No luck tracking down the snow blade. Big bummer. Good news is that the big ol motor puttered and tried to run. I think it will be fine once I get the fuel system cleaned.

I'm going through mine item by item. Runs good but smokes and leaks oil. Keep us posted on your progress! These Kohler twins as a different breed than the singles.

Thx again for the compliments. Looking forward to using this beast. But it sure is a bit depressing when I search CL and have it looking 1000 miles from me and NOTHING pops up, Ford or Jacobsen. Just to have to keep my eyes and ears peeled!

Try finding a Gravely 24G accessory, I doubt there is one for sale in the country!

There is not much to go on this machine, but, I really enjoy cutting grass with it!!

Yea, seat time is limited. It will do WAY over 2 acres an hour, if there are not too many turn arounds.

 

The bigger advantage is the quality of cut, that deck is very special, the machine can groom a pasture, and make it look like a lawn.

 

I wish I had some other attachments, but, that is life!!  :D

I'll have to keep an eye out. What part of the country are you in? Lots of Gravely around here but can't say I have seen a 24G though.

I am near Roanoke VA, VERY few 24G's pop up, when they do, the price for the tractor and mower can go north of $3500 if in good shape.

 

Therefore, I baby my machine. I only feed it non-ethanol, LOL.
