I have to say that I am very pleased with how strong these gravely's are. I have been using the 430 alot to haul things around the yard. Its got a ton of power and I love the way the transmission works.
I have been using it more than the Bolens LOL Posted Image
Next time I have it out I'll snap a few photos of it in action. :smile1:

when i was growing up, my dad had gravely's and they are all tanks! the walk behinds included, i saw my dad cut down small trees with the brush hog. and the riders have all that weight over the rear axle from the factory you don't need wheel weights. very tough machines.

I found out That the walk behinds used the same transmissions as the riders did.

That's true for the 400 series riders, same trans as the Commercial two wheel tractors. Which is pretty much the same as the 500, 5000, and Pro 2 wheel tractors. Gravely made a different trans for the 800 and up riders. It had 8 forward speeds and 4 reverse speeds and can hit just over 8 mph.

My dad picked up an L-1 last year, that thing is definitely a tank. I'd imagine their riders are even tougher.
