Jim Edwins was the man behind the J. I. Edwins Company in Issaquah, Washington. The firm was best known for the production of the “Trooper”, a competitor to the better-known Tote Gote. They’re rare finds nowadays, and this one is worthy of consideration as it’s the harder-to-find “Big Boy” model with optional tandem seat and it’s said to run great!
Troopers were available with Briggs and Stratton motors that put out 3, 4, 6, or 7 horsepower. The two bigger motors were also offered in “Big Boy” models which had beefier rear tires and extra load capacity. The best site for information on Tule is Tule Trooperville USA – it’s a wonderful resource and even if you’re only moderately interested in this scoot it’s worth a visit just to see the vintage ads and brochures.
The seller doesn’t give much information but he/she loves the word “great”: “Tule Trooper Runs Great! Great condition.
7 HP Briggs. Tires great.” Find this Tule Trooper for sale here on Craigslist in Warwick, Pennsylvania for $950.
