Hi two-step,
The first picture began life as a rotary plow. Then an aftermarket company used a few replacement parts to fashion a log splitter. There is a video on youtube here:

I think the second picture is the sprayer made for the Gravely tractor. Actually, I looked again, there are two attachments on that tractor. The sprayer is mounted out front and uses the tractor PTO to drive the pump. There is also a Blitz fogger tank sitting up above the gas tank on the back of the tractor. The Blitz fogger used heat from the exhaust to vaporize insecticides and spread them.

Great pictures. Love the "Monster Gravelys", although a little weird. Was there any gear reduction on that first pictured tractor? Ground speed would be insane on a standard geared tractor with those tires. Obviously, attachments would be a waste of time unless you wanted to mow the top of a retaining wall from ground level. LOL Maybe trim water sprouts off the top of tree stumps? LOL

If I remember correctly all 3 of the monster units had the gear reduction units on them and they were rotated to give the most height, I didnt ask/see what gearing he was running,,, I did check tire sizes and remember the "wide boy" had gear reduction units axle extensions and 6x12 tires,,, I dont think many, if any standard implements would work on any of em, they were pretty high up, although he was using a cart on the one, that one using the R-4 tires was just massive compared to a "normal" L.
