn out they would have simply redone the motor. We fully intended to redo it but better things came along so we got rid of it. The steering is simply breaking one side or the other, there aren't any steering clutches so you have to keep correcting the steering. They are a bit under powered but parts for the little Hercules are still to be found but a bit pricey.
