It's a '62 David Bradley (Sears) Suburban # 917.60622. It has been poorly repainted, but it looks mostly complete and unmolested, however since this is the first one I've seen up close I really don't know. Does anyone know where I could source a manual, or maybe a breakdown for it? Or really any info at all, since this is a new one on us.
The original Briggs engine is loose, but no compression. I'd guess a stuck valve, we'll see. The transaxle was stuck, but it does turn now... it's full of ATF now soaking good. The whole tractor was a flood victim back when Katrina hit. Tires show a little rot, but all hold air.
Anyway, on to the pics...

i used to have one with hand brakes i love to find another one but i just dont see them often.
Same here, mine had the hand brakes. I've likely said it in other posts, but I'm still kicking myself for trading her off. I gotta ask Jody what he did with it. I know he traded it later, but I'd love to track it down. I put hydraulics on mine & 3pt lift. They will work hard, I'm telling ya! Just don't try to back too heavy a load up....that friction reverse is good for tractor only, but a heavy load is too much for it. Forward it'll pull a tank! You'll likely have to take the clutch pulleys off to clean everything up good. Neat clutch system.

It is a neat little machine, that's for sure.

but options and upgrades were many in those days.
Looks like original colors, and the newer cast grill.
Search the tractor name, and then the numbers, you'll find plenty.
Sears still carries some seals and bushings for it.
Watch out for left handed threads on the left front tire.
