I picked this gravely up recently, over in the uk this is a very rare find and not many about. The tractor works as it should and the loader is strong as is the drive. Unfortunately the rear fender is missing and someone has attacked it with red oxide😡. My plan is to eventually restore it to its original colour. I just wanted some identification of the tractor as I can't find anything on it, also was the loader made by gravely themselves?

Can't help but that is an interesting tractor. I like the look. If the painter had some understanding of masking or paint prep it could have been much nicer. What engine?

Nice score Harry! I will be watching this post with interest as I would like to know what the model is etc. Are there any serial # anywhere on the tractor?

I can't seem to find anything on the tractor, I think it is a 12hp Kohler engine.

It is a Kwik-Way loader. Here's a rebuild thread on one: http://gardentractor...loader-rebuild/

 

I can't tell if the tractor is an 812 or a 430.

Nice tractor. Download the manuals from our Manuals Section to help identify the tractor. Good Luck, Rick

I'm thinking it's an 800 series. Drive looks different from the 450 I had!

Yes, it appears to be an 800 series and yes it was serialized. Between the engine & transmission is an adapter plate. Look at the top edge in the center and tell us the S/N. Later 800/8000 series had adhesive tags attached to the front of the control tower (dash).

Sorry so late with a reply but I've had some life issues to deal with.

The serial number indicates it's a 1972. Somewhere on the motor shroud there should be a model and serial number stamped to tell what size the motor is. Lacking the numbers you can download the K series manual from Kohler for free and it should offer clues to help identify the motor. Type of carb, starter things like that.

It will be either a 10,12 or 14 H.P. making the tractor an 810, 812 or 814. Being a 72 the forward/reverse clutches should be the keyed type. Splined shaft chutches came a bit later. I have a 72 816 with the onan motor and I'm the author of the loader thread that was referenced in an earlier answer.

Any questions on either just ask and I'll do my best to answer.
