Jacobsen/Continental ?

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Sat Aug 28, 2004 7:15 pm

A neighbor has come up with an old tractor, at least I guess that's what it is. The side panels say Red Seal, with a badge with a Continental logo, it has a Continental engine, and says Continental on the hood. There is a tag on the dash that appears to say Jacobsen G-6. Part of it gives the impression of being homemade, but it also appears to be commercial made. any information you can give me would be helpful. There are more pictures at http://home.centurytel.net/ejpuckett/Jacobsen/

Toro also made a simlar mowing tractor. Theirs (as far as I know, all of theirs) was powered by a Ford engine.

This looks like they used a fully dressed power unit, as the hood/grill etc. all look like standard Continental parts. Red Seal was a Continental trade name. That model engine was first produced in 1936 and was still in my most recent book (1959). The bare engine was rated 49 bhp at 2,400 rpm.

It gave me the impression of being a power unit mounted on a tractor frame also.

Brought back a memory. YMCA has a camp/resort in our area (only one or two like it in the U.S.). There is a lodge where you can rent rooms (no tv or telephone) and also youth camps. When my son was working there we could get discounts and Joann and I stayed there a few days year before last. The camp gets large numbers of kids from St. louis, many of whom have never been in the country before. Since I can't walk too good I got permission to bring my golf cart to get around. Many of the kids saw my "*.?-!.* cub owner" logo on the roof and asked "do you really own a cub, a real bear cub?" It would have been a great opportunity to teach the kids a little aobout country life, but unless you are an employee of the YMCA they strongly discourage you from having much contact with the children there, liability issues I assume. For more info on the camp go to http://www.ymcaoftheozarks.org/

A neighbor of mine has a newer version (1970 something I think) Jacobsen which looks very similar. He said it was used to pull a gang mower on a golf course.

It!s not an airport tug.They have about a ton of half inch steel plate front and back for extra wieght so they can pull very heavy loads,but takes a lot longer to stop.Oh!Oh! :lol: They are usually governerd for slow speed :)

I agree it looks like a golf course mowing tractor. Another common one that was also Ford powered was the Worthington.

Bruce,

Yes... it was an early '47. The fine mesh screen was 8 squares per inch.
