I have aquired a Sears Roebuck running gear. It has a Model# 700.455 and a serial #S-69216. Does anyone have info on this? I would like to know the capacity and age. Thanks, Fred

I have a Sears Roebuck Wagon running gear Model 700.455, Serial No. S78139. I am looking for info on it also. Did you ever find out anything more about yours? I am curious about how old it is also. Thanks, Gene

Fred, Thanks for your quick reply. I will keep searching and maybe find something through our local Central Wisconsin Steam Engine Club. Mine is in remarkably good shape, the previous owner built a canopy over it and used it to sell pumpkins at the farmers market. I've been using it to haul firewood out of the woods because it is narrow enough to maneuver. Gene

Mine was in excellent shape also except it was hard to turn... After a good greasing and some penetrating oil and a little dragging around it freed up nicely... I can't remember the capacity but as you said it was compact. The person that sold it to me had a 250 bushel flare bed on it.. So I am sure it was close to 8 ton??

I did have 2 of them with 125 bushel gravity beds on them---sold one, kept one to pull behind the 1-row NI pull picker at shows, and to store chicken corn in after harvest.
