Was at a local equipment dealer today and saw a commercial 10 with snow blower and bush hog that has been in a barn for a number of years and not running. It has some lite surface rust but nothing bad. I usually am looking for wheel horses and have never worked on any gravelys so i was wondering how bad are they to bring back to life? Figuring tires, fluids, battery, oil seals, grease, and tune up but wondered how big of a project it usually is to bring one back without breaking the bank. I would love to bring it home but don't have the time for another major project. They wouldn't name a price and seemed to just want it gone. Any advice would be appreciated.
commercial 10 is it worth picking up

Check the Manuals Section for info. There seems to be quite a few Gravellys coming up in the passed year. Good Luck, Rick

if they truly just want it gone that means cheap. pick it up and maybe you can make some cash off of it?

Those old walkbehinds are pretty rugged. I have a Com 12 I have used for years with little problems. The worst thing I had happen to it was the high/low planetary wore out, not a bad job to change but could have been spendy. Those planetaries are 5 hundy+ new, sourced one off ebay from a newer model, replaced the orbit gear bushings and it's been fine ever since. Everything is gears, bearings, and bushings running in oil.
