I`m going to an auction tomorrow and there is 2 wheel walk behind I can`t find a pic here to ID it. The most distinguishing thing about it is it apparently has a gear box connection in the front for attachments. It comes with a tiller,sickle bar mower and a grader blade all mounted out front. It has a flat hood hood with a lengthwise  crease in the middle to slant to each side and is on a steep angle with the handle bars to the gearbox that sits kind of on top of the front frame. 4 bolt hole attachment to gearbox with about a 6 inch 4 corner spacing. Tiller is attached but looks to be a newer type tiller someone has adapted to the gearbox connection. Sickle and blade appear to be of the same vintage as the 2 wheeler. Engine exhaust come out from under the hood on the right side. I can see a nameplate on upper handle bar area but can`t read it in pic. I know that's not much info but am hoping some might know what it is and any info on its worth and abilities. It has the expected surface rust but appears to be all together in pretty good shape. I`ll try to get pic up later but have to go to town for a meeting so it would be late tonite. If you want to see it and go to the trouble, go to ProxiBid and look at the Saturday aug2 menu of auctions and it`s on page 15 of the 5th annual Summer Auction in white pine Tn

Thanks for any info.

Sounds like Gravely.

Somewhere around 1975, Gravely quit using their own engine and started using a Kohler engine. This will give you a rough idea of the age.

You are about to walk into a completely different world, hold on to your pants.

 

Gravelys came with just about every imaginable attachment known to walk behinds and the models are many to pick from, IMO one of the strongest and well built walk behinds a American Manufacturing co could offer spaning the late 50's to the early 80's when it was finally dropped when Gravely was bought out.

 

Prices vary state by state and age, condition of the tractor and attachments, they tend to derive a higher price when compared with say a Planet Jr or David Bradley but again it depends on several factors. The early ones with the Gravely engine is one of the higher priced ones.

 

In the end what is it worth to you ?

I believe the tiller is newer, but still a Gravely.  It's probably off a unit 20 years newer and they still bolted up from my understanding.

All the attachments pictured will work with the wb shown. Rigged fuel tank, the original one must of rotted out. It's still on there, if the tag on it is still readable, it will give you the model and year it was built.

That I don't think is a tiller. It is a slow-turning rotary cultivator. If you wanted to go deep you used their rotary plow.
