Nice tractor!
I dont think I have ever seen a Reel on a David Bradley before. I take it they are probably rare?

The tractor and mower look great ! Is this a start of collecting DBs or was it just this model you didn't have ? Al

This is my first DB and if I run across a good deal it may not be my last (really want a TriTrac). The reel mower is one of the more rare attachments, but they are not extremely rare. I have seen several in the past few months but none in working condition. I really didn't think I would win the auction, I placed one initial bid of $295 and knew I would be out bid and wasn't going any higher. Well no one else wanted it and I got it for that. The PO told me the reel mower alone would be worth that. Its all original and runs great. Fired up on the firest pull. I couldn't be happier. Now I guess I'll see what else I can find, maybe sale my POND walker and look for an RJ, who knows. Thanks for the replies.

That's awesome! That's probably the best and cheapest way to go versus piecing them back together.

good catch! I've seen reel mowers bring almost that much alone. And looks like you got some good original Knobby tires too!
