Lots of David Bradley stuff at Rochester this week-end. Most I've ever seen in one place. AND, the most Graham-Bradleys I've ever seen too and also the Sears Economy Big tractors. Here's some pictures. One Tri-trac had a sicle mower, but missed most of it in pix, sorry. He had a Tire that was brand new in 1960 on a stand, a trailer full of history of the mark and many sample models. You guys may know him, forget the name at moment.

No, that's the Economy from Sears there. He had about six at show, two trailers full of them. They were just mixed in with G-Brad's because they were Sears sold.

Great pictures, thanks! I do see one walk behind on the trailer with steel wheels. I believe the Suburban has different rear

wheel weights than mine.

 

The tire for a tritrac he has on display is from 1960...that would have been about the end of the run for tritracs, right?

i know all the Db guys as they are part of the group that shows at Kankakee IL, the home of the David Bradley.

 

The traveling muscem is owned by Al.

 

Yes the DB tractor has optional steel wheels starting in 1946. They came from the older Handiman jr models before the war.

 

The suburban weights in the picture are the orginal style, ones with out the notch, notched weight were made after 1965.

 

It was a pretty good show, all the wimps left when it rained, later the sun came back out and we returned to normal. We got a little rain at the start of Sunday, but the rest of the day was prefect.
