I purchased my G1A, $150.00, from a fellow north of Detroit, MI. Bought it to use on a one acre garden. An antique tractor show in Orville, AL and I was hooked on refurbishing old tractors. I grew up on a farm and Dad had one, not sure the make or model still looking for one like it. I now have two Midlands, one Jari and self propelled mower all 1950 or later. Pictures of all are in the gallery. But here's one.

My start to a life long hobby.IMG_1913.jpg This is day one with the roto head off the unit. Now it has the reduction wheels off and a mower head on. Picked it up along with four or five others (all dismantled) that will all be restored to some form of working condition.
More pics to later.

now if i was going to get another Gravely, it would have to have those 12" reduction wheels. I used to have to mow around the hog fences as a kid and if you hit a soft spot the tractor was on the ground using its 8" ones. We had at one time 1000's of hogs, in huge pens surrounded by electric fences. To keep the weeds/grass from shorting out the fence you had to mow around the lots every few weeks. I had the choice of using either a Bactold weed mower or the Gravely. The Bactold would shock you if it touched the fence wire and the gravely didnt. Thanks for posting that memory
