Even in highest gear?

Yep! Maybe 5 MPH if I'm lucky!

Very nice tractor. The 450 is the Cadillac of the 400 series. Yours is in far better shape than most I've seen. I like the fact the Onan on yours has the oil pressure gage, my 816 with the same motor doesn't. Gravely opted not to carry it over to the 816's.

Today, I went after what I thought was the rest of the parts for this machine! NOT! But I'll get into that later. I did get the rotary plow and snowblade for it. I think all this was bought together. Anyways, here's some pics of todays haul.

Here's the plow and I think all that is needed to attach it.

I got the original seat pan! Just needs a new cushion.

The snow blade and mount for it.

Some goodies that I am unsure of. I'm pretty sure the wheels are not part of this package.

And a set of 8x12, 8.50X12 tire chains still in the bag. They are 4 link.

There was a trailer/cart sitting in the garage. I looked closer and it had the Gravely ball hitch on it. Not a Gravely cart, but a heavy built piece. I'll get it next week.

Those wheels look like anti scalp wheels or possibly the wheels off a brinly cultivator.

They appear to be stock Gravely wheels, Alan. Might have been used on several different applications! They still have the little hack saw looking indents towards the edges, so I don't think it was used too much. Does leak some of the gear oil, may need to look closer for a seal leak!

Nice score Kenny.

Not sure what I'll do with it all! A good offer might buy it!

Nice batch of extras, the picture with the rods and the wheels in it I'm not sure those go to anything. The wheels look like regular push mower wheels.

The seat pans a good score and it seems to be in real good shape, it should look like the attachment. They used the same seat for the estate sulky too.

My seats in real good shape but it's the original cover and there are a couple of holes. The estate sulky is pretty hard to come by complete so I want to have another cover made and store the original.

On the rods & wheels, I cannot find anything in the parts lists for the rods. But the long one has some yellow paint on the spring and the threaded part on the end. If I can remember, I'll get a pic of that end.

I'm sure the wheels were for something else. Thinking the short rod was too.

I got to pick up the cart today! It's about 33"X60" and is a Kensico attachment. The wheels have grease zerks. Seems to be in good shape.

That's a nice cart. However gravely made their own and you can tell by the tongue it was made to work with a gravely. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It should serve you well for many years. Might want to think about better tires for it if you end up keeping the package.

Those look like wheel barrow tires on it. Have tubes in them and aired right up good enough to roll it. It is heavy and I like the tail gate on it. Been Looking for more info on Kensico Attachments, but no luck so far on the cart. When I have time, I want to see if a regular hitch can be installed easily. Right now, I can run that ball hitch bolt through a sleeve hitch.
