I am always looking for something DB related to add into the stable !

Found this about 75 Miles away from me and had to go and see it , I made an offer and it was on the trailer home.

Just got it in the driveway !!

Now the reason I really went down there today (saw it on C/L just this morn 8AM)was because of a couple things that are not quite original to these machines. :D

Rusty' and I have been looking for the aftermarket fenders for awhile and this has them. Plus the hubcaps aren't stock I don't believe .

It is a 1963 725' 917-60629 model# , the motor is not original but a nice replacement '170402'.  . I am pleased with the thing .

It has the complete 3point hitch set-up . It has a weak spark , probably just needs to be cleaned on the points and flywheel , good compression . Been sitting a couple 3 years.

This will make a nice addition to my DBs . :thumbs:

Well , after playing around with this tractor ,fixing the motor so it runs good and getting the belts right this summer I decided to hook up my dozer blade and back blade on it for winter.

We had about 5" of snow over the weekend and I tried it out !! 

Wow , now this is a great machine , it is fast and it has power to push. 

Rusty was good and all , but I am very impressed with how this 7.25 works compared with the 5.75 .

A real bargain seeing as I mostly bought it for the fenders.  :D

I was thinking more like 'Speedy' .. it is pretty fast !  :smilewink:

The variable speed controller works like a champ.
