I picked up a DB Harrow at a huge Amish auction today. First one I have seen in my neck of the woods.

It's painted a really dark green but seems to be complete and fully functional Unfortunately it does not have the ID tag. I got it for function rather than restoration; although I may clean it up and repaint it sometime. One more thing on my list I guess. May try to shoot a photo sometime.
The guy also had a DB w/newer motor and Allstate tires (one was on backward), turning plow (incomplete) sicle bar mower, sodbuster plow ( brain freeze, can't remember the real name), and what looked like a rastus plow (cultivator); never saw one of those before.and a non DB dozer blade that had been modified to fit.
The whole lot, including the harrow knocked off at $195.00 but the guy wouldn't let it go, said it would take four hundred to get it all. I walked be a while later and asked if he would sell the harrow alone; he said that he would like to keep it all together. I said, "I understand" but was surprised when he shot me a price as I walked off. I pulled out the cash and brought the harrow home.

Good job at not givin' up on something you really want !!! The sodbuster you talked about was probably a Middle Buster. As far as the tire on backwards I see that alot. As for me, the package deal would have to be a running all original in pretty good shape for 4 "big ones". Glad to hear you got to bring home what you wanted.

Harrow is a good tool to have around, good catch, only thing i ask is to post a pic of it just to make shure it is not the more rarer ones if you are thinking of modifying it for another tractor.

No, I will not be modifying the harrow. I got it to use with one of my DB's.

On another note, do you suppose there is some reason for one tire being put on backward? I just got to wondering; this is such an obvious thing that there might be something more to it than a mistake. Anyone know anything about this?

yes i would agree that most people wouldnt know any better. As traction tires are directional i would think it would struggle to work right.

On the larger tractors: those who use them for tractor rides sometimes turn the tires around so the ride is better going down a paved road at full speed.

Here's the harrow. My daughters cat, Mia, was impressed with it.

And, yes, I am reseeding and working on that part of the lawn. It's under a huge oak tree

Nice lookin' spike harrow !!! On the tire issue, if the traction tires were takin' to a tire shop (Walmart, Discount Tire, ect.) the installer has to know that with the good side of the rim facing up on the tire machine, one tire has to be installed with the lug tread going right and the other with tread going left. If you install both treads running right or left when you put them on the tractor you will have treads in different directions. They don't think of that because installing car or truck tires are different. You either have white letters / walls out or black out. One exception would be specialty tires like V paddle tires on a sand rail. Then you would install two left and two right.
