Anyone else have a genuine DB hay rake? This is the only one I've seen for a walk behind model. I bought a heaping pickup load of DB walk behind stuff in 2002 and the sulky and rake combo was part of that deal.

I was at a lawn and garden junkyard yesterday and the owner told me he had a buzz saw attachment for a two wheel david bradly. He said he keeps it in a steel building down the road were he keeps the "good stuff". He said next time I'm out there he'd bring me down there to see what he has in the building and I'll get pictures.

That"s a neat implement! I have only seen them in the advertisements, never as a real live implement. Nice rig you have there.

My guess would be an air compressor.

We have a member of our club that has a VERY complete collection of DB stuff. He has a rig almost exactly like this. He also has the air compressor, discs, plows etc. I will be seeing him this weekend at our tractor tour. We're going about 25 miles at 10 MPH.. he modified a DB & Sulky rig to keep up. It's impressive, probably hard on the kidneys, but impressive.

It's sure amazing all the different and unique attachments that were available on the different brands years ago.

Haveing not seen a wide veriety of D-B impliments, I have to say the wildest one I've seen is the vertical shaft brush/tree saw.
I saw one on a D-B tractor and thought it was some kind of seriously dangerous home made attachment.
The tractor was standing in the trees on an old estate of an in-laws I was cleaning up. I could have had it for the hauling but, didn't have any interest in it at the time. Now I wish I had it. Ohh well...
I can't help but think of the other D-B impliments that may have been lurking in the weeds and woods that were missed because I wasn't looking for that kind of stuff at the time.

I was at a yard sale and found a David Bradley walk behind and it had a sickle bar attachment,cultivator,plow, and disc harrow. The motor was not frozen and the impliments looked great. he said that it needed a fuel bowl and it would run. From what I could tell he was right. What would that total package cost or be a fair/good price to offer.
