a little plowing this afternoon with tractor that have been in the shed all winter. Yes i relise that this is the walk behind section, but both are DB's. The walker is a model 99, with a 2 1/2 hp briggs, pulling a 6" plow and the other is a 628 model Suburban, with a 6hp briggs, pulling an 8" plow. It was 85 today, so its plenty warm and plenty early to be plowing.

Hey, thanks for the pictures! I did a little dirt turning myself this weekend, really good to see the D B's working.

I need to talk you into taking a couple of pictures of that muffler and the belt routing on the 628 sometime.

032.JPG 033.JPG 034.JPG 035.JPG ok thats fairly easy. id have to take all the sheilds off to get the whole picture on the belts, but theres nothing behind it but the idler pulley, and the top of the belt runs under it.

Neat Jeff, ironicly me and Kevin pulled out his model 99 with the Spike tooth harrow and scarified the driveway, then after a few hours of dry time we raked and sealed it in with the early red roller without the scraper bar, came out nice, i started my 104, put on a new belt and drove it around to stretch it's legs, will be plowing with it in a month or so i hope.
Thanks for the pic's, i don't mind the riders, i love seeing them too, looking forwards to the vid.

Lauber1, nice photo's showing you guys having fun. Why is the hood up in the one picture, is it to help cool the engine?

No i was walking it out to the garden for the third time. The first time i want to adjust the plow but the rod wouldnt turn, so back to the shop for some PB and a little pipe wrenching.
The second time i got out there and the camrea battery went dead......two hours of charging later.
The last time i didnt start it, just pushed it out and because the motor is a replacement unit, it dont have a choke pull out the bottom like the orginal, you have to lift the hood to get at it. I started it up at the end and let her take a few pictures before i got tried of walking and got out the rider and a real plow. I dont have any weights for the DB and the clutch was slipping a little so i just went to the backup source of power.
I didnt plow the whole garden as it was close to 7pm and was going to get dark. ill finish it up next week and then get out some other toys for the walkers and maybe the monster 3pt roto-spader on one of the Suburbans. Maybe, just maybe ill get out the roller packer on a 35 or 37 Handiman and play with it. Ill have to have my son come over and make us some vid's of all these units.

I need to get one of those mufflers. My Model 8 has a broken exhaust port that I am having grazed back on. I am trying to buy a Model N for my other DB.

I keep all my funnels in a plastic 5 gallon bucket by the shop door. Every once in a while, one will disappear for a bit, then magically reappear elsewhere. So the fairies are active all over.

Ok went back though the files here and the maker of the muffler is: Doug Weingart, Bridgman, MI I got his phone number that i wont post here if someone is interested in getting one or some of the other DB repo items he makes. Pm me if you want the details on this item.
