Here are some pictures taken at the David Bradley Traveling Museum. If you get a chance to see this trailer on wheels packed with D.B. goodies it is well worth it. They have history on the company with pictures, implements and of course several of our beloved tractors including the Surburan.

I found a brush cutter just about like it, but it's a different brand.

This is my latest find I love the saw and can't wait to try it.
It lives I started taking the flywheel off to clean the points but after getting the cover off i checked for spark and it had spark, then i removed the carb and took it apart and it was like new so i put it all together and put gas in it checked the oil and it started on the second pull.
Someone told me what they thought was the history of this machine I was told it was bought new and parked and never used and that was what prompted me to try to get it running. It might be a true story because the engine oil and transaxle fluids were clean like it was never used the electrode on the plug looked like it was new the carburetor was mint inside and it still had spark. The engine runs perfect no valve noise and it don't smoke, not even a little, well what ever the story is it just went up in value even the gas tank and fuel line is OE and in good shape .

I have put it up for sale I have decided i don't need it or want it for obvious reasons.
Ok im curious, what is it your selling?? The tractor/saw in the picture or something else you have. I know who owns the one in the picture of that post.

The saw you have is the small DB brush unit made in the mid 50's. You could also get a mower head, a generator, and a few other items that worked with this unit. Most of them are not ground drive, but you could buy an optional kit that would give you powered wheels. Yours looks to be in good shape, the only things i see missing in the pic are the blade and the tubing for the air filter that would have run up the handel bars. There are a few people who collect these units, but since they only came in about 3 models you dont get a very big collection going.
There was also a big unit made, that the DB collectors call the" Saw from Hell." That one will hurt you if your not on top of the game. Most of them were powered by a Z or K briggs, had 16" tires and a huge curved iron neck with a saw blade attached it. Like the other 2 units it could either fell or buck trees, at least 20" in dia. They also made a buck table that the saw blade end fit into so you could cut up small limbs and make kindleing with. None of the big units had wheel power, so you had to push the monster from place to place. It weighted as much as the DB walking tractors did.
