Those old Gravelys are amazing machines. There is nothing new on the market now, that can even come close to what they can do.

i know, its a beast for sure, i have been trying to find some attachments for it, but people want some serious money for them.

Those are nice machines. Quite a few farms around here used them for brush cutting were they cant fit tractors.

Attachments are in good supply and cheap. Best source is Ebay, as a lot of Gravely guys buy and sell there. Except for some really rare attachments, most can be purchased for less than $100.00 each. I see 30" mowers go for $35.00 - $45.00 all the time. sickle bar mowers for $75.00 - $25.00. There is also a Gravely classified ad group at Yahoo Groups, as well as a Gravely collectors group there.

Thats a cool machine, sure beats doing it with a trimmer and brush blade. How large is the engine and how wid is the deck or its widest point?

THEGOLDPRO
08-15-2007, 10:28 PM
honestly no idea on engine size, or deck size, im assuming like 30inches, or so.

That mower is 30 inches. You can put 2 blades on it with a special spacer. They also made heavy blades that were close to 3/8" thick. We used to mow the steep banks around our farm pond with one of these, still have it, procedure was one of us would hold onto the end of a 20 foot rope tied around the front where the bushhog pivots, the other would walk behind. Now I do it all with the ASV RC30, and don't miss the gravely a bit!:laugh:

Gravely does not make the old style 2-wheel tractors anymore. However, they are now selling a hydrostatic drive tractor that can be used with the old attachments. They are also building some of the old attachments again to fit these new tractors.
Old Gravely tractors are pretty easy to find used. There are thousands of them still in use, and many parts are still available from Gravely.

I had a chance to buy a machine just like that I kick myself everyother day for not doing so...My buddy bought it and uses it for bush hogging all the time. I've borrowed it from him several times and its an amazing machine...
Worst part I could of bought it for 100$

It is old enough to have the Gravely engine on it. That makes it probably an early 60's - early 70's model.

Its a fine example that American manufacturers can make a productive machine that can last.

I stumbled across this on the craigslist and thought I'd post it for any of you who may be in FL looking for one of these machines. I am not the guy selling nor do I know who he is but like I said there seemed to be a lot of interest in the machines so I thought I'd post a link.

Gravley L that runs, has a bush hog and tiller. Come with the dual whell adapters. I was going to part it out but this will make someone a good project to restore. Needs tires!

I never really understood what a bushhog or brushhog is. Maybe they're two differtent things. But what is different between that and a walkbehind. It's still just a spinning blade ,right? Please clue me in.
