My husband just bought a Shaw Du-All R-5 tractor and so I am trying to help him find any information, parts or pictures I can get. If anyone has information as to a source for parts, please respond. Thank you in advance for any help you might give.

I had never heard of it before. A quick Google search shows it had a very interesting history.
I see the company was sold to Bush Hog in 1962 whwn thw founder of the company retired.

Yep, Shaw was bought by Bush Hog in 62. Shaw started out building gas powered bicycles & kits to fit engines to your own bicycle. They then branched out into lawn mowers & garden tractors. Here is the tiny museum in Galesburg Kansas. It was closed by the time I arrived and had no time to stay to get inside. I took pics through the window. The one Shaw rider was on a stump in front of the lone store in Galesburg.

Here are some Shaw tractor pics. I have no idea as to where to find parts though. The 1st pic below, I pulled off the internet, the other 4 I took at a show in Osgood, Indiana.

Here is a model 5 Shaw unit. Definitely unique! I took these at a show not far from me a few years back.

Here is a link to the "Shawster's Club". May be lots of info there, but I didn't read all yet.

The picture of the model 5 that olcowhand posted is actually an N5. If you look close at the hood, you can see the N stamped in. The N series had a cut down Ford rear end. The R series has gear reduction drop downs from the differential to the wheels. Shaw used a lot of Ford parts so availability depends what you need and what you have. Shaw would buy used parts so not all tractors are the same. Briggs engine parts will also be available. I was in Galesburg for the 100th anniverary in 2003 and got to meet a guy that had spent all his working years at Shaw. It was interesting to hear him describe how they would go out on the pile and drag some differentials and trans in and build tractors out of them. The seat mount/spring on the R series was made from a model A Ford bumper. He said Ford drivetrain parts were scarce within 100 miles of Galesburg because Shaw would pay more than anyone else. This year the national Shaw meet will be held at the Loyalsock PA show Aug 5-7. See the listing in the events forum. What type of parts does the tractor need?

Daniel, I have a complete drive train for a Shaw mower like the one on the stump. I would cut some
one a good deal on it.
