All the tools of the day pictured. Broke up some soil, moved/ unearthed the huge rocks and dug up stumps with the Hoe, The 64 Landlord that I just got on Friday after it took a 10 year nap, is hauling rocks and various debris. The 8123's job was obvious I think.

They sure work like dozers. Good seeing pics of the family hard at work.

Don't you just hate it when things attach themselves like that?

I've wanted a splitter for years, I'm getting tired of doing things the hard way. Most wood I split pops easy but there are some that make me feel like a just ran a marathon just doing one piece. Now I need to find a source for logs and hope they're still cheaper than cut and split cords.

A guy I work with is moving to Fla next year and didn't need it anymore so I bought it.........real cheap. He brought it into work and we did the deed between our shifts.
It's not a gravely (MTD 25 ton) but I'm going to make a hitch adapter to tow it with the 816. I'll do a thread on that when the time comes so I guess it's gravely related.

Nice p/u Don.

Gotta admit that makes me jealous.

One of these years I'll do it.

When the local fair comes and goes I know summer is gone....

It really goes so fast. Seems like just the other day I was takeing blowers off and readying the tillers. Now in installing blowers and snow plows at work.

Kinda rubs salt in the wound when you put 100 snow blowers together at work. And we have sold a hand full already

Wow Don. Wow!

Wanna make a healthy 200% profit instantly?

Any Gas powered splitter I see runs $1000+

That's great. I've got wood in VT I haven't taken down because I know I need a splitter first.

Any Gas powered splitter I see runs $1000+ I've looked at CL and found basically the same thing. I've even gone to auctions and they start at a grand.

That's great. I've got wood in VT I haven't taken down because I know I need a splitter first. Might be able to work out a loaner program if you want.

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

Well, while we're on the topic of log splitters. I drug mine out of the woods this weekend with the 816 after having not used it since January. Fired right up and split about a cord of wood before it met its first piece of wood in 20 years that it couldn't split. Instead, something else gave....

Wow, quite shocked at that one. Can't say it owes me anything though. 3 engines and who knows how many cords of wood over the years. Good thing I have an almost new spare next door at a family members house.

Believe it or not, that's fixable. If that had happened to me I'd have been amazed too.
