Earlier this year I posted some images of my 1950 DB tractor. 

After having spent the entire summer on other projects I've finally finished painting the various implements.

 

Today I manufactured a new shoe for my snow plow, (one was missing) and then cleaned and primed several of the different cultivator shovels that I have. I still have several to go but at least I've started on them.

 

Anyway, here's a pic of the various implements and the tractor. The snow plow is mounted and ready for winter. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm really ready for a 6" snow storm so that I can try this out.

 

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. 60 degrees here today but we're supposed to get about 2" of rain tonight and tomorrow.

Thanks guys....I'm proud of the herd. 

 

Also, here's a pic of the kill switch that I mounted to the handlebars. I decided to go with a push/pull switch to try to stay with the time period of the tractor. It's pretty nice knowing that I have the option of killing the engine by simply pulling up on the button.

Great looking tractor and implements. Safety kill is also a good idea, sure beats chasing it around until it runs out of gas... :D
If it were mine, I would also be looking forward to a snowfall.

It all looks great! I'm sure you'll get that snow you're wishing for.

Now all you will need is an electric starter and you'll be set.

Might be an idea to try and find a set of tire chains to fit it. I can remember when I was probably 8-9 years old, straddling the hood, and feet resting on the snow blade of our DB for extra weight, and it had wheel weights AND chains. You may do alright in a dry snow, but thinking a heavy wet snow will give you extra sidedraft. That's the reason I was riding on the hood.

 

  Lordy, some of the things we did, and got by without getting hurt...

DJ54....

 

I do have a set of chains for the tractor. I was hoping I wouldn't have to put them on but it sounds like I might need to.

I guess I'll start fighting them sometime tomorrow. I hate putting on tire chains.

 

Thanks for the heads up.
