Wondered if you guys could help me out.  My stepdad passed away several months ago and i am trying to help my mom figure out what all he had in the shed.  He was in landscaping and had some equipment that i dont know much about.  One peice being a Gravely 5665.  It has several attachments including round shaped mower deck (bush hog?), some sort of trench cutter or auger lookin thing, a pull behind seat and i think there was a tiller.  Engine looks newer than the rest of it and it cranks up, runs like a top with no smoke.

 

I didnt want to put this machine up for sale because i knew he liked it alot but my mom doesnt like looking at the stuff and i told her i would find out about it so when we sold it we would ask enough for it and not just give it away.

 

Thanks for your help

The 12 hp walk-behind is probably the best all around gravely tractor.  It has plenty of power to run all the attachment gravely and others made for them.    It's about 50 pounds heaver than the 8 hp kohler model (my favorite) but is very desirable among the gravely fans.  

 

The rotary plow (you called a trencher) is a unique gardening attachment that really works the soil.  I haven't seen anything like it until recently when BCS had a similar tool for their two wheel machines.

 

In good working conditions the package would bring  between $750 - 1500, depending on how fast you wanted to sell it.   It hard these days to get top dollar in this throw-away society.

I agree with the poster above, this model Gravely is a really great tractor.  With the rotary plow, the mower/bush hog, and the sulky I'd start at $1500 to $1600 .......you can always negotiate down, but you can't negotiate up.

 

I'm not convinced that tiller is a part of this package.  It looks more like something to go behind a riding tractor, can you get some better pictures of it?

Thanks for the replys fellows. That helps out alot. I know he liked this thing I wish I could keep it. It would come in handy for sure and has some sentimental value to me. The tiller you see in the pics isn't the one I was talking about. I will be at moms again Saturday and I will get some better pics of everything. There's a lot to sell. Kubota B1550, Walker zero turn, Ryan walk behind plugger, and alot of other misc landscaping equipment and a 16ft tandem axle landscaping trailer.

Thanks again for the information

Looks like all modern quick hitch stuff.  The longer shaft (planter drill) if for planting shrubs or small trees.  Using the rotary plow gear box parallel to the ground it call drill 24" into the soil.
