I'm retired from almost 30 years in military/ law enforcement and back in the states after 5 years in the middle east/ central asia. The wife and I are getting ready to farm our family farm in East Tenn and I'm looking for a DB. Any help on finding a walk behind tractor and attachments would be most appreciated!!!

Welcome I have a couple of these, they are addictive. Just look around you can find them on CL or eBay all the time. What options are you looking for?

I'm mostly looking for a plow and cultivators. I'm kind of new to small tractors and walk behinds, I have a John Deere 345 mower and I have just seen garden tractors plowing on another site this evening. Didn't know that was an option.

It's amazing how much work you can do with one. At this years PA Plow Day, they turned over 80 acres with 200 tractors and that was "play for a while, take a break, shoot the bull, go plow again" plowing.

If you go into the picture galleries and look at the plow day event pictures, you'll get the idea.

Good luck finding your DB or whatever you finally decide to purchase, and welcome to the addiction.

I think the fella was saying "Wizard". It was sold by Western Auto Stores, I think manufactured by Bolens (correct me here guys)

They were very capable machines and have pulled more than one guy off his feet by the end of the day.

The plow is probably a 6", so you'll only get 3-4 inches of furrow depth, but that's plenty in most cases.

Looking forward to the pictures!

Yep it's a Wizard by Western Auto not a Wizzer, I dont hear as well as I once did. Too many days on the firing range, too many too close explosions... I have it home though and tomorrow I'll start looking at it.
It has a gear reduction Briggs that has seen better days, leaking around the head, no air filter and it smokes. I may repower it while I rebuild the Briggs so I can get in a late crop this year, (it also came with an extra engine). Good winter project! All this while we are completely rebuilding a house. Good thing I have an understanding wife. I still want a David Bradley but I have time to look around. I'll get pics uploaded soon
