My 1939 Shaw D3T with CB42 cutter bar. The detail photos are for Travis so he can fix his D2T. When you rotate the control handles, you shift the cultivator tool plates to the right or left. When you pull back on a control handle, you apply the power turn brake on the side you pull back. Pull the right handle and the tractor turns right. The long lever with the ratchet teeth slides the engine forward to tighten the drive belt. A light pull backwards, and a heavy spring pulls the engine back to release the clutch. Transmission is a modified Model
A Ford with 3 forward and one reverse speed. Engine is a Briggs Model K. The picture of the steel wheel with the pyramid lugs is on a
D5T. These should be the type of lugs on Travis's D2T. His lugs are from a Gravely Model D. The Shaw lugs were made of a poor grade of cast iron and are commonly found broken. These are really nice machines to operate especially with the rubber tires. I have over 55 years experience with my D4T that my Dad bought for me when I was 12 years old.
