Guys, i am kind of kicking myself right now. I was at an auction a week ago and there was a bunch of old gravely walk behinds and a few riders that sold fairly cheap. i should have bought a few of them and built one. Oh well, there will be more.

 

I actually did buy a reel mower attachment and sold it the next day and made a little. Making plans for this next year though. Lookout.

1973 816 with 38" snowblower and 1986 8179-G pushing snow off our pasture to make it easier for the horses to get to the grass.

Fluid, those are very nice Gravelys!  But I wonder, the whole pushing snow off the pasture, is that a labor of love or a love of tractor driving?

My wife would call :bs:  on that one, claiming I was just trying to get extra seat time.

 

Fluid, are the 38" and 44" cannons the same except for width? They look very similar.

To tell you the truth I not sure, there are older and newer versions.  Mine is a 1973 38" with 2 1/2" wings, so its a 43" path.  I could be wrong but I think the older ones are the same except the width. I will get back to on the cannons.   So you not buying my story? I thought that was a good one :)
