The link above was formerly to Gary Treible's excellent web site on DB history and machinery. Unfortunately, the site is no longer maintained, and it appears that the account has been suspended. I offer as an alternative my own site at David Bradley tractors and implements

Man thats like end of life for a lot of DB collectors, as that was one of the greatest list of facts created. I know Nelson personally and his site and CD's are first rate. You can learn a boat load of stuff in just a few hours, as this site is full of well reseached factual items. I use it all the time as a refencance tool. I had always planned to get all my stuff on a CD for the Suburban riders, but never knew enough about how to make a pdf. But i've gotten smart in the old age, and now am planning on uploading my entire collection of manuals( not just the DB ones) to the files of this site so they can be free to all comers. This is something i've been very big on for yrs. Info should be free to the masses, not something you have to pay somebody to give you a poor copy of. I have sent out over a 100 manual copies to people overthe yrs for free, but its getting kind of expenseive anymore, so i see this place as the best way to help others who are in need of critical info to get there tractors running, or just want to know what might have came with it. It will take me a while to get all the stuff uploaded, but in the coming months there will be a huge advantage to coming into this site for help.
