I would probably go around $150 to $200 on it. Not saying his asking price is too high though. One thing going wrong with it is that it doesn't have the hood. Has the wheel weights though and the cultivator looks to be in good shape.

They look sweet with the hood. You can find hoods fairly easily at tractor shows or auctions. Let me dig through my pics I know I have a pic with one with a hood.

Yep found one.

This one has the hood up but you get the idea of what the hood looks like.

Some of them came without. I believe they had the Clinton engines and were very basic.

Almost sure that is a replacement engine.

At no time did DB ever use a clinton engine. You see alot of them with it, but thier not factory.
The first thing one needs to know about a DB tractor is what model its. There are about 29 differnt models(46-67) of the walking tractors and 21 in the riding ones(58-65) also there are several differnt color groups used over the yrs. By having the model, you can then tell whether it had a hood, what the color would be, what the engine would be, and what features it had, like reverse, slow speed, vari-speed. DB's are the most generic tractor built, as everyone who see a walk-behind seems to think it a DB one.
Looking at the one in the picture, i see a good pair of weight worth about $50, a vator(probally a 524) worth about $30, and a main frame with a wrong engine worth about $25-$50. We'ed need to knowthe wheel size,as 15" are worth a lot more than 16" ones. If one offered $100 you might have a good start to a tractor, again it all depends on what the model is.

From the pics there 16" wheels (gap between weight and bead) the weights are 15" as the holes are slotted for 15 or 16" wheels. 16" weights are not slotted as they will only fit 16" wheels
