Got this from a guy in the UP of Michigan.  It came by Fastenal two days ago.   In all I am happy with it. Looks to be in good shape and I hope to be using it this summer.

Great find!

Didnt know the largeframes used a dual belt drive system!

I think you'll like it, I got to try one for the first time this fall and they are a blast to use.

Did you get that from the man that had the gravely and bolens attachments for sale that he got at auction?

Glad to see you got it been looking at that for a while, just couldn't justify it without the tractor.

The dual belt system is a nice upgrade from the single belt ones used on the tubeframes, occasionally I would get mine slipping and smoking.

Rear mount is also the way to go with this attachment, I completely caked up my brand new air filter on my 1050 using my front mounted one, It's way too close to the intake.

I tried mine out last summer and it was scary cool. I am gonna take my mower deck off of the 1476 and put mine back on.

I restored one of those large frame chippers for the back of my 1886. It does work great I love mine. I hope you get that thing fired up and into good use. They are fun to use.
