Picture :dancingbanana: give us Suburban plowing pictures :worshippy1:

well was thinking on plowing with the 2 wheeled ones this yr, the mighty man needs a work out and I got a new WH that I haven't plowed with yet. then theres the 5hp I got last fall and the 99 with a plow already to go. got a plow for the 15F bolens and for the Simplicity "D". ...........hmmm I must have a couple dozen plows sitting around. I don't have one for the big handiman., that's a shame.

That would rock my feeble little world to see you run up the Handiman, been a few sense seeing one up close.

 

You know, now that i think of it, the last time i seen pic's of you plow a garden, you was on a Suburban and your son with the walk behind, bring out the MAN !!

 

 

Or the 99.

Are you saying those tractors are still there?  :dancingbanana:

No - they were just there for the Loyalsock show.

ya we kind of hijacked your thread, sorry. Seeing a plié of DB tractors sitting some place is normal for some of us.

Okay.......so is this for real?

Could I really drive up to Bradley, Illinois and find a bunch of tractors and implements for sale?

According to Google, Bradley is about 3 hours from my home which isn't that big of a drive.

I hate all things Chicago, (those of us in southern Illinois would like to be annexed into Kentucky), but still....

This just might be Nirvana if I could find the reel mower attachment that I've been dreaming about.

Ah, this was a number of years ago, Bradley Ill. is were the walk behinds were mfg'ed so we DB collectors go to were it all stated, kind of a pilgrimage. Have never see such a gathering of all things David Bradley until you have gone there, you would be eleviated.

Plow meets are my favorite.

Okay, so this is a trip that I guess I should plan on someday.

My wife and I will be married 25 years this August....I wonder if she would consider this a "romantic getaway"?

I don't know that I'd be thrilled about just going to see the manufacturing facility but I would love to go into an area where DB tractors and implements are widespread and available. 

Thanks for the "heads-up". I'll have to put this on my bucket list.
