    I found this tractor in my grandfathers shed. I believe is was given to my uncle for Christmas sometime around the 50's. I just would like to get more information about the type of tractor it is and maybe the brand. There is a marking on the tires that says NY-Lint Toys. Everything is metal, the tires are a hard rubber and the engine is a hard plastic. It is about 1 1/2 ft long. Any help with this would be appreciated. I have been researching and I can not seem to find anything like this out there. Not sure if it is missing any parts.

      It's really Nylint, not NY-Lint. Not really sure why this particular grader would have it like that, but it's not particularly uncommon. Nylint and Tonka both made road graders like this for quite a while. And it does appear to be missing the grader blade.

      Thank you so much for your information, I really appreciate it. I am not sure either why there is a dash in between the NY and LINT. Maybe a typo? Thank you again.

      Excuse me, I just read my prior comment again and realized a statement I made could be misinterpreted.. I meant this road grader is not particularly uncommon, not the fact that it reads NY-LINT. That's the way their name appeared prior to sometime in the '60s. They started making this model in 1951.
