I finally got this back to the shop after a detour on somebodyelse's equipment.:eek:mg:

maybe it will run before winter
I have double set turf tires for it. It needs work on the steering brakes and the deck needs the bailing twine fished out of the housings.

I am still south of $1000 in it. I have $450 in the 2 machines I used to make it. Maybe $150 in parts and $200 in the deck and quick hitch.

When you consider that when Gravely (I mean Ariens - in their wisdom) stopped making these things, that an 8HP machine was selling new for around $5K - without wheels or any attachment - you still have a very reasonable investment going. Besides having fun working/playing with it, you're preserving a piece of history. At least that's how I've tried to sell it to someone that occasionally tries to count the ones that I have.
