Re: new shoes for the 812
I've owned a few of the L series two wheelers. I still use my 65 and have darn near every attachment for it some place or another. I was visiting with an old friend of mine who has three 812 all inside. They're in various stages of disassembly, two motors and a parts unit and two rough mower decks. He's offered them to me since he's up in years and doesn't want to fix stuff anymore. What's the general opinion, it it worth pulling this stuff home? Oh - and theres one that I don't remember the model of, a 4xx something or other.
Don't take me wrong - I love Gravelys and always have. It's just that I'm running out of room with two Massey-Ferguson MF10 and attachments, the L8 and her attachments and my most recent, a MF GC2310. Therefore my question - is it worth dragging all this home? I'm not sure about the engines but I know they're getting hard to find. I don't know if I want to get involved in re-powering unless therm's a adapter plate available.
