Back in mid-March a guy was asking questions about a Com-10A on Smokstak.  I saw that he was also in Misery [Missouri] where I often travel in the company truck and offered some interest in his Gravely.  Always wanted a Kohler powered walk behind although I get along fine with my Gravely engine tractors and I sure as heck didn't need more sitting around.  Long story short I met the fellow,  toured his awesome collection, including several walk behinds, and bought the Gravely.  He lived just a few miles from my brother so he dropped the machine there.  My plan was to use brothers tractor/loader to put the Gravely in the back of my company truck and deliver it right to my house.  Brother keeps his tractor locked up so I had to wait until he came this way [mothers day] to get my newest toy delivered.   Sunday it finally hit the ground here. Tonight I filed the points and it popped right off so I went to tilling the driveway.  :smilewink:  

Don't wanna tear out any good grass! 

I already have a good [totally rebuilt] Commercial 40 finish mower that will work perfectly on this tractor.  The deck was yellow when I got it 15 years ago but all my Gravely tractors were red so I repainted it red/white.

That choice of paint has now turned into a poor decision but how could I have known.... 

Believe its about a '68 model. I'll look up the serial # soon to verify.

Here is the obligatory picture.   Shown with the tiller [rotary cultivator].

This tractor was in a small engine and mower shop for many years.  The owner passed on the shop went out of business.  It had been fixed, serviced and waiting for sale.  The carb, air filter, points, condenser and fuel pump are all new. 

Very soon it will get another trip - this time to where I work for a date with the steam cleaner.  Other than the rattle-can job on the hood [which should be white] it will clean up decent.

Nope, that's a rear hitch for hooking up a sulky or a cart. The 10 horse Kohler is pretty heavy itself.

You're getting soft in your old age Kenny!    :poke:

I have a couple genuine Gravely ride-on seats that'll go on there.

Are you talking about your 10A or my 450?

Sulky seats for a walk behind.   Your 450 should already have a seat.

I have the bare pan, but that is all!

Put a cheap boat seat on there.  That's what I did to my 424.
