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.

Hey guys this is perfect. I was planning on posting this one today.  It is at a museum.

I was just thinking this tractor was a Shaw. By the one just posted- my guess is right.

Does anyone know what model?

Thanks,

Candy

Here's a different twist to walk behind of the day. This is a Vaughan E series carcass being used as a mailbox stand. I think this is ironic since the Vaughan logo was "A Vaughan is built to roll and roll where others stall and dig a hole"

Beautiful bit of irony, and I do love irony.

Here`s my New Britain, still waiting to be worked on. I grew up about 20 miles from where this was made, and it took me 20 years to finally find one! I`ve had it running, but the compression is pretty low, the clutch doesn`t engage, and the handles are missing, but hopefully next winter I`ll start on it. I usually always go to the Dublin, N.H. engine show every year, one year I missed it and later heard about a weird 2 cylinder walk behind that was there. I heard it was a New Britain, I tracked it down and eventually traded an engine for it. I knew the guy who had sold it, and the next year there he had a first generation Kinkade that was all original and complete that he had just gotten out of a barn, I went home with that one too!
