It's a Gravely.
They mowed the rear fenders off and did a repaint.



Might be CAT's... :poke:

It's a 400 series Gravely, as it's a 2 spd., plus hi/lo. Either a 424, 430 or a 432. The 450's had twins. If that red paint poking out is original, than that would probably make it a 424 or a 432. Came out in 1967 I believe, and was replaced by the 4 spd. 800 series after a few years.

I like it! Not 50's for sure, and looked Gravely to me too, but still neat!  This isn't a Real Cat built by Gravely to sell at dealers??? Isn't there some Cat tractors like that out there? Was thinking there was???  GT's were like snowmobiles in 70's. They got popular and about every manufacturer in States were making offers or rebadges  for a few years at least.  Just thought could be that?

As far as I'm aware, the only 'Caterpillar' branded small tractor was built in the late 90's/early 2000's.
