    Gravely® Introduces Snow Blower Attachment for Pro-QXT™ Two-Wheeled Tractor​

    Brillion, Wis. (June 24, 2016) – Gravely® today announced a new attachment for its Pro-QXT™ Tractor, the new two wheeled tractor that was unveiled at the 2015 GIE + Expo Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., in October. The new attachment, a snow blower head, combines all of the industry-leading snow features that Gravely’s sister brand Ariens is known for with Gravely’s rich heritage manufacturing two-wheeled tractors.

    A legacy product for Gravely, the Pro-QXT Tractor is designed for commercial, industrial and government facilities maintenance managers whose crews manage properties in urban environments. The Pro-QXT is a compact, walk-behind tractor with multiple attachments for completing a variety of tasks with a single machine.

    The new two-stage snow blower attachment has a 32-inch clearing width and a 21-inch housing height, with a throwing distance of up to 60 feet. Like most of the Ariens line of Sno-Thro® units, the Pro-QXT’s snow blower attachment has a cast iron gear case and commercial skid shoes for added durability.

    The snow blower attachment also has a remote deflector control, an ice drill chute rotation and an all-steel, adjustable scraper bar for comfort and ease-of use. The snow blower head comes with a one-year commercial warranty.

    “Benjamin Gravely launched our brand when he invented the revolutionary motor plow two-wheeled tractor in 1916, and we’re thrilled to have brought back this iconic product in celebration of our 100-year anniversary,” said Gravely Senior Product Manager Trae Humphries. “With the new snow blower head attachment, the machine is even more versatile. We’re excited to be able to incorporate the snow manufacturing expertise from Ariens, and to bring that innovation to the Gravely brand with this all-new product.”

    QXT stands for “quick-attach”, as the Pro-QXT Tractor features a self-aligning one person attachment change over that allows an operator of any size to quickly and seamlessly change out attachments without the need for additional help. A folding stand is integrated for operators to use when the tractor is not attached to anything.

    In addition, the Pro-QXT integrates the Rapid™ Control System with variable speed control that allows the operator to change direction quickly, increasing productivity. The combination of the Rapid Control System and intuitive power steering results in smooth, seamless operation.

    The heavy-duty Pro-QXT Tractor is built for commercial use, with a clutched hydraulic system allowing for easy starting in extreme cold weather conditions, integrated engine fan debris cutter, trailer tie downs and adequate clearance for maneuvering around trailers and curbs.

    The Pro-QXT is designed to transition through all seasons and conditions, from extreme hot to extreme cold, without the need to alter the tractor. It features an all-season Subaru® engine with 12-volt electric start and recoil assist, providing optimal performance in any weather condition.

    Two additional attachments are also available for the Pro-QXT: a 44-inch Power Brush and a 48-inch blade. The blade attachment is also available with an optional poly scraper edge, and both attachments come with a one-year limited warranty.

    The snow blower attachment for the Pro-QXT Tractor will be available in authorized Gravely dealerships only beginning in October 2016. For more information, visit www.gravely.com.
