I have an unusual mower that came with my 1st DB. It is a rotary mower like a push lawn mower.

The 91757596 mower seems like to be a cumbersome method to trim grass vs the sickle bar or any other mower.

I have pics. Just need to figure out how to post.

I suspect it is best left for shows rather than actual use to demonstrate as a rare implement for the David Bradleys.

Seems a second post has to be done to get full privledges. So here is no. 2. Pics should follow.

Divine intervention? I order ebay carb kit for my 5751 last week. At flea market yesterday/Saturday, I spotted nos carb kit in a box of nos BS parts. Got the kit for $1. Then seller basically gave me the box with dozens of partts for the Model 6 and 19. It seems the Lord wants my 5751 and Big 5 (917575100) tractors show ready next month..

Someone used the deck to mow a bit. Seems he hit something from the 2" piece chipped out. I will TIG that in later.

That is an unusual one for sure.  You see a lot of sickle mowers, but not many decks like that.  I suppose you are right, they were cumbersome, and, if you think about the era Bradleys were made, reel mowers and sickle mowers were still the thing to have.

 

Welcome to the forum.  Sounds like you are our type of guy already.  I heard plurals as far as Bradleys go!

nice to find one of them. There not really rare, as there are several around the DB circles. Most of them have a chunk missing out the edge from hitting objects. They made a kit that makes  the front wheels castors, instead of fixed. Just about all the major walk-behind makers had a deck similar to this. I had one for a Simp, still have one for a Bolens, and would have one, with the castors.  for the DB if I'd drive the 5 hrs to pick it up.

Caster kit makes sense. The curent setup causes scrubbing of the lawn on turns.

I saw 2 manuals for other mowers. None had my model #.

I assumed the design sucked and db dropped it quickly.

part of the reason your not finding a rotary mower under that number is because its the number for a sickle mower. looks like the tags on the wrong attachment.
