I would like to nominate my 1952 DB
Super Power, Then I bought it it had no motor, no tires, and the implements were in bad shape. This was originally owned by the Cherokee Co Road Dept, here in Ok. It was sold at auction years ago. The person I bought it from, was the winner of the auction. At that time it still had the original motor on it. And when the motor went bad He had quit using it, and stored it in his barn.
I completely dissembled everything, had parts of it sandblasted, I primed, and painted it. I had to replace part of the clutch since it was broken. Added a Briggs Model 8 motor, but the exhaust port was broken in the block so I had to brazed back in, and new 6X16 Ag tires and tubes. I also got a plow, disc, and cultivator with it. The implements were in just as bad of shape as the tractor was, the crank in the plow was frozen, the disc had a piece missing from one of the discs, and the cultivator had been run over and bent up. I had the disc repaired and the cultivator straightened.
The mower that is on it now came with another tractor that I own. I use this to plow with, I recently had a chance to use the disc, and I plan to use the cultivator in the garden this year. I currently am working on replacing the sections and guards on the mower, to return it back to working condition.
This model of the David Bradley Walk Behind is 917.57560 "Super Power" and was manufactured from 1951 to 1953 and was powered by a Briggs and Stratton 500.702052 @ 2-1/4 hp (early) or 500.108022 @ 2-1/2 hp (late), this tractor has the early style motor on it. The name Super Power comes from the 30% increase in HP from the earlier models.
