I have a Bolens 1253, with a sleeve hitch.

Can this plow be made to work with it?

Is the hitch missing something? It looks like it would just flop around as it is.

Any ideas on where to get a Coulter for it?

Hello, all David Bradley walk behind tractor and riding tractors come with a coulter mounted just in frount of the plow share, if you need one i may know of someone who has a spare to sell depending on the type you have, if you can provide a picture of the plow itself i will be able to help, David Bradley made a lot of Walk Behind garden tractor plows and some riding garden tractor plows, the convertion to riding type of plow really is not that hard if you have a good strong welder, mecanical skills, good steel and away to cut the steel but i would advice you to buy a Brinly sleeve hitch plow whitch there are plenty of instead of converting the rarer David Bradley plow, but in the end it is up to you.

I think tag should read 917.57525. It would be for behind a David Bradley walk behind.

If You want me to, I can move your post into the 2 wheel section, they probably can tell you what tractor it was supposed to follow.

Looks as though it has been modified expertly for a Slot Hitch. If you want I will take it off your hands, great modification, and I have Slot Hitches it can fit.

Oh, the pictures just showed up after you posted your responce MH81, i see them now and no the pow has already been heavly modified, the saddle bar rollers has been cut off and the main beam trimed around 8 inches shorter and the bracket that holds the coulter has been cut off, yes as just as wvbuzzmaster has stated it can be hitched to a slot hitch already.

The plow was orginally built to fit on any of the DB walkers. for the big hp tractors like the 5.6 and the big 5, there was an 8" model that could have been purchased. The plow in the photo is completely worthless to a DB collector, other than the frog, share, landside, and mouldboard parts. It will how ever make a good start to something a 4 wheeled tractor could use. The only trick is getting the furrow inline with the new tractors center of draft, so it will pull easier and plow properly.
