Even a Gravely red trash can. Now you only need to paint the tractor to match.

It looks like you do have the two wheel tractor cart by the foot rests.......

The rider cart has a short tongue and no foot rests.

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

I don't have a GRAVELY cart, but I converted my OHIO STEEL cart to the GRAVELY hitch system and gave it a long enough tongue to work with my bager in place:





The OHIO STEEL cart is a bit larger than the GRAVELY cart. I use mine for the 200' trip down the drive with the trash cans every week.

I also converted my spreader to the GRAVELY hitch system:

Spent some quality time cleaning up the 69 432. I think I might need to go into the for/rev part of the trans-axle and I don't like working on them when they are dirty. Cleaned up nice.

Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

Testing the governor on the 16G.

I mowed a patch of bottom land by the stream at the back of my property. It is about 3 feet lower than the yard and just a few inches above the stream bank. As a result it is often too wet and soggy to mow. With our dry weather, the ground wasn't at all soggy. The grass was close to 2 feet tall. The 16G and 50" MMM are really not the right tool for the job, but we gave it a shot. The tractor did remarkably well. The motor bogged a little but the governor compensated really well. The cut crass laying where it fell pretty much prevented me from getting the grass to look even, but what the hello? It is better than it was. The snakes will move on to another place, I'm sure. I'll go over area this again in a few days after the cut grass dries a bit.

By the way, I mowed this in 2H

2-H huh. I would have used 4-L for that kind of application. Up N I have faced those criteria a few times. Once it drys some you'll probably be able to make it look nice.

Just curious as to what height cut your deck is set to?

BTW - thanks for the pics. The post is much better with them included Mikey.

Hi Al!

I had the deck set to the highest cut level. I keep it there all the time, actually.

Doing it in 2H was really a case of just seeing if it could do it. I have more of the same growth on the other side of the stream. I really have no need to mow that part but I was thinking I might get out the 812 with the 40" MMM and see what that can do. I have found the little 12 hp motor has as much ooomph as any of the three 16 hp tractors I own.

Heck, I may even try the Ellis Challenge with it . . . . . .

You go Mikey. I'm not exactly certain but my sense is that would contradict (depending on the feat accompli - not a mis-spell feat not fait - little play on words) something Richardtx has asserted.

Not that I want to start any debate with Richard of course. I always like to hear, and respect, what he has to say, about anything.

I just think a challenge from a K12, a very interesting thing to see. I'm guessing the thumper on your 816 could beat the K12 if there were any way to test it.

My Jackson 17cu ft cart is also a little larger than the Gravely cart, We have 3.5 acres and its used to move everything from Weed trimmers/brush cutters, chain saws, dirt , brush pilled so high you cant see the cart you name it its been in that cart.
