Prior to a few weeks ago, I never heard of a gravely. Scanning the local letsgo app, I saw a 5240 with kidney deck and silky for $75. Sent the guy a message saying I would take it. Water in the engine and transmission. Tore it down and found galled aluminum on crank rod journal. Miked original specs. So ordered a rebuild kit and now runs like a top.

We don't get any real snow here so can't say how it would run a blower, bit handles the 40" kidney mower great. Just got done mowing the goat enclosure a few minutes ago. Now I am looking for other attachments. Then I was thinking I needed an L8 or C8 to handle the steep areas we have on the farm. I think I am getting GAS......

Enjoy the 5240 and post how much you like it. Also, add the area you are in to your signature, so we understand the challenges in your area.
