A friend dropped this off today.  He just couldn't let it get buried.  A hole in the block but an 8 horse Briggs should be pretty easy to find.  Anyone have one of these?  Any experience with how they handle?

Whoa! I've never seen one of those but it sure looks like a nice strong machine. I can't believe someone would scrap something like that!!

I got to see one of those some time back and they are truly one beast of a machine,it was the most heavy duty tiller I've ever laid eyes on,the guy had already sold it or it would have come home with me. If it was me I'd surely buy my friend a 12 pack of his favorite beverage for sending it my way! Great find!!

Not a bad looking backwards snowblower.. Nothing like a Troy-Built Horse... Those things are beasts as well as the Gravely. Neighbor had one . No ground clearance and wasn't as heavy as it looked. But it did till nice until he broke the worm drive box. Then he too bought a Troy-Built .
