Ok, now I've got it straight, mine is a 210.
Sure would like to have that 225!
Mine has the same pin to hold the tilt. But, it's hooked in there backwards.
Must be to keep it from working loose.
My tailgate is secured differently to.
Mine was probably Jacobsen orange when new.

Nice to see more of these! Thanks for sharing pics. They were very well built!

I got the new hitch installed today! I can go back to the Gravely ball at any time.

This brand was very popular in the 60's and 70's  and they made implements for many brands of Garden Tractors, they also sold lawn Rollers , spike aerators ect.

 

Nice find!

I wanted to give you input on Kensico, as the son of the founder Paul Meyer of Mount Kisco, New York. We made the 210 and the 235 tractor attachments along with a spiked, roller, sulky, etc. we were the number one manufacture globally and did work for Gravely, Jacobsen, Bowlen's, Ford, international Harvester, Ariens, Toro, etc. and the best color was the forest green. For Jacobson we did them in orange. The decals were born the best and I applied them after The heavy gauge steel was spray painted. It is not a surprise that some of them are still around 50 years later considering how it is not a surprise the some of them are still around 50 years later considering Juan one well-made they were. The company was sold in 1974 or so to Vann Industries. Thank you for having an interest in Kensico as it will make my family smile. Patrick Meyer

Great info, all I had found was this;

 

kensico mfg it was a small operation in MT Kisco N.Y they made attachments for many brands including Gravely.He thinks they went out of business in the early seventies.
