I am going to Nominate 'Rusty' ...again .
He is a 1959 David Bradley Suburban Model#917-60601 SN3658
Recoil start 5.75 HP Briggs and Stratton Horiz shaft . Model 143302 type502527 SN 17690
I am very proud of this tractor .
When I got him Dec. 2014 this was a pretty rough looking machine , but I could see that it had a lot of potential .
I worked my magic , with a lot of help from my Uncle and by mid-summer 2015 we had this machine refurbished and fully functional.
At this point he won the Vote for T.of M. for Sept. 2015 on GTTalk forums in the 'open' category .
He was prepared for his first working season , outfitted with a 42" dozer blade and chains .
After some adjustments and tinkering with belt tensions and clutch settings he was doing what was intended .
He will be sporting a set of wheel weights this year and though I don't have a lot of driveway , Rusty makes it fun to clear the snow .
He will be back to doing what he loves most , working at his primary function ... snow removal !
