Free gravely

I was having a rough month this month. Feeling rough, work issues my anxiety issues acting up. A friend called me and said" I have something that belongs with you" Sat. Morning I picked up a professional 12 walk behind, not a saved from the scrap yard needs a ton of work tractor it is a beautiful excellent condition good running tractor with a snow blade. I told him the value of the machine . His answer was there are things worth more than money. Getting the nicest gravely I have ever had is a blessing, but finding out how truly good a real friend is is even more of a blessing

Re: Free gravely

I'd say those are a couple of great reasons to put a smile on your face.

How about some pics of your new beast?

As much as I love my Gravely's the Grillo will till circles around it. I am on the hunt for a mower deck

It shows 900 hours . I know where it came from there is no way it has 900 actual hours it spent its life on the 10th floor helipad to push snow I doubt that it has 200 actual running hours. I am on the lookout for a mower deck. Right now cash is a little tight. So I may have to wait a few weeks unless I sell a rifle I have up for sale

Re: Free gravely

Nothing hills and furrows like a rotary plow. That tiller might be nice but I'll take my Gravely in the Garden every time. Pick up a rotary plow and get it setup correctly. Nothing else like it.

Pretty nice unit with the steering brake and all!

Be like a river, Keep pushing forward!
