From everything  I have read the Gravely is a very competent garden tractor And the engine location enhances traction.

It should be a good loader platform. The only drawback I could imagine is the engine location would prevent adding more ballast?

The issue with most Gravely tractors is a light front end.  With that taken care of, and the extra 100lbs on the, already massive, Gravely rear end --that would be one heck of a tractor to toy around with.

I'm no expert on them, BUT, think this one is front engine???  Have seen very few of this "Professional" series and well made, but was thinking was front engine like many others by this time.  If you look, the rear does not stick way out in back like on past models. Correct me if wrong!

 

Duh! Just noted other pictures of tractor and engine in rear!  NEVER MIND!

Things are going well, the house is mostly unpacked. My tractors start coming home this weekend. It's going to take a while to get organized again. But that'll give me chance to get rid of some things.
