Re: The Gravely Timeline Thread

Well I was informed my 8199KT is a 1981 vintage! By the serial # plate !

In it's day the six gun was as common as the cell phone and just as annoying when it went off in the theater!!! A Government strong enough to give you everything you need, is also strong enough to take everything you have!

So for a tractor this vintage is 682 run hours about average or not so much??? I know the 20 HP Kohler Magnum was a transplant so not sure how many hours is really on it!

That's only 18 hours per year. It took 3 years to break it in properly at that rate.
I'd say it's excellent!

Make sure the hour meter is working. Mine showed 1100 hours and the hour meter was broke. 682 hours is possible but it makes me wonder why they had to transplant a new engine...
