"Shed Fresh" 816

I felt sorry for this tractor, so... it's now in my garage. The seller told me that he had to cut out the side of an old shed which was being torn down, in order to pull this, and a Cub Cadet out.

It's missing the flywheel weight, and air cleaner assy. The Onan CCKA turns, but I have'nt had a chance to investigate further.

The serial number (11502-A) makes it a 1972, which should also make it a limited slip differential tractor.

Re: "Shed Fresh" 816

Nice score, Dave. Seems to be raining 816's lately. Nice rear hitch. What's that thing bolted to the hood. Looks a lot like the TV aerial base we had on our house when I was young. Congrats!

Great save, Dave! A Gravely with a pintle mount for a deck gun! I love it! An altogether underrated option.

Well, I guess that shoots a hole in my TV aerial theory

Re: "Shed Fresh" 816

Hahahahaha. Nice score dave. I was wondering if you ever went to look at that 816. Did he give up the mower decks too? Shed fresh is right.

Re: "Shed Fresh" 816

Great ideas guys! I was thinking it might be a static electricity collector for the battery charging system.

Thanks for the well wishes.

Thanks John. And thanks for the "heads up". I finally got over there a week ago. Picked it up yesterday.

No, it was the tractor only. He's actually looking for a decent 50" deck so he does'nt have to try making one decent deck out of the two he has now.

Re: "Shed Fresh" 816

That thing on the hood would make a good conversation piece for a "what is it?" segment on TOH. Personally I thought it was for mounting the caution light needed when towing in broken down JDs and Cub Cadets.

Re: "Shed Fresh" 816

That's what he was telling me. He also said the truck side view mirror was used to keep an eye on keeping straight rows when using the rear tiller. It's got the right side pro shaft axle block as you know so I guess his story makes sense.

Either trying to keep straight rows, or make sure his wife was'nt coming after him.

I could tell that it had a rear axle pto shaft at one time. It's not there now, just the block.

Great score Dave. I thought the rig on the hood was the base for a lightning rod to power the coil. Guess I was wrong on that one.
