Gravely Manuals . com?

Does anyone have any news on the Gravely manual site? I have tried off and on for the past year to get on to that site, and it always times out, I never get in. I think once I made it to the front page but never been able to go on into and download a manual. I have used that site many times to help myself, and others in this forum for reference material. I hope we don't lose it.

If you have any tricks on getting in, I would appreciate it. Like I said, it seems the site still exists, but it sits there and tries to load for a minute or so and then gives up. I am using Firefox, maybe another browser would work better?

Re: Gravely Manuals . com?

I don't feel like fouling up my browser yet for this problem. I just tried microsoft edge browser, same thing, only it doesn't try as hard as Firefox does. Firefox tries for at least 30 seconds, edge only tries for about 10 seconds.

Now that I think about it more, I wonder if there are ads on that site? I have a add-blocker in my browser as a add-on. I also have a flash player block.

Same thing, just sits there and then says it is having trouble getting to that site. It must be a problem on my end somewhere, since you guys can get in ok. I might try it at work and see if it works ok there. Thanks for the help.

Re: Gravely Manuals . com?

franklin2,
I sporadically have experienced the same issue you are describing... one day it would open quickly while the next day nothing would open??? I never have been able to figure out what was causing this intermittent and frustrating issue! Others have reported a similar difficulty in opening files from that site - once before I sent an individual that could not open a file from the gravelymanuals.com site a link to just a single file from that site and it opened perfectly for him - try this just to see if you can open up one too:

https://www.gravelymanuals.com/pdf/C...v_Man_1174.pdf (it is just the service manual for a 1974 model L).

That didn't work either. Strange I can go anywhere I want except that particular site. I will have to try plan B.

Re: Gravely Manuals . com?

Why don't you try www.GTCOA.com while there join the gravely club if not already a member. Then click onward to manuals.

That's weird. I can't get to that site above either. Tried several different parts of that site via google also, all of them time out. I did try stevenchalmers site and can get right into that one.

Re: Gravely Manuals . com?

Are you getting any messages about the sites not being secure?

That may be the problem, your browser may be blocking them, or timing out trying to get a security cert that simply does not exist.

I had a some problem a while back with these two sites regarding this. once I understood it, I simple over rode the security block for those sites and everything is fine.

I have never used firefox, so I have no idea how all that works with that browser. Happy Chrome user here.

And when I click on the links right here in your post, my browser go to those sites with lightning speed?

I'm not really much of a computer expert, but it sure sounds like a problem/setting in Firefox, which again, I have no experience with.

Hopefully Richard, who maintains the Gravely Manuals site, will see this thread and offer some help.
