|In July 1945 this ad appeared in "Country Gentlemen" magazine. The sheet metal is the same as the first antique rototiller I acquired a B-1-3. The text below the drawing says "Graham-Paige to make ROTOTILLERS! Only in "Walking Models" at First; Larger tractor-Drawn types to Come!"|
Graham-Paige Motors Corp. in 1945 licensed Graham-Paige, Farm Equipment Division, Willow Run, Mich. to manufacture a design based on the B-series still using the Rototiller trade mark.
Continuing the model numbering started by Rototiller of a new number each year. Except for the war years 1943-44.
This 1945 Graham-Paige ad shows a model B-1-4. Note this is a B-1-3 (see the slide controls on the handlebars) with the sheet metal and recoil starter found on the B-1-6.
I have not seen any reference to an B-1-5.
