Photo Page Garden Tractor

Hi All,

We have a Page garden tractor with a "BB" Gladden engine from Glendale, CA. It is about a 3 horse power engine. We just pulled it out of the shed today. It had not seen the light of day in many years. It still turns!

Enjoy!

Cool loos right out of the barn too. Here is a pic of my 46 Page with a wissy motor. I redid it 10yrs back, never fired it up and it currently sits on a shelf in my back shop.

Hey Candy,
Good looking little tractor!
Could I ask if you would take some more / better pictures of the engine? I have a couple of Gladden AB's and a 50. I have heard of and seen their model 40 and 75, but your BB is a new one to me.
Thanks

Hi Jeff,

Man, you did a great restore on that tractor. I guess the BB engine is original to the tractor. Never even heard of a Page or a BB. We really don't know anything about the Page tractor.

Could you please take pictures of the cultivator and the set up of how it attaches to the tractor. My husband is curious. He thinks he might have one around here that might go with it. He just bought it a long time ago and stuffed it away. You know how it is when a guy has a big truck can't leave until it is heaping full.

Thanks,
Candy T.

Hi John,

I'll post the pictures when I get them. There is an ad here on smokstak about the Gladden engines that has a sketching of the 3 hp BB as well as other engines.

Funny this should come up. I just picked one of these up at Portland this spring! I had a Page similar to Jeff's with the Wisconsin motor but this was the first I'd seen a Busy bee on one. Now here is a second one! Guess they made at least two. Doug T

Wow! I've had one of these for 7 years and never saw another. Great to see some out there. Not much info on them. Mine is a wisconsin (don't know the numbers off hand) but they indicated it was a '37 engine if I looked it up right. Showed it at R & T's Harvest last year. I have an brochure for them somewhere here, but they had hood on them. Came in a couple different sizes.

I got one of them damn things. Got some little Briggs on it. When you throw it in gear, you better have hold of it.
