Picked up a Gravely 8183 T this weekend.   Overall looks to be in good shape was repowered with Kohler Magnum 18,  originally had an Onan engine according to the owner.  For those with eagle eyes I know that is 50 inch mower and seat is from a Sidekick.  Oh yeah and the red is probably not right and somebody painted the wrong model numbers.  But runs and it's mine and I like it - since I've always wanted a Ford N series tractor but never had room for one I might just go with light gray and ford chassis red!

 

One thing though,  it has the front mounting weldment/bracket but does not have 4 bolt box for running my front mount attachments from my walk behind.  If anyone knows a source for one let me know.  Also I'll either have to make up drive shafts or find those as well.

Nice Gravely Dave,

In addition to needing the front drive adapter to operate your attachments, you will also need the axle shaft as well as the driveshaft. You will need a setup for the 800 series as the frame is shorter than the G series. Some 8000 series tractors have long frames as well. I would suggest looking in the manual section on the forum or GTCOA for the correct parts you will need.

 

Mike
