I did something I haven't done in 11 years. I mowed my yard with a gravely . 11 years ago this week my job went away do to a factory closing. 3 weeks before that my Gravely LI died, Engine problems. with no job it wasn't practical to fix it . about 6 weeks ago I was given a Gravely professional 12 with snow blade . Tonight after work I picked up a 40 in Kidney deck . So I am back mowing with a gravely
If I had a deck like that on my ‘91 professional 8, I wouldn’t have had to buy my Gravely ProTurn 152. I just couldn’t keep up with mowing the pastures and the woods, about 5+ acres total.
If I had to mow 5+ acres I would have bought the 50 inch deck that the gentleman had. The professional 12 has enough power to run the 50 inch deck I live on about 1/2 acre with about 40 x 60 garden with my yard size and layout the 40 mower made more sense . Plus I like that deck discharge is to the left back side of the deck so you can mow tight against stuff on either side of the deck
Every breath I take as a Free man was paid for with the blood of an American Soldier
From Concord and Valley Forge to the sands of Iraq
and mountians of afghanistan American soldiers have
paid the ultimate price For our Freedom.I am ever mindful
and for ever greatful for their sacrifice
My heros have always been American Soldiers
It's not what I did with my Gravely LI today... it's what I didn't do! It's so hot that the "starter and control module" doesn't have the energy to pull the strap or follow the machine around. Mowing needs to be done, but it will have to wait for better Gravely conditions.
I looked at it and walked away! But, I've discovered that if you park the lawn chair exactly right, the top of the mower gear box makes a good spot to rest a liquid refreshment.
Tween the 90+ heat every day and the miserable mosquitoes I dont go out unless I have to.
Ive sprayed so much mosquito spray on myself my legs are beet-red.
Weather here is so screwed up, first it rained every day by the buckets for 2 months and now its just dry and 90+ deg w/no rain. Always "too something"!
The weather said because of all the rain the mosquitoes were gonna be bad something about their eggs were already in the ground and they were right.
