I am NOT even sure if this is a trade name ..

There is one advertised on Craig's List, but the owner does not seem anxious to sell . Its a one wheeler  .. from the 40s , a precursor  to the two wheeled Gravely  ???.  I do not think that a one wheeled  gasoline powered plow works very well ..

I have found zero info  on  this thing ..

The 'two wheel Gravely' goes back to at least the early thirties.

Not as compact, the drive wheel may be from a large wheel-barrel ..A large pulley, thru a shaft to a chain drive. I have a pic of it in "My pictures"...but, from there  ???

Ref  :  Craig's List (York, PA) Iron Horse  ..many pics there .

   I spotted a little walk behind like the one auburn posted at the fall auctionauction 2014 009.JPG , it went for $60.  Maybe the price is a little hi???  still a neat little thing.

looks like a George, and the price would have been very low.

It's a George. I had one for awhile last year. Neat little machine but really noisy on gravel or concrete.

no im not calling you cheap, every man has his target price, willing to pay. Most George tractors sell for a good sum, as there aint many of them around. Around here they go for $150 and up, depending on the attachments or lack of them.
