Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0
As I learnt from Dad when I was a kid in the 50s, we had an american bought by Grandpa in 1939 and another gardener of his friends bought one in 1940 after testing with success Grandpa's D and it was an english. Dad explained that the war made the american gravelys impossible to be imported and the result was that the D would be made in England. It remains a few parts of this D as the owner left her when he changed in late 50s for an Imperial D. In my garage still is the big cleated wheel, some aluminium parts, pinions and shafts and the decal (this decal is at J Langille so you can see it) andyou can see that the town of production was "Totnes" devon. Later the factory of Gravely Overseas went to BUckfastleigh, 5 miles from Totnes, exactly at "Dart Mill" (Dart being the name of the river)Now there is an historical steam railway for tourists between both towns.
This is the history as I know since my childhood
