I'm a big fan of the David Bradleys and feel there should be more threads on them so today I offer the David Bradley Rotostick. I've only seen two of these and I own both. :D There were four attachments offered for the Rotostick. The tiller, edger, trimmer, and [pictured] snow blower. ENJOY!! Posted Image

Bolens 1000, best I can tell they were made from 1959 through 1961.
cow, that sounds like a good idea! I know you have seen the full pic/description of the car but many here haven't.

Hello, I just stumbled across 3 attachments for the roto-stick at an auction and I am interested in selling them. I have the Edger, Trimmer/Mower, and the Rototiller. These attachments have, what I can see, never been used before. I am interested in selling and I have no idea what they are even worth!?

I can get pictures of them, I am new to this website. How much are these things worth, I picked them up at an auction in a pile of junk. I am pretty sure that they have never been used!

Those DB Rotosticks were very cool items, read about them but I've never actually seen one in person but would love to get my hands on one. Here's a Video of one in action...Pretty Cool but looks like it would be a little tough on the Back for a Tall Person like me.
