I found a old farmer that has a old DB not sure of year. It has wheel weights and a garden plow and possibly 2 sickle mower heads. I will know more come first of week. I know it don't have original engine cause he said the gas tank was on engine and the original was still on the mount on frame. And the hood is still attached. Another bonus is it has bar treaded tires and he says still holds air.

So is it worth 150.00 ........lol

I would think it would depend how rusty everything was . Tractor prices vary in different parts of the country  , around where I live they run on the high side . Have you been watching DB prices in your area ? My first one  I paid $200 for one with wheel weights and sickle bar , non original engine . I've gotten better ones for same or less since .

There isnt any for sale around here. Everything seems to be in PA. The fellow I got my 56 from promised me a sickle mower and some other attachments and then scrapped them. He even had a couple tri tracks. And some that were just a tree and brush saw and reel type mowers but they were a powered unit them selves. Not actually an attachment.

There are a lot in Pa but the problem is that they aren't very desirable here. Walkbehinds take forever to sell and usually they sell for less than 100. I actually have an old David Bradley that I need to go pick up some day. I've had it for a few years now and just haven't felt the need to get it yet.

Sorry, I have a pretty strict policy of not selling anything.  I have traded some of the items in that picture away.  That DB stuff is all crammed into a small building and hard to get to,  but judging by that picture from several years back, I have enough duplicates of sickles and plows that I could spare one of each.   If you want them I'll put your name on them - no charge.

Well I picked it up this morning. No mower heads. But maybe a added bouns. 306128 type model N briggs. But the engine has its own gas tank on top of the engine. The tank has a David Bradley decal on the end. But the tractor has its own gas tank. The model number of tractor is a 5752. Says its suposed to have this engine on it. The previous owner said they took this engine off an old sheep shear (?). But again it has a DB gas tank on it. I will post pics in a few.

You have the second model made. The first was a 5751.The n model Briggs may be from a 57561 which was the first non-hooded tractor.
