Anybody know anything about Bready tractors, built in Solon, OH? I'm trying to restore one, and can't find much info about it. It's a two wheeled walk behind unit with a 1 1/2 HP Clinton engine that slides to engage the drive belt. I'd be interested in locating implements for it, if anyone has one.
Good Luck and God Bless

I am not familiar with them and I don't know if anyone else knows about them or not. I know we have quite a few guys that have walk behinds of various brands. Do you think you would be able to use implements from a different brand if you can't find any original implements?

Never heard of them either. I searched for images, & they built GT's too! The 4 wheeler was built between 58 & 65, the 2 wheeler is a 1932

Dont know much about the 2wheelers, but I have a few 4 wheelers. The stuff is out there, but the problem is, Bready is such a unknown brand, that people dont know what they have. Just some "Old attachment" sitting in a barn.... I would sudjest doing a lot of searching for Pic's, and study them all... that way when you trip over some odd ball atachment, you will know its for your tractor.

Nice find. That looks to be in pretty good shape.  Any idea what year it is?
