Whew! The answer is "It depends". Some people seem to get them pretty cheap, others have to pay more. Plus, there are different models of Gravely walkbehind, with the "Standard speed" L or C being perhaps the most common. Then there is the LS which travels at half the standard speed, and the LI which travels at about 3/4 the speed of the L. There is also a version with a 2 speed axle which is called an L-8 or a C-8 and allows a single machine to travel at the "standard speed" or at half the "standard speed". There were also some options such as a governor, highly recommended, and an electric start kit. And since the tractor needs implements to be useful, there is a question of what implements are available. Personally, in North Carolina, I am selling a Gravely L-8 with governor, in good shape that has been rebuilt and repainted, with a 30 inch bush hog deck, a rotary plow, and a sulkey for $900.00. It has been for sale for a while, so it is probably priced a little high. Just a regular L, with no attachments, sitting in the rain? $100 at most. With attachments that still move freely and might be salvagable, perhaps $200. Tell us more about where you are and about the tractor and we'll try to help.
