We just got this nice, and I mean nice 16g Professional traded in at our shop.  Needless to say, she is going home with me!  The Kohler Mag 16 just purrs, only needing the starter bearings oiled so it wont squeel like a stuck pig when you start her.  All the clutches work as they should and the 50" mower deck is solid as a rock and looks to have been used very little.  I should have it paid off by the holidays.  I will be on the hunt for the rear lifting sleeve hitch.  Mike

What did they trade for ???? Can't buy some thing like that nowadays !!!! And I have never owned a gravely, but I know they are quality machines. I know some one here on pei that is a collector of gravelys. Looks like a well looked after tractor. Lucky you. Noel

He trade that one and a  MTD/Cub Cadet 1050 in for a new Cub Cadet XT2 with a 46 fabricated deck and a 3 stage snow thrower.  He said he didnt want to give what the snow blowers go for that fit the Gravely.  I dont need the tractor to move snow, but I might play some with the blade.  I have my 7'6" Western blade on my truck to take care of winter stuff, and it comes with a nice warm cab!  I find that I have little to no energy left after work to restore these anymore.  I wanted something different than the common stuff at shows and many shows I attend have no Gravelys there.  I might try to get a nice walk behind some day to go with her.   Mike

That is in very nice shape. I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but is the engine rear mounted?

I'm sure you will play with it in the snow, should have good traction with the engine on the rear, just like the old VW bugs. Noel

Nice score. Do yourself a favor and look for an engine guard for it too. I've read too many stories of guys backing into things and destroying the flywheel.

Yes an engine guard is wanted, along with the liftable hitch so I can use my moldboard plow.  And I would love to have an old air cooled VW Bug,  thats all my dad had when I was growing up.  Last one was a 1969 red hard top.  Hard to find one that isnt swiss cheese from rust or very expensive because its been restored.   Mike
