I have a david bradley hay rake - and I am having trouble locating the correct teeth. Sloan sells some teeth for the rake but the specs are different than the teeth I have on the rake - ,mine are shorter no hook and the end and the coil is less than two inches. Sloan lists them as DB1 - any ideas where I can find / adapt teeth to fit -Thanks

You might give Moreta a call, 970-351-6400 in Greeley, Co. They handle a lot of iron parts.

We had a DB rake at the farm, but don't remember any extra teeth in the machine shed. Brother finally scrapped it out several years ago.

We had a DB rake when I was home as a 10 year old runt of a kid. Dad moved the levers down on the tongue. I couldn't move them when up on the rake let alone on the tongue. Just made the tongue heavy and in the way when hooking up. To me they seemed like heavy built levers to start with.

I have an A&I Products printout for all rake, baler, and tedder teeth. A&I Products is an aftermarket supplier.

A-DB1 (fits David Brown)
A-531727 (AC)
A-539754 (AC)
A-462978R1 (IH)
A-64562 (Ford/NH)
A-40917 (Ford/NH)
A-107058 (Ford/NH)

The others part #'s I listed look and mount very similarly but are different in certain dimensions. My best guess is that some other teeth may have made their way onto your rake if someone bought from say TSC or the like. Another possibility is that A&I decided to alter the part slightly to make one part fit 2 applications so it may no longer be an exact match to original but will still work in function.

Do some searching on line and see if you can find the "A&I Products rake teeth" in a *.pdf file format. It will have all the pictures and dimensions listed so that you can determine which one you want. Assuming you find that pdf on the web then please post back with a link. I printed my list about 3.5 years ago but I can not find the original source again for some reason.

Thanks for the reply - I am sure that the teeth I have are the ones that came with the rake - I have two different David Bradley rakes from different sources and both have the same teeth - the major hang up is the teeth they have listed have a hook on the end where mine are straight going through the bar to hold them in place.

I just talked to my brother on the farm in ND; he said there might be a few new DB rake teeth still in the old machine shed but it would take awhile to find them if they are still there. He did scrap the rake many years ago as it was worn out in several places.

My Grandad got a DB rake during the war. It was the only rubber tired rake up to the early 60s around home. It was a good rake. I never used it, But dad did a few times.

Kevin, is this the type of tooth you are looking for? We have two DB rakes in the weeds. Would the used teeth be something you can use?

He probably did not move them as they were on the toung from the factory as it was called a tractor rake on the wheel in line model, the offset wheel model that was the cheapest and most popular they were not on the toung tho but on the rake itself. The offset style was the most popular and the only other model wheel in line model that I have seen is the McCormick No. 5 rake and with those you could reach into the fence to pickup the hay where the offset model the wheel would hit the fence first and it would not reach the fence by a foot to pickup the hay.

First we need to determine the model David Bradley rake you have, does it have 4 wheels or is it the 2 wheel parrallel bar rake that was the last model they sold? They would have used different style teeth. Without that information it is impossible to be sure to get the correct style of tooth. Most are aware of the earlier 4 wheel style and do not know they even had the parallel bar rake. And it is very possible that the folks I work with would have it in their catalog, it is not a mainstream company but an Amish supplier. If you would want me to when I get there again check to see but would need a picture with measurements to tell for sure. We sold our 4 wheel offset wheel David Bradley rake back in 1981 so do not remember exactly what they looked like.

Okay if you do not luck out on any of those used teeth then I think the part number that you need from A&I Products would be A-T17350 based on the photo posted in this thread.

A-T17350 dimensions are:
a) 7.125" (tine tip end to bottom of coil spring)
b) 3.750" (Bottom of coil spring to the pin that goes into bar)
c) 2.187" (diameter of the coil spring)

Says it fits Case-IH rake 1953. Again see if you can find the catalog online or look at your dealers picture and dimensions.
