Surfing the web I found a bolens 7173-H for $200, no deck... but looked solid so I sent him a message, got tons of pictures and one of the hour meter showing 120 some odd hours, kohler kt17 series 2 motor and the tractor honestly looks like it has sub 200 hours on it... I offered 125 and he took it, so was this a good buy? Front mid and rear PTO and has the 3 point on the rear

huh... another poat I answqered to from my stupid phone that didnt post.

 

yeah that's an Ariens/ NH.    I wish I could find a good Kohler opposed twin by itself for that price.... yeah you stole that thing. I paid more for 2 of my Ariens, was non running.... and my 3rd was also not running when I got it, and only than that and it didn't have a deck at the time either...... and yours is much better shape overall.

heck it cost me $75 just for a sleeve hitch without a tractor from another guy

yeah, you done good....

Serious good deal! Ariens built on the 931 series frame.

The true die hard Gravely guys say that's no Gravely, it is an Ariens. I was told that one day. And I smiled because that is why I got it.
Ariens attachments that have a model number starting out with 831 will fit on.

So I think I'm going to sell the gravely guys, as nice as it is I want to finish my JD 318 build and I bought the thing to sell it, so if anyone wants a good deal let me know! I cleaned it up and it looks much better then it does in pictures posted, fresh oil change and trans change, new air filter
