Excellent mowing machine and a beast to push snow, but lacks the rear liftable hitch that I desire for plow days.  Tractor is stored indoors at my shop, runs excellent.   $1200 obo.   Thanks    Mike

Price edit to $1000 or trade for a plow day ready tractor such as a Sears SS16 w/3pt, quiet line Cub Cadet, narrow frame cub cadet, original cub cadet, bolens 1050 or what do you have to offer??    I could meet someone in northern Indiana or the south side of Indianapolis if that helps anyone.  Also, the Gravely has hyd lift, forgot to put that in the ad.   Mike

I love to have another gravely. None of my stuff has a rear hitch or I would trade lol. Have you looked for a rear lift. They come one ebay once in awhile.

I have been watching ebay since I put a depost on this tractor at my workplace last fall.  Nothing for the 16g professional.  Seen them for the older models like 816 ect. I like the 16g, but outfitting he for plow days is beyond my limited means.  I dont really need a tractor to mow with, my yard is small, only a small early 1960's Wheelhorse might be able to mow my yard.  I was looking at a Bolens 1050.  Just have to see whats available once I have cash in hand.    Mike

Didnt have a meter till I got it.  Had one that at 16 hours on it from a mower that got the key left on.  So I installed it, I have put 1/2 hour on it since I put the meter on.  But total hours are unknown.  Motor is strong, no smoke, has dual exhaust, plenty of material on both foward and reverse clutches.  PTO clutch feels good but haven't tried with the mower deck on. Came with the blade installed and I have left her that way.  Been using her to plow the walks at work and the shop garage door entry.  If I had the cash in hand, there is an 816 with the big Onan twin nearby I might get, it has the hitch on it that i need.  Engine has no spark.  Thats an easy fix for me.  Onans are my favorite twins.

Is there an option to build the hitch for this?

I suspect someone good with fabricating and welding could build one.  You have the secondary rock shaft just ahead of the engine, and its mounting brackets/bearings for the frame.  A reach rod forward to the middle rock shaft, a reach bar down to the liftable hitch, then the hitch itself.   There are pics from the Gravely parts manual online, but no dimensions.  Seems by the time the 16g came out, most folks were either just using the front implement option or just mowing.  I haven't seen to many of this era rider with the hitch, where as the older ones like an 816 more commonly seem to have them.  Mike

My 450 has the hitch. I will need to get a new switch for the lift and check it out when it warms some.
