Re: 38" snowblower gear,,, how's it look?
Thanks to all who posted with good advice, I will be setting that auger adjustment, and draining, re-filling the gear box, and I must say you gentlemen are hilarious. I always thought the appeal of a gravely rider (besides the ruggedness) was the versatility, and need for for only one tractor. I bought the 812, simply to have the blower and drive shaft for my 816T. I was going to jettison the 812, keeping the mower deck for spare parts. But it soon became clear the 812 may have been neglected, but it was always repaired by a professional mechanic, and actually all there.(...well till the end and the hobbled effort at the frt wheel re-build I guess) But it's been re-powered at some point with a new K301, and has power for days, PLUS the hydraulic lift will come in handy lifting that 38" blower. So, now I have 2 gravely's and am hunting down more front mounted attachments.
Getting rid of the 816T is un-thinkable really, so here I sit, on two tractors, and it doesn't even hurt, who knew.
