1. If Your Pedal Tractor was made after 1963, there will be a model number on most castings. Always check the casting between the pedal assembly and rear axle hub for a Model Number. Examples: DTC 65 (Deere Tractor Cycle 1965), Model 404 (IH 1066 or 1086), F 68 (Ford 1968)
2. Any pedal tractor manufactured prior to 1963 was made by the ESKA Company and will say only "Made in USA". Here are some tips on how to identify them:
a. Does you tractor have a shifter lever?
b. If so, does it have fuel caps on top of the hood?
c. If no shifter, a place for a rubber muffler or one cast in?
d. Is your steering shaft exposed?
e. What is written on your tires, front and rear?
f. Is the front steering axle on your tractor, narrow or wide?
g. What color is your tractor painted?
h. Any other distinguishing thing about the tractor?
