Hi all! My dad has a wooden cart that he has asked me to help him sell. I'm trying to get some info. on it. It is wood with "wings", a tailgate, a board for a seat with a DB logo, and some sort of bracket for attaching it to the tractor. I have done some searching online but am having trouble finding info. on it. Any help on the age, rarity, and/or approximate value would be helpful. Thank you

I'm guessing you're talking about something that looks like this. 25_dollar_big_5.jpg

This is your manual I think and you would have the flared sides which according to my paperwork is an aftermarket accessory. Attached File  57565.pdf   1.05MB   17 downloads

It's called a GEN 3 HAULING CART and the numbers on your tag should say 917.57565

I'm surprised that something like that is still in good condition. It must be somewhat rare, no?

Please sell that to a collector. I had been looking for one of those for five years starting a decade ago. Gave up the search when I started collecting brands other than David Bradley. If I was still in the market for one I would be making an offer.

From what I can tell from the manual, it appears that these were made in the 50's. Can anyone confirm that?

Can you give me an idea of the value to a serious collector? My dad isn't looking to get top dollar, but he also doesn't want to sell it to someone who will just resell it and make more than he does. Thank you.
