    Not too long ago I started to get into Gravely tractors after I inherited one from a family friend.

    Both of these tractors are identical except, the one on the left is a 1970 and the one on the right is a 1969. I picked the tractor on the right for $100 locally because the owner had no idea what was wrong with it and could not get it started. I have not had time to work on it yet, but I know it needs a few simple repairs and she should be ready to fire up!


    Over the summer I found a bunch of attachments for my beasts which include:

    40" quick hitch commercial mower deck
    50" quick hitch commercial finish mower
    (2) 32" "new style" quick hitch snowblowers
    28" "old style" quick hitch snowblower
    (2) 48" quick hitch snow/dirt plows
    50" quick hitch adapter to convert belly mower to walk behind
    W-W shredder / grinder

    Here are 2 quick pictures of one of my 32" blowers attached to my tractor:


    Here is a picture of the 28" quick hitch "old style" snowblower I picked up last week:


    Does not look right, does it ? I ran into an issue with some very wet leaves at my girlfriends place, so I piled them up as much as I could with my leaf blower, then stacked them into a pile with my snow / dirt dozer plow blade. Of course I got a funny look from the neighbor but I was able accomplish what I needed to.


    These machines are amazing workhorses and pretty damn easy to work on. The Commercial 12's I have weigh about 460-480lbs /ea so they are not made just for anyone. I had to load my $100 machine which was absolutely dead weight onto my truck with my ramps, and I swear I will never do that again unless I have some sort of mini winch setup. I will be sure to post more pictures of the machines and attachments along with some video's as soon as we get some snowfall.

    I found something like that once that a guy was gonna scrap out, bought it for $20.00. The one I had was a Simplicity tho, had a tiller, mower deck, and a snow plow with it. Yours are pretty cool with those duals.

    Those things are beasts!! Funny i saw this post today...one of my teachers offered me about 8 of them for either cheap money or free. He's got a couple snow blowers, tillers and mowers sitting around for them too....my mom is going to kill me if i bring them home =] i saw a guy using one with a snowblower on it once, i was in shock how much snow it was moving! Sweet gravely's, ive never seen them with the dual wheels before! I like it!
