Here`s my big Handiman, about 1937. It does a great job plowing, except that it pulls to one side. As you can see I let the chickens borrow it to dig up worms, but I usually need to start it for them!

your tractor is newer than 37 as it has the tube handles and the two speed tranny. That tranny came out first in 1938 models and was used until the end of them. The rider used this same tranny.

love the plymoth rock chickens. The roosters neck feathers make great flies for fishing. We had a couple of roosters growing up with bald necks.

My Gravely train - fun with the family on the frozen lake from a couple of years ago. Got a few weird looks from the snowmobile/ATV crowd.

Decided to take advantage of a nice spring day. I put the acme harrow on the Shaw D2T and work the garden. I have been itching to try it since I brought it home.image.jpeg image.jpeg

no the DB sulkys look like this, no other ones built, you got your choice of hard or soft tires.
