I've have seen that "claw" on another, known DB deck. I am assuming they aren't blowing smoke, and they have some actual knowledge of its origin.

Unusual piece, be a hoot to run.

Well it looks like a Tri-Cut mower, but its way bigger than the ones DB made in the 60's. They also never built any hydro units back then. The only engine choice would have been a 5.75 hp brigg with electric starter. My quess its something from the early 70's built on the same basic platform. That  type of mower came from the Newark Ohio compamy that owned DB after Sears was forced to sell off the company. Newark only owned the plant for a year, then Roper took over until the end in 1984. The plant was burned down somehow in 1986, the cause was never really discovered.

definately something you dont see everyday it looks pretty cool and in my limited knowledge on david bradley or whatever it may be id say not too bad on price, look at the price on anything else with a 50+ inch deck running or not. if it was a little closer id jump on it
