More GVW can only mean one thing. More Gravely tonnage! That's a nice trailer, Steve.

Well I just received the title in the mail. She weighs 2,350lbs without a thing on it Grandpa's old trailer weigh 1,200lbs. So big difference and about 4,600lbs roughly can be added. Or about 4 riders with decks

Re: You'll never guess what I found. G.A.S. terramite time

If that's homemade, whoever made it did a good job, Steve. It looks like a fast digger, especially with the no nonsense forks on the end.
They might have to handicap you at the next terramite digging contest.
