It has been a little while since I have been here. I got my garden in & finally got to use the harrow. I am geting use to the old Edko 2 wheeler. The harrow worked great between the rows tearing up the dirt & grass/weeds. Not sure if all of you have seen my home made attachment creation for my Edko... Recently I custom manufactured a dirt sifter that runs off of the old Edko using a bunch of junk around the shop & took me about a week to get it built. I used it for my garden rows ridding them of the weeds/grass roots. Sure makes it easier to keep the rows clean & much easier than sifting by hand...It is powered by the gear reduction of the Edko & mounts to the front of it.... here is a picture of the Edko after using the harrow & my home made dirt sifter. & yes it held up very well after a full day of use sifting dirt...lol.... you will not see another one of these for a 2 wheeler & is pretty much a one of a kind... I have a guard for the drive system & am using a fender off a snapper riding mower but I have not built it yet. Oh by the way, the rattling noise you hear in the video is the lever to release the belt tensioner & brake... it fits loose & rattles. The sifter actually runs quiet when I hold onto the handle.

Al, Congrats on the buy. Now the Tri-Trac will have something to keep it company.

Thanks Doug , now I need to make a list of attachments that I want to get for and maybe even make a soil sifter like Howard made , !! I'll need help on figuring out which attachments will work on this model . There are so many attachments for the DBs .

Didn't take me too long to get a second DB , I got this one today at Jacktown's swap meet .Looked at it yesterday and really didn't need another one , well told my wife wife about it and she said " why didn't you buy it ?" That's all I needed to hear :dancingbanana: It came with the cultivator hooked up and a dirt plow but I'm going to call the fellow to see if he has the mounting arms for the plow . Looks all original , tried a little starting fluid and didn't attempt to fire so I'll have to look at it later . P5200593.JPG

The plow is short and thought it might mount in the rear hitch hole but then I looked at pictures last night and now thinking that's not the correct plow , I'll take a picture of it and get the tractor model # but it looks like a " one piece" handles . Al

today photo is of a model 62 DB and a 110 vator. I got this tractor down east of Salem IL. It was sold as a hoodless special, under Sears" good" classification. It never had a hood, nor handel grips, and the fuel tank was mounted on the engine and not on the tractor. its briggs engine put out 1 3/4 hp, of the model "6" type. It also used the older style spring clutch instead of the ball lock one. For some reason my tractor has a tiller engine on it instead of the correct by the number DB one. The only differnance is the model number ending with 022, instead of 024. Earlier models of this tractor used a round gas tank, side mounted to the engine.
The 110 cultivator is the last of 4 differnt models built. Instead of using the familar notch adjusting handel, it has a pr of cranks to raise/lower the unit. Dont remember where i got it, but it was rusted mess and the cranks took forever to get free'd up. Not easy to see in the picture sorry.


I have a 62 like this that is on my to do list. I plan to get to it after I get my 575135 painted. The guy I bought it from found it at a scrap yard and rescued it. Mine is a series 101 with the side mounted round gas tank, It looks really cool with the side mounted tank.

Thanks for the great thread!

Heres a pic of the Wizard ready for snow, Im going for a bit heavier duty this year, made up a set of chains and 40 lbs of weight on each wheel. I might even go crazy and splurge for metal covering on the plow boards.

You do relise that if you found a blade for a 12aa, ab, etc it would fit right on your tractor? These old Wirards were all built in a Bolens factory, painted and equiped per Western Auto's design. There are some little differances, but most of the attachment from a similar Bolens will fit.
