I thought I'd introduce myself and my new toy. I'm from Concord, NC and former Air Force (4 years). I bought a David Bradley a couple of weeks ago with the intentions of using it to create a garden. I bought it off Craigslist for a decent price. It is a 1950 model with a 1985 Briggs and Stratton 3.5hp motor. I've changed the spark plug, added new belt, added sticker to the gas tank, added new engine bolts (it only had 2), added new pin for front clip, flipped the clutch disc, added new muffler, and changed the oil.
The David Bradley came with a potato plow and a friends father is going to give me a cultivator for free. I'm really wanting to get a turn plow and I'm having the hardest time finding one. I'm going to go to the Threshers Reunion Saturday and see if I can find anything there. It's a huge tractor show they have in Denton, NC. I also found a disc at my grandpa's (he's passed away) that he use to use that is a David Bradley disc. Of course the part that goes to the front of the David Bradley is chopped off. I'll have to do some fabrication to get it to work.
I also made the David Bradley parking only sign you see in the background of the pictures. I bought the sticker and sign off ebay, then made the pole from a old curtain rod. I then painted the curtain rod silver.
