Hello
Back in the late 60s and early 70s I spent hours and hours and hours playing driving hauling stuff with a few two wheel tractors that my dad had given me. One was yellow I believe it was a David Bradley. The other was a bit bigger hat and it had wood handles.
I have recently grabbed a few of these tractors skeletons really that people were throwing away and I felt for some reason I need to rescue them. I have two land plows and one disc harrow for them.
The two tractors that I have now are the ones that the motor slides forward to tension the belt. I believe I am going to change them so that our use an idler pulley to tension the belt.
What I am confused about is how to attach and properly use the plows and the Heroe I am more interested in possibly using a cultivator eventually. I believe that this winter I will be working on them or one of them.
I have attached a few pictures to show you what I have. If someone has some pictures of how they attach an implement to the back of these and how they work that would be wonderful
thank you
I guess I cannot post the pictures

I was able to view the pictures. They loaded very slowly. Unfortunately I am not familiar with that machine and haven't used a walk behind since 95. The hitch in the seventh picture appears to be a sleeve hitch but the tractors look like they may have had a draw bar. Are you sure that all your pieces are compatible.

Pictures loaded for me, ya looks to be a Sleeve hitch style, but not the tractor. Never had a two wheel tractor. If the tractor and implement were a matched set, would there be a lift for the implement, besides lifting the tractor handles ?  And would there be some sort of float for the implement ? Just wondering. don't know any thing about them.

My old David Bradly with a 6" single bottom had only the handles for lifting the plow. That was a challenge to hold the handles feet of the ground to turn around at the end of the row. While plowing the handles were about 20" of the ground so not good ergonomics either way. It did do a very good job of turning the dirt but not easy. All that said I had no manual or real knowledge or experience with such a machine or with plowing in general. The machine and implements were bought at several garage sales so didn't come as a confirmed set and I put them together by guess.

Only issue with the pics as the link expires Sept. 1st. That leaves us with nothing.
