New member here. Thought I'd post some pics of my DB Suburbans. Thanks for having a great Forum! Rick



917.60622

This one's 917.60629 with the 7HP model 19 engine. I'm a big fan of the model 19's.

Here's a 143302 being prepared for repowering an old gold coloured DB Sub. with an unknown number. (tag was missing) but it's between 601 and 619 and was recoil start as far as I can tell. Hope to get back to rebuilding the tractor during the coming cold weather.

nice tractor. The 622 is the cross over tractor. Its the first model to be painted in the new colors, and the last model to use the oval hood. The hood its self is special, as only one other tractor used that same hood.

I prefer the 5.75 engine has it has a quicker rpm responce and the whole tractor with the Alumimun engine weighs less.

What the model # of the sickel mower??

yes they are nice motors. this one runs like a dream. I love using it for cultivating since it's so light. turns quickly with a tight radius too. Almost seems like power steering with the light motor. I'll bet it weighs half or less than the model 19.

What the model # of the sickel mower??


Sickle was missing the tag but is in pretty good shape. I'm guessing it's a 60656. Has the wooden pitman arm.

Thanks IWLBCNU! If you find a good paint match please let us know. Did you decals yet? I got some for my gold Sub project.

Ok the tag for a sickle unist is on the front top side of the mule drive. I can see a tag in the picture, but some of the mower units also had one there. The drive for the sickle is differnt than the one for the mower., but it would probally work. As far i know none of the sickles have there tags on the sickle unit itself, and only some of the mowing decks have theres on the deck.

Nice DB in the pictures Ricky. I had an old McCulloch generator with a 7HP Briggs on it that was almost identical to the engine in the pictures. Ran like a top and almost always started on the first pull.
