In 1832, David Bradley, a young pioneer mechanic and foundryman in Chicago, designed and built a plow that turned its own furrow. Bradley designed this plow specifically with the boggy, heavy, virgin prairie of the Midwest in mind. The success of this plow made David Bradley an important manufacturer of farm equipment.

At first, David Bradley manufactured a wide range of agricultural items, including wagons, rakes, binders, planters and more. As Sears did with many of its popular brands, the company added many other products under the name of David Bradley. By the mid-20th century, the Bradley line swelled to include lawn and garden equipment, chain saws, furniture, barbecue grills and other items.
