I'm looking to sell my DB Handyman but have no idea of the value. It is all there and original, and the motor turns over. I got this from a gentleman who gave me three DB's and implements all I had to do  was drive 236 miles one way to get them. (no brainer) Anyway, I like the larger DB's and do not intend to restore this one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

welcome to this forum. Your Hand(I)man looks like a fairly nice. The prices on these are all over the place, some go as low as $25, others bring over $100. Attachments are kind of the same way, with the ones like an edger or a dump cart usually bringing the high prices.  These were DB's last big push into making a different type of tractor to appeal to the masses, as they were only built from 58 to 62, then when Roper took over they dropped them.  For some reason there don't seem to be but a small hand full of guys that collect  them, so you'd have to find the right person.

 

We would also be glad to see your other DB's, if you would like to post some pictures of them in a new thread.

I'd be interested in buying it if you were closer just to say I played with one.

Being it has the wrong engine, I'd say 75-100. Around here they have no interest, so no demand. I have 3 of the tractors and several attachments.
