Lennox Garden Tractors
Many people don't know that for a few brief years Lennox, the company that makes furnaces and air conditioners, also made garden tractors. They were called the Lennox Kittytrack and were manufactured in 1963, 1964 and 1965. In January 1965, the Lennox Kittytrack equipped with an electric start engine sold for $540.
  The two Kittytracks that I own were made in 1964 and are powered by a 6 hp Briggs & Stratton electric start motor. There were eight manually-operated attachments available for the Kittytrack: a moldboard plow, lift-type disk harrow, toolbar, rotary weed mower, planter-fertilizer unit, row crop cultivator, rotary mower, and reel-type mower. I own five attachments.
  When I bought my Kittracks they were in pretty rough shape. A set of cleats were fastened to the steel tracks, but they were badly worn so I removed them. In order to restore the tractors, I disassembled each one and sandblasted and repainted them to their original colors. The process took about six months for each Kittytrack.
  I know of only three other Kittytrack models in the U.S. But I do I have a lot of informative literature on these tractors. (William Griesbach, 1081 55th Ave., Amery, Wis. 54001 ph 715 268-5485)
